Upgrading System Center Operations Manager 2007 to SP1

Posted by Christian Dam on March 6, 2008

SP1 for System Center Operations Manager has been out for a while now and I finally got around to upgrading my environment. Here’s how I did it:

  1. Close the System Center Operations Manager console should it be open
  2. Download and run the SP1 Upgrade Package. It is pretty big, though – 436MB
  3. Click OK followed by Unzip to install the package. Click OK when the the unzipping is done
  4. Select to apply SP1 to Operations Manager 2007
  5. Click Yes to install the the software update package needed
  6. Check Upgrade to Operations Manager 2007 SP1 and click Next
  7. Accept the license agreement and click Next
  8. Hit Install
  9. Click Finish when the installation completes

To check if the upgrade was successful:

  1. In the System Center Operations Manager Console click Help and then About.
    • If the version has changed from 6.0.5000.0 to 6.0.6278.0 the upgrade was OK
  2. In the SQL Server Management Studio on the database server, navigate to INSTANCE\Databases\Operations Manager\Tables
    • Right click dbo.__MOMManagementGroupInfo__ and select Open Table
    • If DBVersion has changed from 6.0.5000.0 to 6.0.6278.0 the upgrade was OK 

The agents are not upgraded automatically. Follow these steps to upgrade through the System Center Operations Manager Console:

  1. In the Administration pane, expand Device Management, and then click Pending Management
  2. In the Pending Management pane, expand Type: Agent Requires Update, right-click each agent-managed computer listed, and then click Approve
  3. In the Update Agents dialog box, enter the administrator account credentials, and then click Update. The upgrade status is displayed in the Agent Management Task Status dialog box
  4. When the upgrade is complete, click Close

Use the registry editor to verify the agent upgrade:

  1. On the computer hosting an agent, click Start, and then click Run
  2. Type regedit and then click OK
  3. Navigate to the HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Setup key. If the value of the AgentVersion entry is 6.0.6278.0 your agent upgraded successfully.

  1. we have SCOM version 6.0.5000.0 and we made installations and configurations , if we install SCOM SP1 what do you expect to happen with us?

    Thanks a lot

  2. Mahmoud,

    I don’t work with SCOM anymore, so don’t necessarily take my word for it, but I would expect you to be fine after the upgrade 🙂
