Service Manager – Requirements Overview and Base Install

I was onsite last week deploying Service Manager 2010 and after much grumbling and moaning about it during the release candidate and beta releases, I’m actually starting to like it. Yes, it is still a little rough around the edges but what I do like is that rather than throw in lots of functionality that doesn’t work (remember Operations Manager 2007 RTM!), the Service Manager team have cut down on functionality but actually tried to make sure that what is there works and is stable. And I think they’ve done a good job.

I’ll start a few posts on the installation – as usual, the official documentation is really the place to look but I have taken this and tried to extract the key points and add some screen shots.

So, to start this series, the base install:
Part I – Overview of the service accounts and requirements. I can’t guarantee this is the “most” secure deployment but I have ensured that any administrator privileges handed out to service accounts are only ever local on a Service Manager core server.
Part II – Install Service Manager Management Server

Part III – Install Service Manager Data Warehouse Management Server

    Good to see you blogging on SCSM Graham! Glad you are starting to like it. See – we did learn a thing or two from SCOM 2007 RTM. : )

    Cheers!
