Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 Unleashed provides a comprehensive guide to Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005. MOM is a tool that helps implement operations management, but it is not a piece of software that you can simply install and instantly have working.


This book provides reference material that will guide you through the steps to design, deploy, and configure MOM within your environment. You learn how to tune your MOM environment and tackle common challenges, such as managing your Microsoft operating systems, directory services, messaging platforms, and databases. Inside you will find comprehensive information on how to develop your own reports and management packs for your MOM environment as well as practical real-world examples, based on hands-on MOM experience.
