Community Day Session: Setting up & Configuring SQL Server to support your SCCM & SCOM environment

2:41 pm in Uncategorized by alkin

Kim Oppalfens and I did a session at community day together:

Setting up & Configuring SQL Server to support your SCCM & SCOM environment

System Center Configuration Manager and Operations Manager both need SQL Server. In this session we will show you what the best practices are for having a smooth running SQL server for our System Center environment. Having a good initial setup and configuration is not the only important thing, doing regular health checks on your SQL server is even more important. In this session we will discuss just about anything you need to know about setting up SQL from the SCOM or SCCM admin perspective. In this session you will learn how to work with the SQL team and set up your scom or sccm to talk with their standard SQL setup. This includes setups with remote sql servers, sql server services running as domain users, and named instances. Additionally we will talk about some SQL related configuration topics, like network libraries, firewall configuration, SQL collations, database recovery models and authentication modes.

At the end of this session you will know everything you need to know about SQL setup to support your scom or sccm environment.

Speaker: Kim Oppalfens & Alexandre Verkinderen

7:00 pm in Uncategorized by alkin

SESSION RECORDING Using System Center Operations Manager to monitor your SharePoint environment

System Center Operations Manager 2007 is THE end to end Monitoring Solution. In this session we will discuss what you, as SharePoint guys, find relevant to be monitored.
System Center Operations Manager uses a SharePoint Monitoring toolkit for monitoring the SharePoint Environment. This toolkit consists of a set of System Center Operations Manager 2007 management packs designed to help IT pros monitor their WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 and 2007 SP1 environments. These newly released packs were engineered to take advantage of SCOM 2007’s features, including new and improved reporting, additional actions, new views, and integrate IIS and SQL health rollup for a better understanding of the system-level dependencies of the SharePoint environments.
And last but not least: System Center Operations Manager can also emulate end user experience by monitoring a Web Application. We will show you how to monitor a Web Application, even if it is require credentials, and how to record a browser session.
