On the previous post we installed Operations Manager for SCOM01 and SCOM02. In this post we will set up Operations Manager reporting services and deploy agents to servers.
Installation of Operations Manager Reporting
Add the operations manager ISO to the database server, in this case DB01.
Log in to DB01 with the OMAA account.
Make sure the SQL server agent is running, you can check it using services.msc
Run Setup.exe, when it opens select Install.
On the options of what to install, select Reporting Server. Select Next to continue.
Keep the default path, and select next.
The prerequisites checker will run. If you have any problems address these problems before continuing. Once done, select Next to continue.
Accept the license and select Next.
Type in the name of the management server. In this case the management server is SCOM01.Bluepalace.com Select Next to continue.
Select the SQL server instance, in this case its DB01. Select Next to continue.
On accounts to use, use the following:
On error reporting select No , and select Next.
Select whether or not you would like to update. We will select yes now, but will be using SCCM to push SQL updates later. Select next to continue.
Review the summary information and select install.
Deployment of agents to Servers
To ensure all of the virtual servers in your domain get the management agent pushed to them, make sure that you have the OMadmins account nested in the local administrators group on each server to ensure that your servers can receive the agent.
We must now deploy an agent to the SQL server.
Log into SCOM01 using OMAA account.
The default page view is shown below. Select the Administration Tab at the bottom of the page.
On the Administration tab, select Required: Configure computers and devices to manage.
This will open a new window. Keep the default selection at Windows computers. Select Next.
Select automatic discovery, select Next to continue.
Use the default account to scan active directory. Select Discover.
Select which devices you want to manage. In this case, it found the Database server and the domain controller. Keep the default Agent mode selected and select Next.
Leave the operations manager defaults on, and select Finish. The agents will now be deployed to the servers.
om agent defaults
A task progress box will open showing the status of the deployment of the agent. Once this is completed we can move on to the next post, the installation of the Management packs.
