SCOM 2007 Web Console and Reporting Server Scale-Out Deployment

Posted by rburri on February, 18 2009

Scaling-out Operations Manager Web Interfaces

Currently there are several documented ways to install Operations Manager 2007 to fulfill the needs of a high availability environment. Clustering Root Management Server and databases and configuring agent fail-over are options covered in the product documentation.

However; there was no description about how to deploy the product’s web interfaces in a load-balanced web farm. So I wrote a guide which fills the gap by guiding through the configuration of the Web Console and the Reporting Manager web interfaces as a network load balanced web server farm. This is commonly referred to as a scale-out deployment.

When combining the traditional methods of clustering and fail-over with running Operations Manager’s web interfaces in a server farm, a redundancy throughout all components of the product’s infrastructure is achieved.

The document Scale-out deployment of Operations Manager 2007 web interfaces is available for download at the System Center Forum site.

  1. Beware that scaling out the web console is NOT an issue and known to be working fine; while for the REPORTING server, even if I am sure it works, it is currently NOT supported by the Product team http://blogs.technet.com/momteam/archive/2008/03/28/operations-manager-reporting-supported-ssrs-configurations.aspx

      Scaling out the reporting servers indeed is not supported by Microsoft. I did mention this in the instructions.
