Migrating subscriptions, subscribers and channels from SCOM 2012 R2 to SCOM 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am setting up a SCOM 2016 PoC environment and I am attempting to create it to be as close to our production 2012 R2 environment as possible. I have created a number of DEV environments in the past using 2012 R2 and when I import the MPs that I export from our live environment I get all of the subscriptions, subscribers and channels come across but in my 2016 PoC these have not been created.

    Have I missed the specific MP that contains these items or are the items exported from 2012 R2 not compatible with the 2016 architecture?

    Have you tried to build another SCOM 2016 then try to migrate them from 2016 to 2016 ?

  • What I am saying is that when creating new SCOM 2012 R2 environments it was enough to import the Management Packs exported from our production system in order to have all of the subscriptions populate in the new system, in my new 2016 setup this did not occur.  I wanted to know whether there was another way other than the export/import using PowerShell. 

    I thought that one of the links had the answer "All notification detail in OpsMgr is stored in the ‘Notifications Internal Library’ management pack." but I imported that MP from the 2012 R2 system and it did not bring the notification details with it.

  • Actually it did work, it just took about 10 minutes for the items to populate. All sorted :-)
