Module 1: Overview and Architecture
Before implementing Operations Manager it is important you understand the key features and functionality that it provides. This will help you understand how Operations Manager can be used to solve many common problems that arise in the cloud or datacenter such as ensuring service levels are maintained, and critical line-of –business applications are available and performing at optimum levels.

Module 2: Deploying a new System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager Management Group
When planning a new deployment of Operations Manager, as well as the hardware and sizing requirements that you may have, you should also consider other factors. Factors including the security accounts that Operations Manager requires and the design of the Management Group should also be considered. For example, you may have a requirement to install two separate Management Groups in order to scale Operations Manager to meet your monitoring requirements.

Module 3: Upgrading Operations Manager
If you have already made investments in Operations Manager 2007 R2 it is important that you understand the upgrade path from Operations Manager 2007 R2 to System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager.

Module 4: Configuring Fabric and Application Monitoring
With Operations Manager deployed and agents installed on the computers hosting the applications and services you need to monitor you must now install Management Packs to start monitoring them. Before you install Management Packs you should understand Management Pack concepts including all elements of a Management Pack.
Lab : Configuring Application and Fabric Monitoring
Module 5: Application Performance Monitoring
Most organizations utilize the Microsoft .NET Framework to build custom applications such as for intranet web sites. As there will not be an available Management Pack for these custom applications you should understand how Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is configured in Operations Manager. APM provides extensive monitoring for .NET and Java based applications that include both Server and Client side monitoring.
Lab : Configuring Application Performance Monitoring
Module 6: End to End Service Monitoring
When monitoring key line of business applications, monitoring should be performed from both a data center perspective and an end-user perspective. In this module you will learn how you can create synthetic transactions to measure end-user performance.
Lab : Configuring End to End Service Monitoring
Module 7: Scorecards, Dashboards and Reporting
Visualizing service and application health in Operations Manager is a key feature that enables at-a-glance views to be quickly and easily created. These views (or dashboards) can instantly display performance and availability for one or more applications in a single pane.
Lab : Configuring Reporting, Dashboards and Service Level Tracking
Module 8: Configuring and Customizing the Console
Application support teams that use Operations Manager can do so either via a locally installed console or through the Web Console. Typically within an application support team there are a number of roles that require different levels of permissions when using the Operations Console. These range from read-only users through to advanced operators. Further to this, all of these roles must be limited to only display data about the computers and applications that the operators are responsible for. In this module you will learn how to use the inbuilt role-based security within Operations Manager to provide granular access to data, views and tasks in Operations Manager.
Lab : Customizing the Operations Console
Module 9: Management Pack Authoring
For common applications such as Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange Server there is already a fully developed Management Pack available. You can extend the default monitoring contained in Operations Manager by creating rules, monitors and groups within the Operators console.
Lab : Authoring Management Packs
Module 10: System Center Integration
System Center 2012 R2 consists of several components that provide complete management of the IT environment. This includes the server and desktop infrastructure and the networking infrastructure that binds them. You can also manage client devices by using System Center 2012 R2.
Lab : Configuring System Center Integration
Module 11: Troubleshooting, Tuning and Disaster Recovery
Your monitoring solution must be highly available to ensure your key line-of-business applications are available and performing at optimum levels at all times. Additionally, ensuring your system is fully optimized helps prevent outages and deterioration of performance of the monitoring solution. In this module you will learn how to optimize the data warehouse to ensure the correct volume of data is kept.
