The past few months have been all about the Operations Manager 2012 beta release, which, of course, I couldn't blog about while it was still in development. Now it's live, w00t!

The documentation is available on the download site, but we also put it on our TechNet library-- Quick Start, Deployment Guide, Operations Guide, and Supported Configurations. The Quick Start is complete for beta, giving you a set of procedures to try out Operations Manager starting with a clean stand-alone install. The other documents are works in progress -- there will be a lot more content in them by the next release.

And something new...flow diagrams for upgrading an Operations Manager 2007 management group. Interesting viewing, even if you're not upgrading any time soon.

Check them out and let us know what you think. (There's an email link to the writers' team at the bottom of the flow chart. Actually, that email link is at the bottom of every page in our documentation set online for beta - we really do want to hear from you.)

What else do you do with Operations Manager that you think this type of diagram would help you with?
