Step by Step UR2 for System Center Operations Manager 2012 R2



even though installation is strait forward I will just give you short walkthrough. First of all, if you recently updated Operations Manger do not immediately install UR2. Leave things to cool down and after week or two, when you see everything is working fine do an update.  First thing first.  Download UR2 to some folder on your Operations Manager server. You will need to extract msp. files from cabs you downloaded.  Take your respective language you use for SCOM, and also right x86/x64 platform you use for specific roles.


After you get files this is the order you do update by roles:

◦Management server or servers
◦Gateway servers
◦Web console server role computers
◦Operations console role computers

Run all updates in admin mode. It is easiest way for me to open up command prompt in admin mode and run every msp package from there. After you install UR2 on management server it will ask you for restart. I didn’t’ do it. Afterwards I started console and operations console updates.


After updates you need to run sql script update_rollup_mom_db.sql on your  OperationsManagerDB database. You can find script under  %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server \SQL Script for Update Rollups\ on managament server. After that run UR_Datawarehouse.sql  sql script for OperationsManagerDW database found under the same path. After all these tasks I restarted management server.

Now lets import MPs. After restart you need to import next MPs from this folder: %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\Management Packs for Update Rollups

  1. ◦Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.mpb
  2. ◦Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.Internal.mpb
  3. ◦Microsoft.SystemCenter.TFSWISynchronization.mpb, which has the following dependency:(Microsoft.SystemCenter.AlertAttachment.mpb, which should be installed from the SCOM 2012 R2 RTM media )  Install this one bacause if you upgraded SCOM from 2012 SP1 there is old version of MP there
  4. ◦Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Library.mpb
  5. ◦
  6. ◦Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Component.Library.mpb

I get an error here but second time I tried it was successful.   This is known issues you will find in documentation (marked one on picture below).  Not to be confused I couldn’t found MP file no 5. I think it is documentation mistake. If anybody know different let me know.

After you do all this you need to update all agents. Usually it is done by going to Pending management in Administration and approving updates . In UR2 you could not see this because of known issue . You will need to do Repair task on all agents to update it to UR2 version like workaround. In monitoring pane whey you go to

Here is a list of known issue you can come around and its solutions:


I hope I helped you to get it right, and don’t forget to update console on your PCs. 🙂
