  2. In the Operations console, in the navigation pane, click the Administration button.

    Note

    When you run the Operations console on a computer that is not a management server, the Connect To Server dialog box appears. In the Server name text box, type the name of the Operations Manager management server to which you want to connect.

  3. In the Administration pane, under Notifications, click Subscriptions.

  4. n the Actions pane, click Enable for each subscription listed that was enabled prior to performing the upgrade.

Restart or re-enable the connector services

Refer to third-party documentation for any installed connectors to determine if the connectors are supported for System Center Operations Manager. If you stopped a connector for any reason during upgrade, restart the service.

To restart a connector service

  1. Open the Services MMC snap-in. Click Start, and then type services.msc in the Start Search box.
  2. In the Name column, right-click the connector that you want to restart, and then click Start.

Re-Enable Audit Collection Services

If you had Audit Collection Services (ACS) enabled for an agent prior to upgrade, it was disabled as part of the agent upgrade process. Re-enable ACS as appropriate.

Verify that the upgrade was successful

Perform the following tasks to verify that the upgrade was successful.

  • Check the health state of the management and gateway servers, and agents in the Health Service Watcher state view. In the Administration workspace of the Operations console, ensure that the management and gateway servers, and agents are healthy. In the Monitoring workspace, check if there are any alerts related to the management group health.
  • Review the event logs of all the management servers for new errors. Sort alerts by the last-modified column to review the new alerts.
  • Monitor CPU and memory utilization, and disk I/O on your database servers to ensure that they are functioning normally.
  • If the Reporting feature is installed, click Reporting, and then run a generic performance report to ensure that Reporting is functioning correctly.
