Work around for installing SC 2016 OM console and SC 2016 SM console on the same server

Following is the work around for installing SC 2016 OM console and SC 2016 SM console on the same server:

  1. Install SC 2016 OM console and then install SC 2016 SM console on the same server
  2. Add system environment variable DEVPATH which contains folder path of the Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Core.dll with the value “C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\Operations Manager\Console\SDK Binaries”
  3. Add following highlighted entry in the config file (C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\Operations Manager\Console\Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Monitoring.Console.exe.config)

                              <configuration>

                              ….

                             <runtime>

                            <developmentMode developerInstallation=”true” />

                            </runtime>

                            ….

                           </configuration>

  With above modifications both the consoles will co-exist on the same server.
