SCOM 2016 UR1 installation Step by Step

Soon after the release of System Center Operations Manager 2016, Microsoft System Center / Operations Manager development team has released the Update Rollup 1 for Operations Manger 2016.

Though there’s nothing mentioned about the fix this Update Rollup includes however it’s recommended to apply this Update Rollup after you install or upgrade your SCOM environment to Operations Manager 2016.

Note: It’s recommended that you apply the Update Rollup 1 for SCOM 2016 after 24 hours of the upgrade as it may interrupt the synchronization after upgrade.

SCOM 2016 UR1 can be downloaded from Microsoft Update Catalog site.

Follow same process to update other Management Servers.

Apply SQL scripts 

On Management Server navigate to following path where you will find the SQL Script update_rollup_mom_db.sql to update OperationsManager database:

%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\Operations Manager\Server\SQL Script for Update Rollups


1: Copy the update_rollup_mom_db.sql file on OpsMgr DB server.

2: Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to OpsMgr DB.

3: Open the update_rollup_mom_db.sql file.

4: Select OperationsManager DB from Available Databases dropdown menu.

5: Execute the query.


The query may take considerable amount of time based upon your SCOM environment.


Make sure the query completes successfully. If you get Error, re-run the query.

You might need to stop below services on your all Management Servers so the query may complete successfully:

  • Microsoft Monitoring Agent
  • System Center Data Access Service
  • System Center Management Configuration

Manually update Management Packs 

On Management Server, navigate to following path where you will find the Management Pack files which need to be imported trough Operations Console.

%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\Operations Manager\Server\Management Packs for Update Rollups

You will find 8 Management Pack files here, however make sure you import only those which you need.


1: Open Operations Console.

2: Click on Installed Management Packs under Administration tab.

3: Click on Import Management Packs.


4: Click on Add button.

5: Navigate to Management Packs for Update Rollups folder.

6: Select the Management Packs you need to update and click Open button.


7: Review the import list and click Install button.


The Management Pack import should take few minutes to complete.

Once all the Management Packs are imported, click Close button.


Update Agents 

The Agents which were not manually installed should be placed into Pending Management option under Operations Manager console.

Approve all the agents placed under Pending Management.


SCOM Agents, which were manually installed, will not reflect here, hence can’t be upgraded through SCOM console. You need to install SCOM 2016 agent update on those servers manually.

The Agent update file can be found under below path:

%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\amd64 

File Name: KB3190029-amd64-Agent


That’s it.
