Wanted to upgrade a very important environment and it went bad. The single Management Server (I know…) was wrecked. The upgrade rolled back leaving me with nothing: the SCOM 2012 SP1 Management Server functionality was gone. Totally.
So it was time for Disaster Recovery as described here. First I restored the SCOM 2012 SP1 SQL databases from backup. And now I did something which I shouldn’t have done: I COPIED and PASTED this section into a cmd file:
And this surprised me! And no matter what I tried I didn’t get passed it. Contacted some fellow MVP buddies and they also didn’t know what went wrong.
And guess what? Now it worked! So within ten minutes I had myself a new SCOM 2012 SP1 Management Server enabling me to reinstall the Console, Web Console and Reporting .
Back in business.
