Assuming you are running a SCOM 2012R2 (UR11) environment, this post will be exactly what you need to have a successful SCOM 2012 R2 to SCOM 2016 upgrade. Remember to install the license key before the 120 days are up.After you have downloaded the RTM image file, as you may have noticed, it is not an ISO file. Before moving on with the install, I stopped the following SCOM services on all of the Management Servers: Now we can run the installer (Run As Administrator or, SCOM Data Access/SDK account) Sweet! For me, the upgrade took around 50 minutes for the first Management Server.. Let’s launch the console just to make sure we are in all working order.

Note: The SQL Client Tools package contains tools such as SQL Server Management Studio, Profiler, Database Engine Tuning Advisor, SQL Server Power Shell and several other management tools.SQL Server Management Studio now has a dedicated download page that’s updated each month with the latest version of the SQL Client Tools.This enables the engineering team to do data-driven improvements in each monthly update in the areas that will help customers the most.As the information is anonymous, customers should still use Connect or CSS to address specific issues they may be having with the tools.Note: The Sandbox is not available for the On-Demand option.

If you call Microsoft Volume License support, they will tell you that the keys are imbedded in the product (which is true) and that they can not give you the key information (which may or may not be true, depending on who you’re talking to).
Side note: I asked the VLSC support specialist why there’s a place to enter the key in SQL if the Volume License version of SQL doesn’t have a key.
Those channels will continue to be the way to get personalized help and support. EXE will install SSMS and other client tools as well as all the required dependencies for the tools.
Yes, the client tools package that includes SSMS will be available as a self-contained . This package can be saved locally and subsequently executed on machines not directly connected to the internet.
