SCOM R2/OM12 and Linux: Some very good resources

Whenever you want to monitor cross-platform environments with SCOM R2 or OM12 it’s always good to know what you’re doing. Many of us live in Windows-only world so a good test lab comes in handy. But setting up a test lab for that can be a challenge as well.

Of course, all of us know very well how to setup a test lab running Windows VMs. But how about setting up a test lab with Linux VMs? After all, we want to test monitoring of cross-platform with SCOM R2/OM12 so those Linux VMs are a requirement. And yet, we build the test lab in order to learn more about it.

Gladly there are two highly respected fellow MVPs who posted very good stuff about just that! Pete Zerger and Cameron Fuller went to great lengths in order to explain how to setup a test lab with Linux VMs. Of course, based on Hyper-V.

Want to know more? Check out these AWESOME postings:

  1. Pete Zerger: Linux Configuration Resource Kit for System Center Administrators;
  2. Cameron Fuller: Installing and working with Unix/Linux in SCVMM 2012 RC.

All credits go to these two guys. Thanks Cameron and Pete for sharing this kind of information. Awesome!
