Updated: November 1, 2013

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

This procedure upgrades a stand-alone Operations console from System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 to System Center 2012 – Operations Manager. Perform this procedure locally on the computer that has a stand-alone Operations console installed. You should only upgrade stand-alone Operations consoles after you have upgraded your management group. You do not have to perform this procedure to upgrade Operations consoles that are installed locally on a management server. 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 proceed, ensure that your server meets the minimum supported configurations for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager. For more information, see Supported Configurations for System Center 2012 - Operations Manager.
