SCOM 2012 RTM wont upgrade to SP1

Filed under: System Centre — hayesjupe @ 4:20 pm

When upgrading a clients SCOM 2012 to SCOM 2012 SP1, I was getting the incredibly frustrating error

“Host not found”, followed by


A bunch of googling came up with info that didn’t help resolve the issue….

The event logs were fine…. so, due to the error “host not found” – I put wireshark on there, to try and find which host was “not found”

Turns out, who-ever installed SCOM 2012 (and made a bit of a mess of it) had upgraded from 2007 – and the old SDK server was still in the registry under 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\System Center Operations Manager\12\Reporting\DefaultSDKServiceMachine

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Reporting\DefaultSDKServiceMachine

Since the old SCOM server was long gone, I had nothing to lose, so I updated the values to be the current SCOM server – and away we went.

Simple fix – took a while to find.
