Chapter 3: Installing Microsoft Operations Manager 2005


One of the biggest mistakes made in the IT industry is not reading the manual. Everyone hates to read installation instructions and documentation. Failure to understand a product properly before installation often leads to ripping it out and starting all over again. Having to start over often leads to standing up in meetings and explaining why the project is behind schedule and over budget, too. The analogy of carpenters measuring twice and cutting once applies here. Cutting without properly measuring results in improper fits and waste. In this chapter, we cover the following aspects of installing MOM 2005:

  • Planning concerns and requirements

  • Hardware and software prerequisites for each installed component

  • Security concerns and issues

  • Installation steps and things to note during the installation and configuration

The goal of this chapter is to help you understand the requirements for installing MOM and how to install it right the first time. For those that choose not to read this chapter, it should prove helpful with the second installation.
