SCOM Server Migration

Anchal gupta 21 Reputation points

Hi Everyone,

We have a urgent request to migrate our current SCOM 2012 R2 infra from from one datacenter to another datacenter.

Servers which will be migrated includes MS, DB and DW servers. My only concern is for the physical servers which we are using for DB and DW, as they are configured with failover cluster and SQL always ON.

Please help us with the approach for these physical servers migration and what necessary measures we should take for proper migration.

Note: Our migration team will only migrate the server AS IS, but since the servers are physical then we have to prepare the migration strategy and give it to them.

Thanks is advance!

    @Anchal gupta , From your description, It seems we want to migrate Operations Manager databases from one SQL cluster to another. If there's any misunderstanding, please let us know.

    Based on my research, I find an article list the steps to do this. We can refer to it:
    Note: Non-microsoft link, just for the reference.

    Meanwhile, for SCOM 2012 R2, if we want to migrate to the latest version, we can firstly migrate to SCOM 2016 then to 2019. Here is a blog from Kevin for the reference:
