Installing Operations Manager 2007 on Windows Server 2008

Over the last couple of days I have had a few queries in regards to installing Operations Manager 2007 on Windows Server 2008. As you may be are this is definitely possible and on a project which I am working on at the moment this is the configuration which they require. I found it straight forward but there are a number of gotchas:

  • Everything (as you would expect) is completely locked down in terms of security
  • You must be are of key ports that OpsMgr uses as these will need configuring on the Windows Server 2008 firewall
  • Remember that all Operations Manager 2007 web components require IIS 6.0 when you are installing the IIS server role

There is quite a bit of information on the forums at the moment in regards to installing Operations Manager 2007 on Windows Server 2008. Some of the best resources I have come across are:
