How can I setup Operations Manager 2007 - Part 1


This guide is aimed at people who want to install Operations Manager 2007 and to help them set it up in a Lab Environment. This guide assumes that you will be running all the services required on one box (otherwise known as a Single Server, Single Management Group scenario).


In addition, This guide assumes that you have an Active Directory already setup and functioning (Step 1 of this guide will show you how to do that), you must have installed a Windows 2008 server for this SCOM 2007 installation and joined it to the domain, you can partition that server as C:\ 30gb for Operating System and the remaining space for D:\ for Applications.


Log on to the Domain Controller with Domain Admin permissions, start up Active Directory Users and Computers (or dsa.msc from the run command).


Step 1. Add the following new user:


Right click on Users and choose New User




Add a user called OpsMgrMSAA with the Full Name OpsMgr Management Server Action Account




Enter a password and uncheck "User must change password at next logon", click Next







Step 2. add Additional users


Now repeat the above for the following users:


OpsMgrSDK with the Full Name OpsMgr SDK and Configuration Account


OpsMgrDWWAA with the Full Name OpsMgr Data Warehouse Write Action Account


OpsMgrDRA with the Full Name OpsMgr Data Reader Account



Step 3. create a new Global Security Group in AD


Right click on Users, and choose New Group




For Group Name use OpsMgr Administrators and for group name (pre/windows 200) use OpsMgrAdmins




Add the OpsMgr Administrators security Group to the Local Administrators Group on your SCOM Server





For further reading review this Technet page about Account Information


In addition to the above Active Directory Accounts, I also create two additional ones


da-opsmgr which is a Domain User and Domain Admin

sa-opsmgr which is a Domain User and member of the OpsMgr Administrators Security Group (thereby getting local admin access to the SCOM server).


Unless otherwise mentioned login to your SCOM server from now on as the sa-opsmgr user.


Continue on to Part 2. Install IIS and required role services
