Error Installing System Center Operations Manager 2007 Database on SQL
Applies to: System Center Operations Manager 2007 SP1, SQL Server 2008 SP1 CU4.
We received the following error while running System Center Operations
Manager (SCOM) setup for installing SCOM2007 SP1 database on SQL Server
"Setup cannot locate the SC database.
Setup could not locate the SC database on the specified server."
Trying to make it work, we created a new database on the SQL Server 2008 to be
used by SCOM setup, and re-run SCOM setup again but received the following
"Invalid Microsoft Operations Manager Database Version.
Setup found that the Microsoft Operations Manager database version on the
specified database server is not the same as the current product version."
System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2007 SP1 will not support a new
installation of its databases onto SQL Server 2008 with SP1.
SCOM 2007 SP1 will support running its databases on SQL Server 2008 SP1 only if
you are upgrading the database servers from SQL Server 2005. You can
upgrade SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 RTM only. After you complete the
upgrade, it is recommended you install SQL Server 2008 SP1.
