OpsMgr 2012 Beta First Looks

The public beta has now been released for those of you who want to test it.

Download – http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=26804 (About 1 GB and 3 MB for the zipped docs)

Microsoft site for beta – http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/en/us/om-vnext-beta.aspx

Technet Site -  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh205987.aspx

 

There are already three posts showing a simple (all components on one server) screenshot install. The big thing I am seeing from these is that there are new prerequisites which need to be checked and installed.

There is a bunch of useful information as usual from Kevin Holman

And Graham Davies (MVP) has setup a new blog to deal with OpsMgr 2012 posts – http://www.systemcentersolutions.com/2011/07/whats-new-in-scom-2012/

Some nice snippets of information.

There is a lot if useful information in the docs from the download.

  • Quick Start Guide – 62 pages
  • Deployment Guide – 104 pages
  • Operations Guide – 305 pages
  • Supported Configurations – 19 pages
  • Release notes

Plenty to read and it is needed as the requirements for SQL and Windows to install 2012 on is much higher.
