System Center 2016 – Operations Manager and Operations Management Suite (OMS) 101 Series


Hi Everyone,

Back in 2010, I authored a document called Operations Manager 101 for 2007 R2. My esteemed colleague and friend Mr. Kevin Holman was kind enough to post it on his blog in order to make it easily retrievable for those that could use it.

Over time, I have received feedback on this being a useful guide for folks getting started with System Center Operations Manager. Fortunately, most of it was applicable and translated without much issue into 2012 and 2016, but with 2016 being released, I took the opportunity to update it and turn it into a web blog series.

Also, if you have System Center Operations Manager, it makes a lot of sense to check out Operations Management Suite (OMS) as these 2 products are complimentary and better together, which you can read more about at this post - https://aka.ms/together

Please find Below the following posts and look out for new ones here.

NOTE: Any comments and feedback greatly appreciated if you find these posts helpful or have any corrections / suggestions.  Cheers, Antoni
