In this post series I went through step by step into System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 starting from “Pre-Build”, then I continued with “Installing Operations Manager Database”, followed by another post “Installing Root Management Server”, then “Configure GPO for SCOM”, then followed by “Configuring SQL Reporting Service”, then followed by “Installing Data Warehouse Database”, then followed by “Installing Audit Collection Service” then followed by “Download and Import Management Pack”, and lately followed by “Discover Windows Computer and Deploy SCOM Agents

In this post I will go through basic configuration in System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, and the focus in this post will be on Discovering UnixLinux Servers and Deploy Agents.

Steps are as the following:





User local administrator privileges to log on to the SCOM 2007 R2 Root Management Server (SCOM) [Member of “OpsMgrAdmins” Group]. This account must also have system administrator privileges on the instance of SQL Server that will host the Operations Manager 2007 R2 database



Open a command prompt as a Local Administrator and execute the following command:

Winrm set winrm/config/client/auth @{Basic=”true”}



Open the SCOM console. Highlight Administration and Click Discovery Wizard



On the What do you want to manage page, Click and select Unix/Linux computers then Click Next

On the Define discovery criteria dialog box, do the following:

· Provide the IP address of the Unix/Linux Server

· Provide the Credentials

· Click OK



On Discovery criteria page, do the following:

On the Discovery results page, Select the computer and click Next
