Written by Xaus Xavier Nadal on December 19th, 2009


We start with the part of the article 2a How to install Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 (Prerequisites)

Let's continue with the installation now that we have met all prerequisites.



click on Install Operations Manager 2007 R2.


click on Next.


We mark I accept the terms of the license agreement and click on Next.


Write the name of users and the Organzación and click on Next.


click on Next.


We define a name that will be located where the server you are installing. I advanced a bit how it works these: If we have a large company with sites need to install different types of servers 2 Operations Manager Gateway servers that will be distributed by the branch office or offices and multimaster server that will be the headquarters.

In a small business this server will be all. So I hope you've understood the reason for this name (Management Group).

In this window you can also modify the user will be the future of Operation admiinstrador Manager. Being the computer in a domain the BUILTIN \ Administrators is part of the Domain Admins So the configuration that offers default is sufficient for us.

click on Next.


Here we can choose the instance of SQL Server that will use and the port. Remember that in Windows Server 2008 layer firewall by default these remote ports so if you are modificáis port and accessing a remote SQL you will have to open the port. See the article by Installing SQL Server on Windows Server 2008 SP1 2008 R2 I explain how. (Over netsh).

click on Next.


By default these values ​​are already good, but if we click on You advanced we can modify the path to the database and log file as I always say that it is advisable to place them on different disks.

click on Next.


Here we fill in the details of a user who is able to install software on the servers that we will want to manage from Operations Manager. It is recommended that not the domain administrator but if you do not want to create an account with administrator rights on all servers and include the account in each of the servers using a GPO perhaps we would use the domain administrator.

I still say the best option is to create an account with local administrator rights but not to make a super huge document that you yourselves prefer toméis the decision. If you want me to explain how to do what I am recommending please solicitadme-what in a comment and I will do an article explaining it.

We write the data and click on Next.

When using the domain administrator account you will see this window:


click on Next.


Like the fact that we have been requested in the previous step is used to deploy the agents and collect information from servers that will administer and to run batch processes, scripts, etc. .. This account is used to update information on servers in the database of the Operations Manager. Should we use a different account with a different password as it also must be a local administrator of all the computers managed by SCOM. So you know.

NOTE: These accounts can modify the later since they will be local Windows services that we may change.

press Next.


We leave this option by default. In case you want to access the Web console from an extranet (Internet) should check the second option Using Forms Authentication but as there is the option we checked Use Windows Authentication (recommended) and click on Next.

If we agree to this server remotely we configure the firewall in Windows Server 2008 to let incoming traffic through the SSH port (443).


If you wish to send error reports to Microsoft to improve the product we make a choice Want to send error reports to Microsoft and press Next.


So if we want to participate in the program to improve the user experience we mark it and click on Next.


click on Install.


Unmarked Start the console and click on Finalize.


click on Next.


click on Next. If we were to restore you know, the other option.


Write or seek a location to securely store the encryption key and click on Next.


Write a strong password and click on Next.


click on Finish.

Well, we have installed System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2.

    hi thanks for the info
    I would like to know more about it's how:
    it works

    Good Juan Carlos Alonso, I hope the latest articles you clarify something the matter.

    As for the article I would be extremely careful with the following:
    1. - Do not install all components on one server. It is not recommended.
    * The RMS (Root Management Server) should be on a different server to the database as being in the same means that you have also installed SQL Server, and SCOM already consume enough resources to load it with SQL Server.
    * Never should install Web Consoles and Console (User Interface) in a RMS. Is strongly discouraged by Microsoft. We should never run it from there as it is affecting the whole system performance.

    2.-For both types of servers, multimaster (I understand that you mean the RMS) and Gateways, I think it is not clear (or I do not understand you well). Gateways are not required for each Branch Office. It is exactly this concept. We must differentiate between whether these Brach Offices are out of control. The Gateways are necessary if we want to monitor machines that are outside the domain of the RMS, since the communication will have to make through them using digital certificates, for which you also need a CA (Certification Authority) to issue them ... It is not immediate Gateways installation.

    Like I said, to learn how to install it right. But in a real production environment is not feasible to deploy a System Center Operations Manager with a single server.
