Resource Pools

SCOM 2012 introduces the concept of Resource Pools. We can now create a resource pool for Network Devices and non-Windows Servers for failover \ High Availability.

There are also out of the box Resource Pools for Notification Servers, AD Integration and an “All Management Servers” Resource Pool.

Couple of things to be aware of:

1) Windows agents do not use resource pools for failover which continues to function exactly the same as in SCOM 2007.

2) Resource Pools only apply to the “Health Service” functionality at present and not to SDK functionality. So you can’t use Resource Pools for OpsMgr connectors or for Console, Connectors or Reporting failover. For SDK failover, the current solution is Network Load Balancing.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than
    ever before.
