Infrastructure updates

I’m moving my primary Active Directory and Kerberos box (which also hosts the internal DNS and DHCP) from Windows 2003 to Windows Server 2008 this evening.

That should free up a box to put System Center Operations Manager 2007 on to.

My goal is to get Operations Manager to map and display my home and lab infrastructure – and to alert on health and performance issues. I hope to use Operations Manager 2007 R2 beta; that will give me cross-platform monitoring. I’ll try and tie in some other partner tools to get some sexy mapping and alerting.

Update Monday

It’s change control time again..

Big blog updates this week:

Blog updates

Live family blog is now updated and running WordPress 2.7 beta 1. This site will be updated later today.

Looks like a small cache/redirect glitch somewhere on the WPG integration – it was rewriting URLs in a strange way. That’s working now.
