Applies To: System Center 2012 - Operations Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager
When Operations Manager, a component of System Center 2012, is first installed, only the features of the Operations Manager infrastructure such as management servers, reporting servers, and databases are monitored. Monitoring of the infrastructure is provided by the Monitoring Pack for Operations Manager, one of the management packs that is installed with Operations Manager. You can view details for the Monitoring Pack for Operations Manager in its guide at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=226940.
After Operations Manager is installed, you must decide which objects—computers and devices—should be monitored, and which applications, features, and services should be monitored on those objects.
