Watch the attached video on how to cluster a Root Management Server and promote a Management Server to take the role of a Root Management Server
Starr and Myself did a talk at MMS 2008 in Las Vegas on how to build a resilient Operations Manager 2007 infrastructure. In this talk we demonstrated how to move the Operations Database, promote a management server to take the role of the Root Management Server (RMS) and detailed steps on how to cluster the Root Management Server on a 2 node Active-Passive cluster. The attached video is a recording of the session we did at MMS 2008 and I think the demo’s shown will be very valuable for anyone who is trying out MS promotion or trying to cluster the Root Management Server. The demo’s also show how to configure Management Server failover using Active Directory integration.
