Upgrading System Center 2012 SP1 Orchestrator to System Center 2012 R2

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator

This guide will show you how to upgrade from System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Orchestrator to System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator.

WarningWarning
If you are planning to upgrade two or more System Center components, it is important to start by reading the Upgrade Sequencing for System Center 2012 R2 topic.

The order in which you perform component upgrades is important. Failure to follow the correct upgrade sequence might result in component failure for which no recovery options exist. The affected System Center components are:

  1. Orchestrator

  2. Service Manager

  3. Data Protection Manager (DPM)

  4. Operations Manager

  5. Configuration Manager

  6. Virtual Machine Manager

  7. App Controller

TipTip
Because your data center must keep running while you upgrade System Center 2012 components one at a time, after you have upgraded the Orchestrator servers to System Center 2012 SP1, you can run:

  • A System Center 2012 integration pack on a System Center 2012 component.

  • A System Center 2012 SP1 integration pack on a System Center 2012 SP1 component.

  • A System Center 2012 SP1 integration pack on a System Center 2012 R2 component (except for Virtual Machine Manager).

  • A System Center 2012 R2 integration pack on a System Center 2012 R2 component (Virtual Machine Manager).

No other configurations are supported.
