Updated: May 22, 2009

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

After you design, deploy, and configure your Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 environment, and as you start monitoring computers and devices in your organization, large amounts of data accumulates.

To protect your Operations Manager environment and to limit service interruption, you must develop and implement a comprehensive and effective maintenance plan. Effective ongoing maintenance of your Operations Manager environment can improve performance and minimize the chances of failure.

Ensure that your maintenance plan includes the following:

  • Regular monitoring of both software and hardware.

  • Frequent backups of databases and other critical data so that it can be later restored in case of failure.

If at any time there is an indication of a problem, it is best to respond immediately.
