To overcome the above situations we have planned to implement the SCOM – System Center Operations Manager. This is a cross-platform data center management system for operating systems and hypervisors. It works with Microsoft Windows Server and Unix-based hosts.
This requires the Fresh high end dedicated server with Windows platform to install the SCOM services. On client side, we install the agent to connect to the server. This doesn’t require any reboot of the system. So it didn’t create any down time for the services. Once we installed all, need to authorize the agent and start the Monitoring.
