R2: OpsMgr Service Names

22-09-2009 Update: Travis Wright (Senior Program Manager Lead on the Service Manager product development team) has left a comment referring to a blogposting of himself about the WHY behind the name change of these services. Check it out here. Thanks Travis for your feedback.

Cameron Fuller has already posted about it. But since I do get many questions about it, I have decided to post it as well in order to give it a bit more exposure.

With R2 the OpsMgr service names have been changed. This is pure cosmetically since the underlying processes are still the same. The table in this posting displays the name changes.

OpsMgr – RTM/SP1 OpsMgr R2
OpsMgr SDK Service System Center Data Access
OpsMgr Health Service System Center Management
OpsMgr Config Service System Center Management Configuration
