Introduction
T
he 70-247 exam deals with advanced topics that require candidates to have an excellent
working knowledge of both Windows Server 2012 R2 and the products in the System
Center 2012 R2 suite. Much of the exam comprises topics that even experienced systems
administrators may rarely encounter unless they work with Virtual Machine Manager, Orchestrator, Service Manager, Data Protection Manager, and Operations Manager on a day-to-day
basis. To be successful in taking this exam, a candidate not only needs to know how each of
these products works when used by itself, but how the products in the System Center suite
work together when used to monitor and operate a private cloud.
Candidates for this exam are Information Technology (IT) Professionals who want to validate their advanced Windows Server 2012 R2 operating system and System Center 2012 R2
management skills, configuration skills, and knowledge. To pass this exam, candidates require
strong understanding of how to design a System Center deployment, configure System Center infrastructure, configure fabric resources, configure System Center integration, and how to
configure and deploy virtual machines and services. To pass, candidates require a theoretical
understanding, as well as meaningful practical experience implementing the technologies
involved.
This book covers every exam objective, but it does not cover every exam question. Only
the Microsoft exam team has access to the exam questions themselves and Microsoft
regularly adds new questions to the exam, making it impossible to cover specific questions.
You should consider this book a supplement to your relevant real-world experience and
other study materials. If you encounter a topic in this book that you do not feel completely
comfortable with, use the links you’ll find in text to find more information and take the time
to research and study the topic. Great information is available on TechNet, through MVA
courses, and in blogs and forums.

CHAPTER 4
Configure System Center
Integration
T
he System Center products integrate with one another. You can leverage the functionality of one product, such as Operations Manager’s performance and availability
monitoring, with the automation capabilities of Orchestrator, and the incident and problem
management functionality of Service Manager. In this chapter you’ll learn how to integrate
several different System Center products, allowing them to build off each other’s functionality. You’ll also learn about Service Provider Foundation, and Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server, which allow you to customize the way that users of your private cloud interact
with the infrastructure.
Objectives in this chapter:
■■
Objective 4.1: Configure private cloud integration
■■
Objective 4.2: Configure integration of private and public clouds
Objective 4.1: Configure private cloud integration
This objective deals with integrating Operations Manager with Service Manager, and Virtual
Machine Manager. You’ll also learn about the Orchestrator integration packs (IPs), which
allow you to use each System Center product’s functionality when building automation
runbooks. You’ll learn about other non-Operations Manager connectors that are available,
as well as how to integrate VMM with the new IP address management feature of Windows
Server 2012.
This section covers the following topics:
■■
Integrating Operations Manager
■■
Orchestrator integration packs
■■
Other System Center connectors
■■
Integrating IPAM with VMM
217
Integrating Operations Manager
Operations Manager is Microsoft’s enterprise monitoring solution. When integrated with other products in the System Center suite, you can use it as a source of incidents and problems
for Service Manager, and to extend the management and monitoring functionality of VMM.
You can also use Operations Manager events to trigger Orchestrator runbook automation.
Integrating Operations Manager with Service Manager
The Operations Manager alert connector for Service Manager allows you to automatically
create Service Manager incidents based on Operations Manager alerts. An Operations Manager alert is created in Operations Manager when an object that Operations Manager monitors experiences a change that is deemed worthy of attention, such as a hardware or software
failure occurring on a monitored server. There are two types of Operations Manager connectors for Service Manager: the alert connector, and the configuration item (CI) connector.
The CI connector imports objects that Operations Manager has discovered into the Service
Manager database. Alert connectors bring alert information into Service Manager.
To create the alert connector, perform the following steps:
1. In the Administration workspace of the Server Manager console, click Connectors.
2. On the Tasks pane, click Create Connector, and then click Operations Manager Alert
Connector.
3. On the General page of the Operations Manager Alert Connector Wizard, provide a
name for the alert connector.
4. On the Server Details page, shown in Figure 4-1, specify the name of the Operations
Manager server and a Run As account that has permission to connect to Operations
Manager. Ensure that you use the Test Connection button to verify that the account
works and has appropriate permissions.
FIGURE 4-1 Alert connector configuration
218 Chapter 4
Configure System Center Integration
5. On the Alert Routing Rules page, click Add to add an alert routing rule. An alert rout-
ing rule allows you to specify which Service Manager incident template will be used to
create an incident based on an Operations Manager alert.
6. In the Add Alert Routing Rule dialog box, shown in Figure 4-2, provide the following
information:
■■
■■
■■
■■
Rule Name The name of the alert routing rule.
Template The Service Manager incident template that will be used when creating
the Service Manager incident.
Criteria Type Here you can select the conditions that trigger the alert routing
rule. You can choose between the alert being generated by a specific Operations
Manager management pack, being generated by a specific computer or security
group, a custom field, or an Operations Manager monitoring class.
Select Alert Severity And Priority Allows you to specify the alert priorities and
severities that will trigger the alert routing rule.
FIGURE 4-2 Alert routing rule
Objective 4.1: Configure private cloud integration
Chapter 4
219
7. As Figure 4-3 shows, alerts that don’t match any of your configured rules will automati-
cally be created as incidents using the Operations Manager Incident Template.
FIGURE 4-3 Routing rules
8. On the Schedule page, select the frequency at which Service Manager will query the
Operations Manager server for alerts. You can also configure the connector so that
alerts within Operations Manager will be closed when the incident that relates to the
alert is resolved or closed in Service Manager. You can also configure Service Manager
to automatically mark incidents as Resolved if the incident that triggered the alert in
Operations Manager is closed. Figure 4-4 shows these settings.

Monitor State Use this activity to monitor and run when an object managed by
Operations Manager has its state changed to Warning or Critical. You might use this
when configuring a runbook to have additional steps taken when the state of specific
Operations Manager monitored objects changes during runbook execution.
Start Maintenance Mode This activity allows you to put an Operations Manager
managed object into maintenance mode. Maintenance mode is a special state that
suppresses alerting. For example, you would put a server into maintenance mode when
applying software updates so that Operations Manager alerts aren’t generated by the
software update process.
Stop Maintenance Mode This activity allows you to take an Operations Manager
managed object out of maintenance mode, so that Operations Manager alerts are no
longer suppressed.
Update Alert Use this activity to update an Operations Manager alert with data. For
example, you could update an Operations Manager alert with information provided in
a Service Manager incident.

Integrating IPAM with VMM
IPAM is a Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 role service that allows you
to centralize the management of DHCP and DNS servers. You can use a single IPAM server
to manage up to 150 separate DHCP servers, and up to 500 individual DNS servers. A single
IPAM server is able to manage 6,000 separate DHCP scopes and 150 separate DNS zones.
You can perform tasks such as creating address scopes, configuring address reservations, and
managing DHCP and DNS options globally, rather than having to perform these tasks on a
server-by-server basis.
You can integrate the IPAM role with VMM. When you do this, VMM synchronizes IP address settings associated with logical networks and virtual machine networks with the IPAM
database. After you integrate IPAM with VMM, VMM administrators use IPAM to configure
and monitor logical networks and their associated network sites and IP address pools. Tenants, however, must continue to use VMM to manage and configure any virtual machine
networks that use network virtualization. Put another way, you cannot use IPAM to manage
the tenant address space.

This objective deals with Service Provider Foundation and Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows
Server, which are add-ons that allow you to extend your organization’s private cloud infrastructure. Service Provider Foundation allows you to build a multi-tenant self-service private
cloud. Microsoft Azure Pack for Windows Server allows you to use the Microsoft Azure public
cloud interface as a way of allowing your on-premises users to interact with your organization’s private cloud.
This section covers the following topics:

Understanding Service Provider Foundation
Service Provider Foundation allows you to build a multi-tenant self-service private cloud that
includes the following features:
■■
■■
■■
Multi-Tenancy Supports multiple separate tenants. Each tenant is isolated from
other tenants.
Usage Monitoring Monitor how cloud resources are being utilized through Operations Manager.
Usage Billing Service Provider Foundation supports chargeback, which is where
organizations charge tenants fees based on how they utilize resources.
■■
Usage Metering Measure resource utilization.
■■
Management Stamps A scalable unit of virtualized platform infrastructure.
A management stamp represents a unit of virtualized platform infrastructure that includes
a VMM deployment, one or more virtualization hosts, the VMs that are managed by VMM,
and the unique service accounts and user roles that are individual to that stamp.
Stamps are monitored through Operations Manager, though one instance of Operations
Manager may monitor many stamps. Stamps allow service providers to spread tenants and
services across System Center elements in separate datacenters. For example, if your organization has datacenters in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, a stamp can be configured to
allow a tenant seamless access to resources in all three locations.
250 Chapter 4
Configure System Center Integration
Stamps are scalable. This means that as a tenant’s capacity requirements increase, additional stamps can be allocated to meet that demand. For example, if a tenant needs 10,000
additional VMs in the Melbourne datacenter, additional stamps can be allocated to the tenant.
Service Provider Foundation allows organizations to use industry standard web service
interfaces to connect their own web based management interfaces to a System Center cloud
through the REST (Representational State Transfer) web service and the Odata (Open Data
Protocol) API. Service Provider Foundation provides a programmatic web-based management
interface to a large number of VMM scenarios. Rather than being restricted to using one of
Microsoft’s self-service portal implementations, a tenant can use their own Self-Service Portal
to interface with the System Center backend resources.
Service Provider Foundation has the following elements:
■■
Web Services These provide tenants with portal applications and administration
tools and include the following:
■■
■■
■■
Admin Web Service This web service generates User Roles, Servers, management
stamps and other objects required for administrative tasks
VMM Web Service This web service interacts with VMM to create and manage
virtual machines, virtual networks, and tenants
Usage Web Service This web service collects usage data from tenant virtual machines and other parts of the fabric such as storage and networking MORE INFO SERVICE PROVIDER FOUNDATION

End User Portal The end user portal is designed to replicate the Microsoft Azure
portal. Like the Microsoft Azure portal, the end user portal allows end users to access
their resources in the private cloud. Administrators can configure separate offerings for
each tenant.
Management Portal This portal is for cloud administrators. It allows them to manage the offerings and services that end users access through the end user portal.
Management API Web service that handles requests from the management portal.
Can also be used by third party management portals through OData REST standards.
Service Management API Database Stores configuration data.
Web Sites Provides a scalable shared web hosting platform. Supports sites that host
ASP.NET, PHP, and Node.js applications.
Virtual Machines Supports the deployment of any VM that can be managed using
VMM. Supports software defined networking and remote access connections to each
VM’s console.
Databases Supports Microsoft SQL 2008/2012 and MySQL 5.x in Platform as a Service configuration.
Service Management Automation Allows the building of automation based on
Orchestrator and PowerShell 3.0 workflows.
Service Bus Provides a messaging service between applications running in the private cloud.
VMM is able to collect usage data, such as CPU, memory, storage, and network utilization, for all of the VMs and virtualization hosts it manages. VMM stores this data in the VMM
database for 30 days. If you’ve integrated VMM with Operations Manager, this data can be
transferred across to the Operations Manager data warehouse.
256 Chapter 4
Configure System Center Integration
The Service Provider Foundation element of Microsoft Azure Pack is able to utilize this
data when stored in the Operations Manager data warehouse, providing it to authorized
users to view through interfaces such as the management portal for administrators. Service
Provider Foundation is able to collect metric data from multiple VMM instances and aggregate them so that you can use that data for billing, or for overall infrastructure analysis.

■■
Service Provider Foundation allows you to build a multi-tenant self-service private
cloud.
Service Provider Foundation clouds support multi-tenancy, usage monitoring, usage
billing, usage metering, and management stamps.
A management stamp represents a unit of virtualized platform infrastructure that
includes a VMM deployment, one or more virtualization hosts, the VMs that are managed by VMM, and the unique service accounts and user roles that are individual to
that stamp.
Stamps allow service providers to spread tenants and services across System Center
elements in separate datacenters.
As a tenant’s capacity requirements increase, additional stamps can be allocated to
meet that demand.
Microsoft Azure Pack provides an on-premises replica of Microsoft Azure services that
you can deploy in your datacenter, including Virtual Machine and website provisioning.
When deploying Microsoft Azure Pack, you need to provide credentials for the VMM,
Usage, Admin and Provider Application Pool identities on the Service Provider Foundation server.
