Upgrade to Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 RTM from 2012 SP1

Upgrade to Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 RTM  from 2012 SP1

Virtual Machine Manager doesn't support in-place upgrade, another bad new is the P2V utility is not supported on  VMM 2012 R2. 

Now going over the process, it will be straight forward, as always I recommed you to have a back out plan.  

  • Uninstall SCVMM Management Server and Console 
    • Retain Database on SQL
    • Uninstall ADK 8.0 (It will require a Restart)
  • Install ADK 8.1 with the same features. 
[Note: After Install ADK8.1 you will be able to install  SCVMM 2012 R2 RTM]

Step by Step 

Uninstall VMM MS and Console 

Retain Database 


Install VMM 2012 R2 RTM 

Select the existing Database VirtualManagerDB

Now it will be upgrading the Database 

Done Enjoy ! 

Thanks for watching!
