  • Hi,

    Do you install your management server on the same machine where your database stored? It is suggested store your scom database on another server to improve your management server performance.

    We can upgrade SCOM 2012 SP1 to SCOM 2012 R2 with SCOM 2012 R2 installation media, and for SQL database, please backup first before you move them to new server.
