Hi, I am interested in whether someone has experience in upgrading to SCOM 2016 and the newest version of Squaredup(V3) from SCOM 2012 R2 and SquaredUp 2.3. I want to do this as smoothly as possible and I am wondering if someone has already done this and whether they ran into any problems.

Any input is highly appreciated.

    • Bear in mind there is no direct upgrade path from 2.3 to 3, I would envisage you would upgrade to SCOM 2016 1st (make sure your SCOM 2012R2 is patched up to date 1st) and then migrate your 2.3 dashboards to your new v3 install.
    • True, what about the SCOM upgrade to 2016? Should I expect any problems? Is V3 fully compatible with SCOM 2016?
    • Yes, v3 is fully compatible with SCOM 2016. Assuming you're a Squared Up customer, if you drop them a line they'll issue you a special license with which you can test v3 before migrating your production instance (from v2 to v3)
    • Thank you, I will do just that.
    • Also look out so your Operating System (Management servers) are compatibel with SCOM 2016. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center-docs/system-requirements/operating-systems-compatibility
