Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

This procedure upgrades a stand-alone Operations console to System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1), Operations Manager. Perform this procedure locally on the computer that has a stand-alone Operations console installed. You do not have to perform this procedure to upgrade Operations consoles that are installed locally on a management server.

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.

  3. On the Getting Started, System Center 2012 - Operations Manager Upgrade page, click Next.

  4. On the Getting Started, 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.

  5. On the Prerequisites page, review and address any warnings or errors that are returned by the Prerequisites checker, 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. On the Configuration, Ready To Upgrade page, click Upgrade.

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

  3. Change to the path to the Operations Manager source media, and run the following command.

To verify the Operations console upgrade

  1. On the Windows 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. Browse to the HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Setup key. If the value of the UIVersion entry is 8925 (89xx), where x is any positive integer, the Operations console was upgraded successfully.

After you have upgraded all of the stand-alone operations consoles in your management group, you can upgrade the agents. See How to Upgrade an Agent to System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager for more information.
