Enable Network Discovery
The OMMGR01 server needs to have network discovery enabled prior to deploying monitoring agents.
Procedure W08-DWM.23: To enable network discovery
On OMMGR01, open the Network and Sharing Control Center console.
Turn on the network discovery function.
Deploy Monitoring Agent on Domain Member Servers
Procedure W08-DWM.24: To deploy monitoring agents on domain member servers
On one domain controller (AD01), open the Group Policy Management Editor window from the Group Policy Management Console, and then navigate to User Rights Assignment. Assign the Allow log on locally user right to the OMAction account.
Manually add the OMAction account to the local Administrators group on each server you want to manage.
Log on to OMMGR01 as FABRIKAM\OMAdmin. Run the System Center Operations Console, and then navigate to Automatic Computer Discovery.
Specify Fabrikam\Administrator as the administrator account.
Select the servers you want to manage (and have the monitoring agent installed on).
Accept the default agent installation directory. Specify the Fabrikam\OMAction account as the Agent Action account.
For more information on deploying agents, please refer to the Deploying Agents in Operations Manager 2007 in the Operations Manager 2007 Operations Guide (available at the Systems Center Operations Manager 2007 Documentation).
Unlock OMAdmin on Domain Controllers
Procedure W08-DWM.25: To unlock OMAdmin on domain controllers
On each domain controller (AD01 and AD02), open a command prompt and change directory to C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007.
Run the following command:
hslockdown [ManagementGroupName] /a fabrikam\omadmin
Deploy Monitoring Agent Manually on Servers outside the Domain
For servers that are not domain members, you must manually deploy monitoring agents on them. For more information, see Deploying Gateway Server in the Multiple Server, Single Management Group Scenario
Install and Import the Hosted Messaging and Collaboration Management Packs
Procedure W08-DWM.26: To install and import the Hosted Messaging and Collaboration management packs
Log on to OMMGR01 as Fabrikam\OMAdmin
Run HMCManagementPack.msi, which is located on the Hosted Messaging and Collaboration distribution media in the \Monitoring and Reporting folder.
Use the Operations Manager console to import the Hosted Messaging and Collaboration management pack from the C:\Program Files\System Center Management Packs\Microsoft Provisioning System Management Pack directory.
