System Center 2012 vs System Center 2007

Hi, I am on to my next project.  So, I was about to finish up my deployment of System Center Operations Manager 2007 when I decided to look further into System Center 2012, which I believe is out or about to be released.

Anyways, I was wondering has anyone had time to evaluate SC 2012?  How does it compare to 2007?  Do I need to uninstall SCOM 2007 from my environment to setup SCOM 2012?

I only have SCOM 2007 monitoring a few of my servers, so it isn't a big deal, at least, I hope not, to remove it from my current environment.

So, just was curious if it is worth the upgrade.


Thanks in advance.

I have never actually installed SCOM, but I imagine that you can upgrade. You can upgrade from 2007 R2.

SCOM 2012 has been released to volume license customers. You can get it at http://licensing.microsoft.com . I haven't downloaded it yet.

OK, I already have downloaded it, since we have a MS Campus Agreement (MVLS).  However, i am wondering is it worth the hassle to upgrade my SCOM 2007 to 2012 now & or how do you do a migration to SCOM 2012 from 2007?  Or do you have to just scrap the SCOM 2007 and start a fresh rebuild to SCOM 2012?


Thanks again.
