Data Center Operation: PRO Pack is available for System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 and Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 as well as for System Center Operations Manager 2012 and R2, and Virtual Machine Manager 2012 and R2. These versions of Data Center Operation: PRO Pack are available:
A complete configuration of Data Center Operation with Data Center Operation: Capacity license is required (including association of monitored devices from Data Center Expert).
Data configuration in Data Center Operation
The Data Center Operation application must be populated with modeled data representing the physical enterprise infrastructure. This includes objects representing coolers and the physical servers, their location in the data center rack layout, and their power connections. Once the data center has been modeled with the correct inventory, virtual machine hosts can be associated to the graphical objects in the layout representing the actual servers.
You can make the data available to Data Center Operation: PRO Pack through web services including a definition of the polling interval. Read instructions on granting access to web service APIs here or read about the web service API here.
If you are integrating with Virtual Machine Manager 2012 and R2, your setup may look a little different from the instructions and images in this user assistance since these have been created for integration with Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2.
