Everybody who has been working with SCOM remembers his first time when he opened the console. It can be overwhelming and you just got passed the experience of designing and installing the SCOM system.
So you lean back and ask yourself… Where do we go from here. Where to start. Where to get the info needed… So many questions and so many answers to find online posted by user groups, team blogs, white papers,…
In the next series of blogs I’ll try to set up a step by step guide to get things going to a level where you can already showcase the environment and further fine tune. I’m working 2 years with SCOM 2007 so the memory of the start is still fresh but fading fast when you dig deeper in the program.
First things first. The different phases of a SCOM project and the different trap holes they bring along:
These are subject to change off course but I always keep more or less to these 6 Phases. I call it my SCOM framework.
This series will be based on a install of a SCOM 2007 R2 environment.
I’ll walk through different phases of process. If there are any suggestions down the road please do not hesitate to leave a reply or contact me via my contact info on the front page.
