Key Concepts Guide is now available

I just put the finishing touches on the Key Concepts guide and it is posted on the download center, here:

It includes the following topics:

  • Overview of model-based design
  • Service models and understanding relationships
  • Health models
  • How Operations Manager implements models
  • Discovery
  • Changes between 2005 and 2007
  • Customizing the out-of-the-box models

We typically post documents in the doc format, but we are trying out two additional formats (pdf and xps). Let us know if you prefer one of these formats; we’ll eventually be making a decision about which of the formats to regularly ship. You can reach our documentation team at momdocs at
