Running MOM 2005 Agent and SCOM R2 Agent Side by Side RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have read on various sites that it is not recommended to run both the MOM agent and SCOM agent side by side on DC's as well as Exchange Servers.

    Is this true? Just looking for a definitive answer.

  • I will say that I don't recommend this.

    both of these workloads put considerable load on the CPU due to the work the agent does.

    Having two agents doing similar work will use more resources than you want to.

    Further, the MOM agent is not supported any longer unless you have an extended support contract.  Putting unsupported software in production is not a recommended practice.
