Component Coexistence for System Center 2012 R2

 

Updated: May 13, 2016

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2

Some of the System Center 2012 R2 components will not function properly if other components have been installed on the same computer. None of the following four components can exist on the same computer with each other:

  • DPM Management Server

  • Operations Manager Management Server

  • Service Manager Management Server

  • Service Manager Data Warehouse Management Server

In addition, the Configuration Manager and Virtual Machine Manager databases cannot be installed on the same computer.

Any of the remaining System Center 2012 components, App Controller, Orchestrator, and VMM can coexist with each other and with the four components in the previous list. Therefore, four computers is the minimum number of computers that you will need to deploy all of the System Center 2012 R2 components.

Don’t install System Center components, other than agents, on servers running Hyper-V. You can install System Center components in virtual machines.

The information presented here does not apply to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. For those system requirements, see Supported Configurations for Configuration Manager.
