    • Hi Steven,
      That is correct.
      When you will look under pending managed you will see all you monitored servers there. If you approve the update and you will look in the view: Agents by Version you will see if the patch is installed.

    Hi

    My SCOM 2012 R2 environment is on Update 7, do I need to go to update 8 first before going to 9 or can I go straight to update 9?

  2. MarioTunes

    Hello and thank you for the article.
    Is it true that RU9 includes all prior released updates, except UR8 which only contains the new HTML based portal.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3134286

    I currently have SCOM 2012 R2 with NO RU, can I install RU9 and then install Self-Service Portal update or I have to install RU8 and then RU9 to get Self-Service Portal update in place before install RU9?

    Thank you

    • Hi Alex,

    Hello,
    How to upgrade manually installed agents? I have run Windows update check on one of my Windows 2003 workgroup server and it shows nothing.
    Thank you

    • Hi Alex,
      You can update the manual installed scom agent using the following steps:

      Manually-installed agents are agents that were installed manually, either by using the Command Prompt window, or by using the MOMAgent.msi Setup Wizard. Use the following procedure to upgrade these agents.

      To upgrade a manually installed Windows agent by using the Setup Wizard

      1.Log on to the computer that hosts the agent with an Operations Manager Administrators role account for your Operations Manager management group.
      2.Run Setup.exe from the Operations Manager installation media.
      3.On the first page of the Setup Wizard, click Local agent. When the Welcome to the System Center Operations Manager 2012 Agent Upgrade Wizard page opens, click Next.
      4.In the System Center Operations Manager 2012 Agent Setup dialog box, click Upgrade. The status page displays the progress of the upgrade.
      5.When the Completing the System Center Operations Manager 2012 Agent Setup Wizard page appears, click Finish.

      Hope it helps

    Thank you for reply.
    “2.Run Setup.exe from the Operations Manager installation media.” Is this Installation media where agent(gateways) was installed first time?
    Can I upgrade Gateway and than you MOMagent.msi file from updated gateway to upgrade manually installed agents.
    We have complicated environment where we monitor nontrasted domains or workgroups via Gateways (internet connection).
    Thank you
    Alex

    • Hi Alex,

      When you install update rollup 9 for system center Operations Manager 2012 SP1 there isn’t an update for the gateway.

      You can install the agent manually using the momagent.msi. And the check if the certificate chain that is needed for Systm Center Operations Manager 2012 SP1.

      Here is nice blogpost from Stefan Stranger

      Hope it helps

    I’ve applied UR9 to all mgmt. servers. My agents are not showing pending management. They still show the UR8 patch in the Agent Version view. I tried manually running the MSP on one of my agents, and that one is reporting UR9. The others won’t change to pending for the update, however.

    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Agents assigned to a management server will go into pending when that management server has a CU/SP/update applied which affects agents. It will happen only ONCE, at the time of the patch being applied there is a step in the code in which it flags these agents as pending update.
      If this does not happen – then something broke while performing the update. Most of the time the issue is with not kicking off the update from the splash screen, which was called from an elevated command prompt.

      Do you see warnings or error’s in you Event Log?

      Greetings Roel Knippen
