When you upgrade a single-server System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 environment to System Center 2012 – Operations Manager, you run the upgrade on all features on a single server. If a data warehouse does not already exist, it is created during the upgrade process because having a data warehouse is a requirement for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager. You upgrade any manually installed agents before you run upgrade on the management group. If you installed agents by using the Computer and Device Management Wizard (the Discovery wizard), you can upgrade these agents after you upgrade the management group by using the Operations Manager Operations console.
The following topics describe how to perform the necessary steps to upgrade a single-server management group that has a supported configuration for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager. For more information, see Supported Configurations for System Center 2012 - Operations Manager.
