How to: Installing SCOM 2007 on Windows 2003 Server

In this post we’re going to install Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007. Because it’s a testenvironment, we’re going to install all the services on one virtual server.
I’m using a server with Microsoft Windows 2003 Server R2 Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 2.

First off all install the following prerequisites:

– Windows Powershell 1.0
– .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1
– IIS (Internet Information Services
– ASP.NET 2.0
– COM+ components

After this is all done, we can install Microsoft SQL 2005 server for the SCOM database.*
*(Note! When you have more than ten SCOM agents, it’s recommended that you install a dedicated Microsoft SQL 2005 server)

sql_04    sql_05    sql_06

sql_07    sql_08    sql_09

sql_10    sql_11    sql_12

Now Microsoft SQL 2005 server SP2 is installed succesfully, we’re going to prepare our Active Directory for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007.

Create two new user account in your Active Directory. These users can be used for the following tasks:
(OpsMgr-SAA, Server Action Account) to gather operational data from providers, to run responses, and to perform actions such as installing and uninstalling agents on managed comptuers.
Make this user member of the Domain Admins Security Group.
(OpsMgr-SDK, SC Database Server) to logon to the System Center Database Server.
Make this user member of the Local Adminstrators Security Group on the SCOM SQL server*
*(Note! in this example not nessecary because there’s only one server for all the services.)

Create also a Security Group in your Active Directory for managing the System Center Operations Manager Environment.
(OpsMgr-Admins,
for managing the SCOM environment)
This group has full permissions to manage within a Management Group.

Now we can install System Center Operations Manager.
