Failed to start setup to upgrade to SCSM 2012


  • Hi,
    I'm trying to upgrade the SCSM 2010 SP1 CU3  to SCSM 2012 RC. I started by DW Management Server following the Upgrade Guide. I stopped the jobs, started setup, and  then I received the follow message:

    The management server which is currently designated to run the workflows must be upgraded before this management server can be upgraded.

    Does anybody knows what is happening?

  • ARe you ruuning the update on your DW Server first?

    Have you disabled all the job schedules and allowed time for all the jobs in the "Not started" state before running teh upgrade on the DW Server first?

    As long as you learn something new every day, the day is not wasted.

  • Did you sort this out?

    You tried restarting the System Center Management and System Center Management Configuration services?
    You don't happen to have an SCOM agent installed?

  • Hi

    I had the same issue. On the management server, check if the host file has any record to the server.  When this was removed the issue was resolved
