If you plan to manage a small number of Windows-based computers, you can usually accomplish this by deploying all Operations Manager 2007 server components on a single computer that is appropriately sized and configured. If later you need to manage additional Windows-based computers, or devices and computers not running Windows, you can deploy additional management servers on other computers for the same management group. A management group is a logical grouping of Operations Manager components, such as management servers, and the objects they manage, such as Exchange servers.
For information about the deployment phases for Operations Manager 2007, see Deployment Phases for Operations Manager 2007.
