I saw today that I wrote last post almost a month ago. It took me almost a month to go back to what I started to do. Installing SCOM 2016. In last blog post we prepared SQL server for installation. Yesterday I was checking on event logs for SQL, and there was some errors. So please install CU 4 for SQL 2016 RTM to suppress these errors.
Lets continue. I want to prepare for SCOM installation. What I need to install beforehand? All prerequisites you can find on TechNet System Center guide page but I will simple it up.
First thing is Management server. You will install SCOM console there and you need to install the Report Viewer controls to any server that will receive a SCOM console. There is a prereq for the Report View controls which is the “Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2014” (ENU\x64\SQLSysClrTypes.msi) available here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42295.
Install that first and after that install Report Viewer.
So we finish prereq one. Lets go prereq two. To install web console on any server you will need to install IIS with all of this options.
Internet Information Services: IIS 7.5 and later versions, with the IIS Management Console and the following role services installed:
- Static Content
- Default Document
- Directory Browsing
- HTTP Errors
- HTTP Logging
- Request Monitor
- Request Filtering
- Static Content Compression
- Web Server (IIS) Support
- IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility
- ASP.NET (both the 2.0 and 4.0 versions of ASP.NET are required.)
- Windows Authentication
Just run this PowerShell command any it is done.You put you path in source parameter for Windows Server OS installation source or if your computer has access to Internet you don’t need it. It is required for asp.net 2.0 activation (correct me if I am wrong)
Add-WindowsFeature NET-WCF-HTTP-Activation45,Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Metabase,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Windows-Auth -Restart -Source D:\sources\sxs
Restart computer after this. Recommended by Kevin Holman. After that you will probably get new updates so update computer before continuing.
Lets prepare service accounts. You need next accounts
- Local System SCOM Server Action Account (you can create domain one, I use local system)
- DOMAIN\scomcdas SCOM Config and Data Access Account
- DOMAIN\scomdwreader SCOM Data warehouse Reader Account
- DOMAIN\scomdwriter SCOM Data warehouse Write Account
- DOMAIN\scomsql SQL Service Account
- DOMAIN\ScomAdmins SCOM Administrators security group
Add scomcdas, scomdwreader,scomdwriter and Scom server action account if you created domain one to ScomAdmins group. Add the “SCOMAdmins” domain global group to the Local Administrators group on each server.
This is basic prerequisites for running setup of SCOM. See you tomorrow I hope.
