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.
I have done an in-place upgrade from SCOM UR9 to SCOM 2016 with no issues. I also upgraded SQL to 2014 as well. I used the SCOM Upgrade MP to help and the only real issues I had are with a few older agents. Just remember that you have to apply UR1 as soon as you get SCOM 2016 running.
Like Craig says make sure SCOM 2012R2 is patched up to date first, we are preparing to migrate over to 2016 soon as well so we had to do this first. I followed this guide below to go from SCOM 7.1.10226.0 to 7.1.10226.1239
For SquaredUp, we are currently running V2 & V3 concurrently on seperate VM’s having migrated all the V2 dashboards over to V3.
