How to Upgrade a Gateway Server from Operations Manager 2007 R2
After you upgrade the secondary management server, you upgrade any gateway servers. The procedure to upgrade a gateway server from System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 to System Center 2012 – Operations Manager is performed locally on the gateway server. You can then verify whether the upgrade is successful.
For more information about each upgrade path and the order in which to perform each upgrade task, see the Upgrade Path Checklists for Operations Manager.
Before you follow any of these procedures, make sure that you verify that the servers in your Operations Manager 2007 R2 management group meet the minimum supported configurations for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager. This will help you determine whether you need to add any new servers to your management group before you upgrade.
