SCOM 2022 Upgrade Paths | Operations Manager 2022

SCOM 2022 (Operations Manager 2022) is now released. This post lists all the possible SCOM 2022 upgrade paths that will help you to upgrade to Operations Manager 2022.

If you are running an older version of operations manager in your setup, upgrading to SCOM version 2022 will bring more new features and improvements.

You must ensure that your server meets the minimum supported configurations for System Center Operations Manager. For more information, see System Requirements for System Center Operations Manager.

SCOM 2022 supports the latest version of Windows Server, version 2022.

Some of the best new features of SCOM 2022 include:

  • Additional role-based access controls (RBAC)
  • Updated M365 monitoring
  • New and updated management packs
  • Ability to run tasks under System
  • Teams notification channel

The SCOM 2022 upgrade paths will help you decide if you can perform in-place upgrade to 2022 or you require an intermediate upgrade.

For example, if you are running SCOM 2016 in your setup, you cannot perform direct in-place upgrade to Operations Manager 2022. You have to first upgrade SCOM 2016 to 2019 and then to version 2022.
