What versions of SCOM can be upgraded to Operations Manager 1801?




If you would like to move your SCOM deployment on to the Semi-Annual Channel, what versions does Microsoft support moving from?

The answer is here:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/plan-system-requirements?view=sc-om-1801#supported-coexistence


There are two methods to get to SCOM 1801:

  • Migration (parallel install with coexistence)
  • In Place Upgrade

Both are supported.


System Center Operations Manager 1801 supports an in-place upgrade from the following *minimum* versions:

  • System Center 2012 R2 UR12 (or later)
  • System Center 2016 RTM (or later)


For a side by side migration, with multi-homing, we recommend that environments be on the latest Update Rollup.  So if you are doing a side by side (parallel) migration, at the time of this release, the most current update rollups are:

  • System Center Operations Manager 2012 R2 UR14
  • System Center Operations Manager 2016 UR4
