The Microsoft Operations Manager 2007 Security Hardening Guide is designed to provide you with essential information about how to further protect, or harden, your Operations Manager 2007 environment in conjunction with the Security Configuration Wizard (SCW). SCW is an attack-surface reduction tool for products running the Windows Server 2003 operating systems with Service Pack 1, the Windows Server 2003 operating systems with Service Pack 2, and the Windows Server 2003 R2 operating systems.
In addition to practical, hands-on configuration recommendations, this guide includes information about how to upgrade an agent that have been locked down, how to customize port numbers that have been changed from their defaults, and some examples for hardening a server and an agent. Although most server administrators can benefit from reading this guide, it is designed to produce maximum benefits for administrators responsible for Operations Manager 2007 security. The System Center Operations Manager 2007 SCW Roles and Security Hardening Guide for Windows Server 2003 is available at
