SCOM 1801/1807 adding new vm to existing SCOM

I have a question.

Currently we have SCOM 1807 installed. The plan is to do an upgrade to 2019 and then to 2022.

However, the VM where it is installed has a 2012 R2 OS and we are currently in the process of decommisioning all our 2012 R2 VMs. We do not want to do an in-place OS and/or SCOM upgrade.

So what we did is create a new VM with 2022 Standard OS.

Then we want to install 1801/1807 on it. Then do an in-place SCOM upgrade from 1807 to 2019. This is possible looking at the instructions from both Kevin Holman and Prajwal Desai.



We want to add this new 2022 VM as a management server to the current SCOM 1807 installation.

But we now get stuck at the step to install SCOM 1801/1807 on the new 2022 VM. During the installation we select the following:


After that we fill in the correct information for [servername][instance name]:User's image

But when the setup is done searching we get the error below and no DB's are shown.

User's image

And that is weird since the DB's do exist.. but the setup just can't find it.

When you go to the previous step and select "Create the first ... management group", fill in the same information, it will search for it and then comes back with an error that it already exists.. so reaching the SQL VM is no problem..

Any ideas why this is not working?

Thank you.

    According to the official documentation, Windows Server 2022 only supports OM 2022.

    What is your SQL server versions and service pack levels?
