Monitoring Exchange Server 2007 with System Center Operations Manager 2007

Just a few days ago, my new book (of the subject title!) started shipping from Amazon. If it hasn’t already, it should start appearing in your local bookstores this week.

If you want to order from Amazon, you can get it here.

Eight months in the making, this book was a labor of love. Including information on installing and configuring OpsMgr 2007, it also includes much information about operating a reliable Exchange environment. Even if you don’t have OpsMgr in your organization, you can learn from this book the key areas of Exchange that need monitoring and how to do so.

A strong PowerShell component is provided in several chapters to assist you in the generation of synthetic transactions for testing your Exchange environment.

While the book is written toward a key audience of Exchange Server 2007 administrators, much material is also provided for the Exchange Server 2003 administrator. The book uses a virtualized environment to describe a test roll-out of an OpsMgr 2007 and Exchange 2003/2007 mixed environment.

Since Exchange Server depends on the health of Windows Server, Active Directory, DNS, and IIS; tracking the health and well-being of these key services is also covered.

Go buy it. You’ll like it. 🙂
