SCOM 2012 SP1 management server and SCOM 2012 R2 agent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to install SCOM 2012 R2 agent and report the same to SCOM SP1 management server. I'm planning to upgrade the agent before upgrading the management server.  

    Thanks,

    RAV

  • Microsoft has a recommended/supported order in which to perform a SCOM 2012 SP1 to R2 upgrade (see link below) but it pretty goes like this :

    1. Pre-Upgrade Tasks
    2. Management Servers
    3. ACS
    4. Gateway(s)
    5. Console
    6. Agents
    7. Web Console
    8. Reporting Server
    9. Post-Upgrade Tasks

    * Steps 4 to 8 after Management Server Upgrade can occur in parallel.

  • Hi There,

    As mentioned above do it the recommended way, So you avoid unnecessary issues.

    Post Up gradation, The agents will be in pending management and you can select all and approve it in one shot, rather than doing it 1st.

  • Yes you can.  We have SCOM 2012 R2 UR4 agents reporting to our SCOM 2007 R2 CU6 environment.

  • Hi RatheshAV,

    Yes you absolutely can install SCOM 2012 R2 agents in a SCOM 2012 SP1 environment. This is fully supported. I would strongly recommend however that you install the latest update rollups for SCOM 2012 SP1 to take advantage of improvements to the Microsoft Monitoring Agent, especially if you are doing APM.
