How to Upgrade a Management Group from an Operations Manager 2007 R2 RMS

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Operations Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

You upgrade your System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 management group to System Center 2012 – Operations Manager from the root management server (RMS) when the computer hosting the Operations Manager 2007 R2 RMS meets the minimum supported configurations for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager.

You should first upgrade other features, such as secondary management servers, agents, and gateways before running the final upgrade on the management group. For more information about each upgrade path and the order in which to perform each upgrade task, see Upgrade Path Checklists for Operations Manager.

Before you follow any of these procedures, make sure that you verify that the servers in your Operations Manager 2007 R2 management group meet the minimum supported configurations for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager. This will help you determine whether you need to add any new servers to your management group before you upgrade. For more information, see Supported Configurations for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager.

If the computer hosting the RMS does not meet the minimum supported configurations, you must run upgrade from a secondary management server. For more information, see How to Upgrade a Management Group from an Operations Manager 2007 R2 Secondary Management Server.

To upgrade a management group from an RMS

  1. Log on to the computer that hosts the root management server with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for your Operations Manager 2007 R2 management group and a local administrator on the computer. You also require SQL Server Administrator rights on both the operational database server and the data warehouse server.

  2. On the System Center 2012 – Operations Manager media, run Setup.exe, and then click Install.

  3. On the Getting Started, System Center 2012 - Operations Manager Upgrade page, review the features that will be upgraded and added, and click Next.

    ImportantImportant
    The Operations Manager data warehouse will be added if it does not already exist.

  4. On the Getting Started, Please read the license terms page, review the license terms and select the option I have read, understood, and agree with the license terms, and then click Next.

  5. On the Select installation location page, accept the default value of C:\Program Files\System Center 2012\Operations Manager, or type in a new location or browse to one. Then click Next.

  6. On the Prerequisites page, review and address any warnings or errors that the Prerequisites checker returns, and then click Verify Prerequisites Again to recheck the system.

    noteNote
    SQL Server Full Text Search must be enabled. For more information, see Full-text Search Overview.

  7. If the Prerequisites checker does not return any warnings or errors, the Prerequisites, Proceed with Setup page appears. Click Next.

  8. If a data warehouse was not already installed, it is created, and you must configure it as follows:

    1. In the Configuration, Configure the data warehouse database page, type the name and instance of the SQL Server database server for the database server that will host the System Center 2012 – Operations Manager data warehouse database in the Server name and instance name box.

    2. Accept the default value of Create a new data warehouse database or select an existing data warehouse.

    3. In the Database name, Database size (MB)Data file folder, and Log file folder boxes, we recommend that you accept the default values. Click Next.

      noteNote
      These paths do not change if you connect to a different instance of SQL Server.

  9.

Before the account is validated, an error icon appears to the left of the Domain\Username box.

  10. Enter the credentials for a domain account in each box. The error icons disappear after account validation. Click Next.

  11. On the Configuration, Ready To Upgrade page, click Upgrade.

  12. When the upgrade is finished, the Upgrade complete page appears. Click Close.
