SCOM Report Server can be install in MS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Any help will be thank full.

    We are in the process of building SCOM 2019.

    We have 5 Management servers ( SERVER A,SERVER B,SERVER C,SERVER D, SERVER E)

    The proposed SCOM reporting Server is SCOM Z. Which contains the DB and SQL Reporting Service(SSRS).

    while installing the SCOM Report server Role on server SCOM Z. its asking to Specify a MS. here my confusion arise.

    Which one will be the ideal solution.

    scenario 1

    Configure the SSRS on SERVER Z that means the SCOM Report Server features will point to SERVER Z. AND  mention the primary MS SERVER A over the Specify a Management Server option.

    Scenario 2.

    Install the SCOM MS on SERVER Z. configure SSRS on Server Z. AND  mention the primary MS SERVER Z over the Specify a Management Server option.

    My confusion arise here " Enter the name of a MS to be used by the web console and Reporting Features only. the MS that you specify will handle the data associated with the Specific MS and MG.

    Regards,

    ANU

  • Hi,

    Scenario 1 would be the better option, that is Server A as the Management Server (MS).

    You can provide Server A when specifying the management server, no need to specify Server Z.

  • When you first install SCOM reporting, you have to supply a management server.  This is used for SDK based connections that SCOM reporting requires. As such we do not recommend to place SQL reporting server and Management server on the same machine in order to  optimize server performance.

  • Hi,

    In operations manager, each management server connects the database directly (through OMSDK service). In our environment, we can choose any management server (in the same management group), there is no difference. There is no need to install extra management server on Server Z.

    Normally, the first management server is the RMS Emulator (we can change this later). Server A is the safer choice.

    Hope the above information helps.

  • Thanks for the reply CyrAz.

    My confusion arise in this sentence.   " Enter the name of a MS to be used by the web console and Reporting Features only. the MS that you specify will handle the data associated with the Specific MS and MG."

    According to Microsoft wording can i mention SERVER A over here or need to install MS on SERVER Z and specify SERVER Z as MS to justify the MS statement.

    Thanks

  • No need to install the MS role where you want to deploy reporting role, so scenario 1/Server A is fine

  • Thank you Cryz. Any idea about the logic behind this statement " Enter the name of a MS to be used by the web console and Reporting Features only. the MS that you specify will handle the data associated with the Specific MS and MG."

    Any management server that you have installed will be able to make use the Reporting features, as long as the management servers are part of the same management group.
