I just wanted to post a quick note to clarify support for OpsMgr on Windows Server 2012. For Operations Manager, the only version that will support monitoring Windows Server 2012 is OpsMgr 2012 (including SP1). However, it is possible to have an OpsMgr 2012 agent report to an OpsMgr 2007 R2 Management Group.
Update: Here’s a common question we get so I thought I’d add it here:
Question: Can I monitor Windows Server 2012 with an agent using my OpsMgr 2007 R2 management group?
Answer: Yes, however this is only supported by leveraging an OpsMgr 2012 agent. The OpsMgr 2012 agents are supported when connecting to an OpsMgr 2007 R2 management server or gateway in an OpsMgr 2007 R2 management group.
