While upgrading an System Center Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM 2007) environment running on Windows Server 2003 to System Center Operations Manager 2012 (SCOM 2012) running on Windows Server 2008R2 i ran across a problem with the install. It said:
Secure Keys are not restored on this server.
I had restored the secure key already before, but apparently it needs to be done again. So you go to your SCOM 2007 directory to use securestoragebackup.exe and restore the Secure Key. Once there you might get scared. With the upgrade of a Management Server (MS) to SCOM 2012 it deletes most of the files that SCOM 2007 uses including the securestoragebackup.exe file used for restoring the Secure Key.
What you could do is go to your SCOM 2007 Root Management Server (RMS) from the Management Server that is upgraded to SCOM 2012 and run the securestoragebackup.exe file from there! No problems running that file from the network!
Run the file and the wizard will start on your upgraded SCOM 2012 MS!
I hope this was informative for you.
