This course will provide delegates with an understanding of the Operations Manager 2012 R2 Architecture, features and how to administer and maintain Operations Manager 2012 R2.

This class begins with an introduction to Operations Manager 2012 R2 followed by a detailed architectural discussion that explains how to design your Operations Manager 2012 R2 environment. You will then perform an advanced installation of Operations Manager 2012 R2 and explore agent deployment. Once the setup is complete you will perform other recommended post installation configurations. From here, we turn our attention to overrides, diagnostics and recoveries, notification configuration, and the Operations Manager Shell.

Next we spend some time on the basics and best practices around alert tuning which is the process that helps to reduce the alert 'noise' within your organization. Next, we look at how to address a number of common monitoring requests within the Operations Console to allow you to confidently say 'Sure, we can monitor that.' and then go off and create the required rules or monitors. Finally, we wrap up the class with a look at some of the more common 3rd party add-ons to provide you with an understanding of how to integrate SCOM into your environment as opposed to having it operate in isolation.
