How to Upgrade a Web Console to System Center 2012 - Operations Manager

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

If you have a stand-alone System Center 2012 – Operations Manager web console server, you can upgrade it to System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Operations Manager.

Before you begin the upgrade process, make sure that your server meets the minimum supported configurations. For more information, see System Requirements: System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager.

noteNote
When you upgrade the web console, any customizations that were made to the web.config file after the web console was installed will be reset.

If you made changes after you set up your web console to either enable or disable Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the SSL settings will be reset during upgrade. To resolve the issue, you must make changes to the registry key before you upgrade the web console, as follows:

To set the registry to enable or disable SSL on the web console

  1. Logon on to the web console with an account that has local administrator rights, and on the desktop, click Start, and then click Run.

  2. Type regedit, and then click OK. The Registry Editor starts.

    CautionCaution
    Incorrectly editing the registry can severely damage your system. Before you make changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data that is on the computer.

  3. Navigate to the HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\System Center Operations Manager\12\Setup\WebConsole\ key.

  4. To enable SSL, set the following:

    HTTP_GET_ENABLED=0

    BINDING_CONFIGURATION=DefaultHttpsBinding

  5. To disable SSL, set the following:

    HTTP_GET_ENABLED=1

    BINDING_CONFIGURATION=DefaultHttpBinding

To upgrade the web console server

  1. Log on to the computer that hosts the web console server with an Operations Manager Administrators role account for your Operations Manager management group.

  2. On the Operations Manager source 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 then click Next.

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

  5. 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.

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

  7. When the Ready to Upgrade page appears, review the upgrade summary, and then click Upgrade.

To upgrade the web console server by using the Command Prompt window

  1. Log on to the computer that hosts the web console server with an Operations Manager Administrators role account for your Operations Manager management group.

  2. Open a Command Prompt window by using the Run as Administrator option.

  3. Change the path to where the Operations Manager Setup.exe file is located, and run the following command.

    ImportantImportant
    Use the /WebConsoleUseSSL parameter only if your website has Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) activated. For a default web installation, specify Default Web Site for the /WebSiteName parameter.

    setup.exe /silent /AcceptEndUserLicenseAgreement:1 /upgrade 
    /WebsiteName: "<WebSiteName>" [/WebConsoleUseSSL]
    /WebConsoleAuthorizationMode: [Mixed|Network]
