Using System Center Operations Manager 2007 to monitor your MOSS farm – part 1: installation

Posted by Christian Dam on January 11, 2008


Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 is a great tool to monitor your MOSS environments. In this 2 part blog, I will describe how to install and configure SCOM2007 to monitor a MOSS 2007 farm.

Below is a quick’n dirty installation and configuration guide on how you install and configure System Center Operations Manager 2007 in to two-tier setup using a database server and a server for OpsManager. I assume you already have a database server available.

First we must install the OpsManager database on the database server:

  1. Start the installation, select Install Operations Manager 2007 and click Next
  2. Accept the Licence Agreement and click Next
  3. Enter User Name and Organisation, License Key and click Next 
  4. Leave the database option selected and deselect everything else. Click Next
  5. Verify that the preresuisites requirements are met and click Next
  6. Specify the Management Group name and configure your MOM administrators. Click Next
  7. Select the database instance and click Next
  8. Specify the database specific information and click Next
  9. Make your choice about reporting to Microsoft and click Next
  10. Finally, click Install
  11. Click Finish

That’s it for the database part. Let’s move on to the Operations Manager server:

  1. Install Windows Server 2003 R2
  2. Install IIS, ASP.Net, .Net Framework 2.0 and 3.0
  3. Install PowerShell 
  4. Update the server with the respective updates and service packs
  5. Make sure ASP.Net 2.0 is registered with IIS. From a command prompt do the following
    • cd \windows\microsoft .Net\Framework\v2.0.50727
    • if aspnet_regiis /lv doen’t list v2.0.50727 as the valid root, run aspnet_regiis /i command to install ASP.Net 2.0

We are now ready to install System Center Operations Manager 

  1. Start the installation, select Install Operations Manager 2007 and click Next
  2. Accept the Licence Agreement and click Next
  3. Enter User Name and Organisation, License Key and click Next 
  4. We are using a diffenrent database server to host the OpsManager databasem so de-select the database-option and keep the other options selected. Click Next
  5. Verify that the preresuisites requirements are met and click Next
  6.  Enter the database server, database name and port number. Click Next
  7. Enter the Server Action Account information and click Next
  8.  Did you you the domain admin account? Well, then you must click Next to bypass the warning … like me …
  9.  Enter the SDK and Config account information and click Next
  10. Make you Web Console Authentication choice and click Next 
  11.  Join the Customer Experience Improvement Program if you feel like it and click Next
  12.  Finally we are ready to click Install
  13. Leave Start the Console checked and click Finish
