System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 Upgrade Sequencing

If you have deployed any number of System Center 2012 products into your environment and are thinking of upgrading to Service Pack 1 (SP1) any time soon, then it is really important that you upgrade your System Center 2012 products in a particular sequence and that each of the products have first been updated to at least Update Rollup 2 (Cumulative Update 2).

The following list is the recommended upgrade sequence that should be followed for System Center 2012 SP1:

  1. Orchestrator
  2. Service Manager
  3. Data Protection Manager
  4. Operations Manager
  5. Configuration Manager
  6. Virtual Machine Manager
  7. App Controller
Microsoft has recently released an on-line TechNet article that explains this sequence in detail and it's a must-read before you go ahead and deploy SP1.

  1. MS came out with new ISO's that include SP1 as part of the ISO. Can I upgrade my DPM install using the new ISO?
