Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Operations Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager

System Center 2012 – Operations Manager can monitor computers running Windows, UNIX, and Linux operating systems. For a list of the supported operating system versions, see Supported Configurations.

To begin monitoring, computers must be discovered. For a description of the discovery process, see “How Objects Are Discovered and Monitored” in Key Concepts.

Comprehensive monitoring requires that an agent be installed on the discovered computer. This section explains how to discover computers, install agents on discovered computers, and configure agents. It also provides instructions for uninstalling agents. For information about monitoring computers without installing an agent, see Agentless Monitoring in Operations Manager and Client Monitoring Using Agentless Exception Monitoring in Operations Manager.

For problems with discovery, see Troubleshooting Discovery in Operations Manager.
