Operations Manager 2012 Release Candidate Installation Part 3

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





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


Management Server
  • Disk space: %SYSTEMDRIVE% requires at least 1024 MB free hard disk space.
  • Server Operating System: must be Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
  • Processor Architecture: must be x64.
  • Windows PowerShell version: Windows PowerShell version 2.0.
  • Windows Remote Management: Windows Remote Management must be enabled for the management server.
  • Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) version: Microsoft Core XML Services 6.0 is required for the management server.
  • Both .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and .NET Framework 4 are required. For more information, see the following documents:


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



Server Three is just a management server, and does not need to have the management console installed. The Operations Manager 2012 Powershell module is still installed if the Management Console is not selected. So I selected the Management Server installation option and selected Next. (Not selecting the management console still give access to the PowerShell Commandlets on this server.)


Select Installation Location, I kept the default and selected Next to continue.


Prerequisites check passed, so Select Next to continue.


Specify an installation Option, I selected Add a Managmeent Server to an existing management group, then selected Next.


Configure the Operational Database, enter the SQL server name and instance name of the SQL Server, and port number if it is different than 1433. Once its connected select the drop down box for the database name to select the OperationsManager database, then click Next.


Configure Operations Manager Accounts, which in my case were all domain accounts, after entering the information I selected Next to continue.07_ConfigureOperationsManagerAccounts

Installation Summary is now ready for your review. After review the installation summary, click the install button.


The Much improved Installation Progress bar will keep you informed of the installation progress and when it completes…


The Setup is complete screen will be displayed. Click Close to end the installation.
