Introduction to the Operations Manager Operations Administrator's Guide

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

You can use the Operations Administrator’s guide in one of two ways:

  • If you are coming to this guide having just deployed a management group for the first time, you should start at the beginning and read through the guide sequentially.

  • If you are already familiar with administering an Operations Manager 2007 management group, just go ahead to the section that you need.

The “Start Monitoring” section tells you how to start monitoring your environment. This section provides information about deploying agents, managing agents, and working with alerts. With these tasks completed, your Operations Manager 2007 implementation will be monitoring your applications and computers and providing you with actionable alerts, performance data, and other information from your environment.

The “Maintenance and Best Practices for Operations Manager” section describes ongoing tasks. This section can be used as a reference by all Operations Manager administrators for understanding general management group administration scenarios; it includes the procedures needed to support those scenarios. The information in this section includes content related to administering management servers, administering management groups, performing basic backup and restore procedures, and administering gateway servers.
