Completing the Post-Upgrade Tasks

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

After you finish upgrading your computers to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, go through this checklist and perform the following tasks before you resume monitoring.

Post-Upgrade Checklist

  1. After you upgrade agents, check the Health Service Watcher state view and compare the number of agents that are listed and that are in a healthy state with the same count and health state from the pre-upgrade checklist.

  2. Review the event logs on the RMS and all management servers for new errors.

  3. Perform a test failover and failback of all clustered components.

  4. Sort alerts by the last-modified column to review new alerts.

  5. Check the CPU utilization and disk I/O on your database servers that support Operations Manager 2007 R2 components to ensure that they are functioning normally.

  6. In the Operations console, open the state, alert, and performance views to note the latency when you open these views.

  7. If you have Reporting installed, open the reporting view and run a generic performance report to ensure that reporting is functioning correctly.

  8. In the Operations console, open the Authoring view to ensure that it populates correctly.

  9. If you did not upgrade your sealed management packs before the upgrade, do so now.

  10. Re-enable notifications and connectors and then test them.

  11. Review My Workspace to ensure that it has populated as expected.

  12. Re-deploy any agents that you uninstalled during the upgrade process.

  13. Run the following SQL query to clean up the localizedtext and publishmessage tables.

    -- Create temp table to speed up looking for a PublisherId when we know the MessageId
    BEGIN TRY
    CREATE TABLE #PublisherMessageReverseIndex(MessageStringId UNIQUEIDENTIFIER, 
       MessageId INT)
    CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX #PublisherMessageReverseIndex_CI ON #PublisherMessageReverseIndex(MessageStringId)
    INSERT INTO #PublisherMessageReverseIndex (MessageStringId, MessageId)
    SELECT MessageStringId, MessageId
    FROM dbo.PublisherMessages
    
    -- Create temp table of message lengths, message id, and Message Hash with the
    -- Message String Id so that we can efficiently determine whether a given message
    -- is duplicated.  The duplicate messages that are generated by the converted MP have
    -- different PublisherId's, but everything else is identical.  INDEX this TABLE so that
    -- we can look up quickly by the MessageStringId and also by values we expect to see
    -- duplicated.
    CREATE TABLE #LTHashStrings (MessageStringId UNIQUEIDENTIFIER, 
     LTValueLen INT, 
     LTValueHash VARBINARY(32),
     MessageId INT NULL)

    -- Create temp table for the Orphaned PublisherStrings that we find.  These
    -- are rows in PublisherMessages whose corresponding Events have already been groomed away.
    -- They still have corresponding rows in LocalizedText.  We will not add rows for PublisherMessages,
    -- which are not for a duplicated message.
    
    CREATE TABLE #OrphanedPublisherStrings (PublisherId UNIQUEIDENTIFIER, 
    MessageStringId UNIQUEIDENTIFIER)
    CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX #OrphanedPublisherStrings_CI ON #OrphanedPublisherStrings(MessageStringId)
    
    -- Create temp table to use in looking up whether a PublisherMessages row still
    -- has a corresponding Event.  Event_01 etc. do not have an index on PublisherId, so we
    -- do not want to do a query that keeps seeking into EventAllView.
    -- If a PublisherId occurs multiple times in the Event tables, we will only need it
    -- one time in our temp table, hence the unique clustered index with IGNORE_DUP_KEY.
    -- This keeps the temp table relatively small and will save time when 
    -- we want to see which PublisherMessages are orphaned.
    
    CREATE TABLE #EventAllPublishers (PublisherId UNIQUEIDENTIFIER)
    CREATE UNIQUE CLUSTERED INDEX #EventAllPublishers_CI ON #EventAllPublishers (PublisherId)
    WITH (IGNORE_DUP_KEY = ON)

    INSERT INTO #EventAllPublishers(PublisherId) 
    SELECT PublisherId 
    FROM EventAllView
    
    -- Populate the first Temp table to determine which messages are duplicated
    INSERT INTO #LTHashStrings (MessageStringId, LTValueLen, LTValueHash, MessageId)
    SELECT LTStringId, len(LTValue), HashBytes('SHA1', LTValue), MessageId
    FROM dbo.LocalizedText LT 
    JOIN #PublisherMessageReverseIndex PM ON PM.MessageStringId = LTStringId
    
    -- Create the second table to determine which messages are duplicated.  
    CREATE TABLE #LTCountByMessage( LTValueLen INT, 
    MessageId INT, 
    LTValueHash VARBINARY(32), 
    MsgCount INT)
    CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX #LTCountByMessage_CI ON #LTCountByMessage(LTValueLen, MessageId, LTValueHash)
    
    -- Populate second message for duplicate message detection by scanning INDEX of
    -- the first one and doing a grouped count.
    INSERT INTO #LTCountByMessage (LTValueLen, MessageId, LTValueHash, MsgCount)
    SELECT LTValueLen, MessageId, LTValueHash, COUNT(1) 
    FROM #LTHashStrings
    GROUP BY LTValueLen, MessageId, LTValueHash
    
    -- Now that we are set up to detect both Orphans and duplicated messages by
    -- joining to our relatively small (and correctly indexed) temp tables,
    -- determine the OrphanedPublisherStrings that have duplicate messages
    INSERT INTO #OrphanedPublisherStrings (PublisherId, MessageStringId)
    SELECT PM.PublisherId, PM.MessageStringId 
    FROM dbo.PublisherMessages PM

How to Enable Subscriptions

After the upgrade has finished, use the following procedure to re-enable subscriptions.

To enable subscriptions

  1. Open the Operations console using an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, select the Administration view.

    noteNote
    When you run the Operations console on a computer that is not a management server, the Connect To Server dialog box appears. In the Server name text box, type the name of the Operations Manager 2007 management server to which you want to connect.

  3. In the Administration pane, expand Administration, expand Notifications, and then click Subscriptions.

  4. In the Subscriptions pane, right-click each subscription, and then click Enable.
