Upgrade from DPM 2010 to DPM 2012 SP1 not supported?

    Question

  • Hi all,

    Last week I made an attempt to upgrade from DPM 2010 (with KB2615782 installed) to DPM 2012 SP1, but was met by the following error during the setup: "System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 DPM cannot be installed on the same computer as DPM 2006 or DPM 2007 or DPM 2010. Install System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 DPM on a different computer and migrate your settings using the upgrade tool".
    Is there really an upgrade tool for upgrading to DPM 2012 SP1? I've never heard of this so far.

    I solved it by first upgrading to DPM 2012 (without SP1), then installing QFE3 and at last installing DPM 2012 SP1 - then it worked. So my question is:

    Is this the only supported way of upgrading from DPM 2010 to 2012 with SP1? It's a lot of steps before getting there, and it feels strange to me that MS doesn't support an in-place upgrade.

  • Hi Amir

    The steps above is the correct way to upgrade to SP1, dont think there is a direct path.

  • Hi,

    yes, unfortunately the only way to upgrade from DPM 2010 to DPM 2012 R2 is by this steps:

    1. update DPM 2010 to DPM 2012

    2. Update DPM 2012 to DPM 2012 SP1

    3. Update DPM 2012 SP1 to DPM 2012 R2

    Ciao,
