Operations Manager 2007 Virtualization Support

Microsoft supports running all Operations Manager 2007 components in any physical or virtual environment that meets the minimum requirements that are stated in this document. There are some restrictions on virtualization functionality that can be used with Operations Manager 2007. Specifically, virtual computers running any Operations Manager 2007 component must not make use of any functionality where all activity on the virtual computer is not immediately committed to the virtual hard drive. This includes making use of point-in-time snapshots and writing changes to a temporary virtual hard drive. This is true no matter what virtualization technology is used with Operations Manager 2007.

Supported, But Not Recommended Cluster Configurations

Operations Manager 2007 supports the following clustering configurations for Operations Manager server roles, as shown in the following table; however, because of a potential performance impact on your SQL Server-based computer, these configurations are not recommended:

 

Server Role Cluster Notes

Operations Manager 2007 Operations database and Operations Manager 2007 Reporting data warehouse

Active-Active cluster where the Operations Manager Operations database is installed on one node of the cluster and the Reporting data warehouse is installed on the other node of the cluster

There might be some performance issues with SQL in this configuration.

Operations Manager Operations database, Reporting data warehouse, and audit collection database

Single Active-Passive or Active-Active cluster where all three components are on a single cluster

There might be some performance issues with SQL in this configuration.

Operations Manager Operations database and audit collection database

Single Active-Passive cluster where both components are on a single cluster

There might be some performance issues with SQL in this configuration.

Operations Manager Operations database and Reporting data warehouse

Single Active-Passive cluster where both components are on a single cluster

There might be some performance issues with SQL in this configuration.

Reporting data warehouse and audit collection database

Single Active-Passive cluster where both components are on a single cluster

There might be some performance issues with SQL in this configuration

Non-supported Cluster Configurations

The cluster configurations listed in the following table are not supported:

 

Server Role Cluster Notes

Operations Manager Operations database and root management server

Single Active-Passive where both components are on the same node of the cluster

Not supported

Operations Manager Operations database and root management server

Active-Active-Passive cluster where the Operations Manager Operations database in one active node, the root management server is on the other active node, and the passive node acts as the failover node for both.

Not supported

Operations Manager Operations database and root management server

Active-Active cluster where the Operations Manager Operations database is on one active node, the root management server is on the other active node, and they each act as the passive node for the other component.

Not supported

noteNote
Geographically dispersed clusters or geo clusters are not supported for any Operations Manager 2007 roles.

Support for Languages in Addition to English

Operations Manager supports the following languages: English, German, French, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Russian, Italian, and Portuguese (Brazil).

Supported components for different languages

If your systems run a language other than English, you can install Operations Manager 2007 for that language. You also have the option of installing English Operations Manager 2007 for your management group.

For instance, if you use a German version of Windows on all your servers, you can install German Operations Manager 2007 components for your entire management group. If you have a German version of Windows on all your servers, you can optionally install English Operations Manager 2007 components for your entire management group.

Agents for different languages

If you use an English management group, you can monitor any Windows Operating System Locale type.

If you use another language, you can monitor Windows operating systems for English and that language. For instance, if you use a German management group, you can monitor only English and German Windows operating systems.

Console for different languages

Operations Manager consoles are language independent. For example, you can use an Italian Operations Manager console to connect to a German management group.
