System Center 2012 Operations Manager SP1 - Introduction

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


Inspired by the awesome SCCM 2012 guides, which were extremely helpful, and based on the numerous posts requesting guides on SCOM, I have decided to contribute to this site and create some.


As an FYI on my background, I hold many certifications, and have been working with System Center for several years. Although that may not seem like a lot, I am a firm believer in the number of years don't fully represent the depth of experience.


In my example, I worked with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, and specialized with SCOM. In fact it is the ONLY thing that I worked on for several years. Originally when I joined the Operations team, I had to re-build their SCOM environment from the ground up! It was such a mess, that even having Microsoft remote it to assist in fixing all the issues, agreed. As a testimony to my skill-set with SCOM, I rebuilt the entire environment in 2 weeks, when it took the original consultants 6 months! But, enough of my background, if you are interested in further details, please feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile: http://ca.linkedin.com/in/adinermie/.


So to start, my home lab is running Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V 3.0. I have a VM prepared (with Server 2012 as well); and have one VM for each of the System Center products. I will use my lab to write about the various System Center products.


So enough of my rambling, let's start working with SCOM 2012 SP1.


First up, pre-reqs and installation (stay tuned).

Hello everyone,


Sorry for the delay, I've been really busy lately (starting a new job, etc.). I have the first part of the guide I am creating ready to post, I'm just having some issues with including the images. If anyone can educate me on how to include the images, so that you don't have a bunch of just text to look at, I'll be able to post the 'Installation Part A' for everyone.


UPDATE: In the interest of providing at least something to assist everyone, I have posted the first part on my own Wordpress blog, which is here: http://adinermie.wordpress.com/


UPDATE 2: Per request, I have posted within these forums, the first part of the guide. You can find it here: http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/8582-scom-2012-sp1-in-a-lab-installation-part-a-create-the-lab-environment/.


Enjoy, and I'm open to any feedback.
