How to Deploy the Operations Manager Web Part
Before you can add the Operations Manager Web Part to a SharePoint page, the Web Part must be deployed to the SharePoint site.
The Operations Manager web console must be installed on a management server: How to Add the Operations Manager Web Part to a SharePoint Page
After you deploy the Operations Manager web part to a SharePoint site, you can add the web part to pages.
When you add the web part, you configure it to display a specific dashboard view. For the configuration, you will need the URI for the dashboard view that you want displayed.

After the web part is deployed and activated, you must configure the web part to connect to a web console or environment. You can add more environments at any time. Use the following procedure to configure the environment for a web part.
To configure the environment for a web part by using the user interface
On the SharePoint central administration site, in the Site Actions dropdown menu, click View All Site Content.
In Lists, click Operations Manager Web Console Environments.
Click Add new item.
In the Name field, enter a unique name.
Question No: 13 – (Topic 1)
You need to implement a solution to meet the monitoring requirements for App1. Which template should you use?
Web Application Transaction Monitoring
Answer: B Explanation:
The Web Application Transaction Monitoring template lets you test a website or web-based application by sending requests over HTTP, validating their response, and measuring their performance. This can be a simple test to determine if the website is responding, or it can be a complex set of requests to simulate a user who is performing such actions as logging
on to the site and browsing through a set of pages.

Topic 2, NorthwindTraders Overview
Northwind Traders is a retail company.
The company has offices in North America, Europe, and Asia.
The company plans to implement a private cloud solution that uses System Center 2012 R2.
Existing Environment Network Infrastructure
Northwind Traders has a single data center that contains an internal network and a perimeter network. The networks are separated by a firewall. The relevant portion of the network is shown in the exhibit. (Click the Exhibit button.)
The networks contain the network devices shown in the following table.
The network contains an Active Directory forest named northwindtraders.com. The forest contains servers that run either Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2008 R2.
Northwind Traders uses Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to deploy updates to all of the servers in the data center. WSUS is installed on a server named NWT-WSUS01.
The network contains as the servers shown in the following table.
Northwind Traders has Hyper-V hosts that run either Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012. The Hyper-V hosts contain virtual machines that are used on the network.
The current System Center 2012 infrastructure does not use any cloud settings in VMM.
Northwind Traders develops several web applications by using the Microsoft .NET Framework. The company also hosts a third-party UNIX-based web application on the perimeter network.
Planned Implementation Network Infrastructure
Northwind Traders plans to upgrade all physical servers to Windows Server 2012 R2.
Northwind Traders also plans to upgrade all of the System Center 2012 components to System Center 2012 R2 and to deploy all of the System Center components that are not deployed already.
The company plans to deploy the new System Center 2012 R2 servers shown in the following table.
NWT-SCOM2 will be deployed to the perimeter network
After the planned deployment of System Center 2012 R2, Northwind Traders plans to move all virtual machines to four new private clouds named IT, Sales, Finance, and Corporate.
Northwind Traders also plans to virtualize all of the servers that run SharePoint Server 2013.
Northwind Traders plans to provide a runbook-based solution for application developers to create virtual machines in a test environment.
Northwind Traders also plans to implement a chargeback solution for the virtual machines used by the IT, Sales, and Finance departments.
After the planned deployment of System Center 2012 R2, Northwind Traders plans to implement the following monitoring solutions:
->Generate reports that provide details about the virtual machines, the storage pools, and the network devices used in the private clouds.
->Monitor the availability, CPU usage, and memory usage of all the network devices
in the data center.
->Monitor the performance of all the SharePoint servers by using a single dashboard.
After the planned deployment of System Center 2012 R2, Northwind Traders plans to manage updates from System Center 2012 R2 and to integrate the existing WSUS server into the System Center 2012 R2 infrastructure.
Question No: 16 – (Topic 2)
You need to recommend a solution to prepare the infrastructure for the planned monitoring implementation.
Which three actions should you recommend performing after NWT-SCOM01 is deployed and NWT-VMM01 is upgraded? Each correct answer presents part of the solution.
On NWT-VMM01, configure integration with Operations Manager.
On NWT-SCOM01, import all of the management packs that start with Microsoft.SystemCenter.VirtualMachineManager.Storage.
On NWT-VMM01, configure integration with WSUS.
On NWT-SCOM01, install the Microsoft Monitoring Agent and the Virtual Machine Manager console.
On NWT-VMM01, install the Microsoft Monitoring Agent and the Operations Manager console.
Answer: A,B,E Explanation:
The technet article
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh882396.aspx How to Connect VMM with Operations Managerquot; , mentions:
Install an Operations Manager Operations console on the VMM management server. (option E)
Install Operations Manager agents on the VMM management server (option E) and all hosts under management by VMM (managed hosts). For more information, see Operations Manager Agent Installation Methods.
In Operations Manager, import the necessary management packs (option B)
Considerations for Upgrading VMM quot; that mentions:
quot;If you have an existing connection to Operations Manager, the connection is removed during the upgrade processquot;
quot;After the upgrade process completes, you can reconfigure your connection to Operations Managerquot;
Question No: 17 HOTSPOT – (Topic 2)
You need to identify the minimum number of Operations Manager components required to implement network device monitoring.
What should you identify? To answer, select the appropriate numbers in the answer area.
Question No: 18 DRAG DROP – (Topic 2)
You need to implement and test the runbook-based solution.
Which tools should you use for each task? To answer, drag the appropriate tools to the correct tasks. Each tool may be used once, more than once, or not at all. You may need to drag the split bar between panes or scroll to view content.
If you want to use integration packs (IPs) that extend the capabilities of Orchestrator, such
as integration of other platforms and tools (for example, HP Service Manager), you need to register and deploy them into your Orchestrator environment. This can be done using the Deployment Manager, a tool that is used to deploy runbook servers and Runbook Designers.
The Orchestrator Runbook Designer shown in Figure 2-1 is a graphical interface for authoring runbooks (source same pdf page 5)
The Orchestrator Runbook Tester is another key feature that assists in the runbook design process by providing the ability to test runbook functionality prior to implementation of your runbooks in a production environment (source same pdf page 7)
Question No: 19 – (Topic 2)

The Monitoring Pack for UNIX and Linux Operating Systems
A TCP Port monitor
A Web Application Transaction Monitor
Global Service Monitor
