For system administrators, ensuring that all Windows servers are performing optimally is a tall order. The larger the enterprise, the greater the chance for irritating, time-consuming configuration problems. Sometimes, you can determine the root cause of the problem yourself-but that's only if you're lucky.

With Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM), the diagnosis is done for you. MOM monitors server operations and automatically notifies you of problems by sending an immediate alert to your console, email address, or pager. To help you better understand how MOM works, O'Reilly presents Essential Microsoft Operations Manager.

The goal of this comprehensive tutorial is to give first-time MOM administrators a solid foundation for planning, implementing, and administering MOM 2005. Author Chris Fox, a renowned MOM expert, offers the type of practical, real-world advice that you need to improve the performance of your IT infrastructure.

After taking you through the entire process of setting up MOM on the network, the book moves on to more advanced administration issues. It carefully instructs you how to program and automate MOM and the agents that reside on the servers themselves. You'll also learn how to manage the scripts that determine which server agents are relevant to report.

By capturing system data, intelligently analyzing it, and then notifying you with a suggested course of action, MOM makes extinguishing fires a breeze. And now, thanks toEssential Microsoft Operations Manager, learning how to use MOM is a breeze, too.

Review of Microsoft Operations Manager 2005

By Brisbane Infrastructure Group

from Brisbane

Comments about oreilly Essential Microsoft Operations Manager:

Good for someone new to MOM and starting from scratch. Covers all the basics from planning thru to installing & using without going too deep so will get them going quickly. Not as good for those with MOM already installed or looking for indepth coverage however that being said there's still some good bits there for advanced Users sauch as:

* Creating your own Management Packs

* Setting up MOM for SNMP & Syslog

* SQL Database & Reporting Essentials.

The main downside is that it does NOT cover installing MOM2005 with SQL 2005. Even though this has only officially become supported starting a few months ago (with the release of a few hotfixes) I would imagine many new installs would be looking to use SQL2005.
