Operations Manager 2012 Release Candidate Installation Part 2

(Please note, this is a post about OM12 RC, which could be different than RTM code.)

rc_SPLASHSCREEN

Environment

This will illustrate a three server install. Server 1 will be the first management server in the Management group. Server 2 will be the Database Server, SQL SSRS Server, web Server, and will hold the following OM12 roles, as the Web Console server and the Report server, and holding the OM12 Databases. Server 3 will be a second management server in the Management Group. This will be a three part series:

Part One will Deal with the Server 1 installation of just the management server.

Part Two will deal with the Server 2 installation of the report server and web console.

Part Three will detail installing a second Management Server to the Management Group on Server 3.

Software Requirements

Requirements for Server 2, from the TechNet OM12 RC Supported Configurations page http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh205990.aspx

Server two has SQL 2008 R2 installed with the defaults, and is hosting both the OM12 Operational Database and Data Warehouse, the Web Console and Reporting Server, so the following are all the Requirements it must pass.

Note the following database considerations for Operations Manager:

  • Operations Manager does not support hosting its databases or SQL Server Reporting Services on a 32-bit edition of SQL Server.
  • Using a different version of SQL Server for different Operations Manager features is not supported. The same version should be used for all features.
  • SQL Server collation settings for all databases must be SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS; no other collation settings are supported.
  • The SQL Server Agent service must be started, and the startup type must be set to automatic.
  • Side-by-side installation of System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Reporting and System Center 2012 – Operations Manager Reporting on the same server is not supported.
  • The db_owner role for the operational database must be a domain account. If you set the SQL Server Authentication to Mixed mode, and then try to add a local SQL Server login on the operational database, the Data Access service will not be able to start. For information about how to resolve the issue, see System Center Data Access Service Start Up Failure Due to SQL Configuration Change
  • If you plan to use the Network Monitoring features of System Center 2012 – Operations Manager, you should move the tempdb database to a separate disk that has multiple spindles. For more information, see tempdb Database.
Web Console
  • Operating System: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
  • Processor Architecture: must be x64.
  • Web browsers: Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9
  • Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5 and later versions, with the IIS Management Console and the following role services installed:
    • Static Content
    • Default Document
    • Directory Browsing
    • HTTP Errors
    • HTTP Logging
    • Request Monitor
    • Request Filtering
    • Static Content Compression
    • Web Server (IIS) Support
    • IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
    • ASP.NET
    • Windows Authentication
  • Selected website for web console: requires a configured http or https binding.WarningWarning

    Installing the web console on a computer that has SharePoint installed is not supported.

     

  • Both .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 4 are required for Setup to run. For more information, see the following documents:

noteNote

Installation of the web console requires that ISAPI and CGI Restrictions in IIS are enabled for ASP.NET 4. To enable this, select the web server in IIS Manager, and then double-click ISAPI and CGI Restrictions. Select ASP.NET v4.0.30319, and then click Allow.

ImportantImportant

You must install IIS before installing .NET Framework 4. If you installed IIS after installing .NET Framework 4, you must register ASP.NET 4.0 with IIS. Open a Command prompt window by using the Run As Administratoroption, and then run the following command:

%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -r

Operational Database
  • Disk space: The operational database must have at least 1024 MB free disk space. This is enforced at the time of database creation, and it will likely grow significantly. For information about SQL Server Planning, see Initial Installation (SQL Server 2008).
  • File system: %SYSTEMDRIVE% must be formatted with the NTFS file system.
  • Operating System: Windows Server 2008 SP2 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

  • SQL Collation: SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS.
  • SQL Server Full Text Search is required.
  • Both .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 4 are required. For more information, see the following documents:

Installation

Start the installation logged using a domain account, that has local admin on the server as well as SQL Admin rights on the SQL node. This account should also be an Administrator in Operations Manager. Setup.exe should be run using the run As admin option. Click Install!

01_splash_screen_start_click_Install

Select the Web Console, and Reporting Server, then click Next.

02_WebConsole_ReportingServer

Select installation Location, I kept the defaults and clicked next.

03_Select_Install_Location

Prerequisites passed, so Proceed with Setup by clicking Next.

04_PreRequisiteCheckOkProceedWithSetup

Specify a Management Server, so I enter Server 1’s name then click Next.

05_ManagementServerName 

Select the SQL Server Instance on which you want to host the SQL SSRS. Note, I had OM12 Beta installed on this box, and I ran into problems trying to get OM 12 RC Reporting installed. The RESETSRS.EXE utility was not able to get SQL SSRS back in order to do the OM 12 RC install, so I verified that I had uninstalled all the OM12 Beta software, then Removed SQL SSRS from the box, then removed IIS, then rebooted, and added IIS back, then installed SQL SSRS. After all that was done, the OM12 RC Reporting install went smooth, with out errors on the prerequisite checker.

06_SQLSErverinstanceForReportingServices

Specify a Web Site for Use with the Web Console. i kept the Defaults and clicked Next.

07_specify_website_for_webconsole

Select an Authentication Mode for use with the Web Console, then click Next.

Installation Summary Screen, it is always a good idea to review this as a sanity check before clicking install.

11_InstallationSummary

Installation Progress bar. I’m glad that Microsoft has added more status messages to this screen than just having a progress bar!

12_installProgress

Once Setup Is complete you will get the screen below. Click close to complete the install.
