Monitoring non-domain members (workgroup etc) with OM 2012

While the rest of the System Center community is in Vegas for MMS2012 I’m helping customers with their questions about System Center Operations Manager 2012. To be honest I’m little jealous on all the people who are in Vegas right now. Winking smile
So I created some more detailed documentation on how to start monitoring your non-domain members (workgroup servers in your DMZ) in OM2012.
It are still the same steps as in OM 2007 so if you already familiar with those steps it would be easy for you.
I created a simple Diagram to have a high-level overview on which steps are being executed on which machines.
Certificates_Workflow
    Environment:
    • OM12 RTM
    • Stand-Alone Windows Server 2008 CA (w2k8r2dc1.demo.stranger)
    • Two OM12 Management Servers (OM12MS01.demo.stranger and OM12MS02.demo.stranger)
    • Workgroup server in "DMZ" (OM12DMZ01.demo.dmz)
    Some important notes:
    • Server must have a FQDN, so if it is in a workgroup add a domain suffix manually.
    • The server being monitored must be able to resolve the FQDN of the OM2012 Management Server server.
    • Check if non-domain member server can connect to port 5723 from Management Server. (use telnet client)

    Pre-reqs:
    It is assumed that you have AD CS installed, an HTTPS binding is being used, and its associated certificate has been installed. Information about creating an HTTPS binding is available in the topic How to Configure an HTTPS Binding for a Windows Server 2008 CA.

    High-Level steps:
  1. Download the Trusted Root (CA) certificate.
  2. Import the Trusted Root (CA) certificate
  3. Create a setup information file to use with the CertReq command-line utility.
  4. Create a request file.
  5. Submit a request to the CA using the request file.
  6. Approve the pending certificate request.
  7. Retrieve the certificate from the CA.
  8. Import the certificate into the certificate store.
  9. Import the certificate into Operations Manager using MOMCertImport.
