In OM2007R2, we have introduced two new complex deployment scenarios we did not support in OM2007SP1. I am going to take a few minutes here and outline the new scenarios and procedures.
In OM2007SP1, clustering a Root Management Server (RMS) was only supported during the initial deployment of a management group. If you were to install a clustered RMS you needed to do this as the very first thing after deploying the first management server. If you later decided to cluster RMS (after you have deployed agents) the ManagementServerConfigTool would detect every Health Service in the management group and add them to the RMS cluster in the Operational Database. Basically, leaving your management group in a broken state. At this point,you would be forced to restore from backup.
In OM2007R2, we have made some changes to the ManagementServerConfigTool to support adding a new RMS cluster to an existing management group.
What we have done here is added two new management server to the management group, setup the RMS cluster group, and ran our ManagementServerConfigTool with the “InstallCluster” switch.
Note: Go here for detailed instructions on creating the RMS cluster group.Note 2: If OM Reporting is installed to redirect it to the new RMS cluster see the following article - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc540401.aspx
A Few things to note:
If your current RMS OMSDK or OMCFG account is “Local System” you will need to switch to using a domain account before proceeding with adding the RMS Cluster.
On the new server hosting the OperationsManager database, add the correct permission for the login of the root management server on which the SDK Account is running, as follows:
Before you can use discovery, you must restart the following services: System Center Data Access, System Center Management Configuration, and System Center Management Services. You might also need to restart the following services: SQL Server and SQL Server Agent.
Below I have highlighted some of the most common unsupported scenarios. If your scenario does not match the one highlighted above it is not supported.
In OM2007R2, we are supporting a new installation of OM on SQL 2008 as well as upgrading your SQL 2005 Server to SQL Server 2008.
