Installing System Center 2016 Operations Manager Step by Step – Part 4

Part 4 – Installing Second Management Server

After you have successfully installed the First Management Server for SCOM, you can deploy additional Management servers to join the existing management group.

When installing second Management server, make sure it meets the SCOM Requirements.

Note: If you install a stand-alone web console on a server, you will not be able to add the management server feature to this server. If you want to install the management server and web console on the same server, you must either install both features simultaneously, or install the management server before you install the web console.

Install Second Management Server via command line

setup.exe /silent /install /components:OMServer,OMConsole,OMWebConsole /SqlServerInstance:%SqlServerInstance% /DatabaseName:%DatabaseName% /DWSqlServerInstance:%DWSqlServerInstance% /DWDatabaseName:%DWDatabaseName% /UseLocalSystemActionAccount /DASAccountUser:%DASAccountUser% /DASAccountPassword:%DASAccountPassword% /DataReaderUser:%DataReaderUser% /DataReaderPassword:%DataReaderPassword% /DataWriterUser:%DataWriterUser% /DataWriterPassword:%DataWriterPassword% /WebSiteName:”Default Web Site” /WebConsoleAuthorizationMode:Mixed /EnableErrorReporting:Never /SendCEIPReports:0 /UseMicrosoftUpdate:0 /SendODRReports:0 /AcceptEndUserLicenseAgreement:1

Install Second Management Server via GUI

To Install, Just doubler click or run Setup.exe and then click Install

On the Getting Started, Select features to install page, select Management server, Operations Console and Web Console.

On the Getting StartedSelect installation location page, accept the default location of C:\Program Files\System Center 2012\Operations Manager and then click Next.

On the Prerequisites page, review and address any warnings or errors that the Prerequisites checker returns, and then click Verify Prerequisites Again to recheck the system.

On the ConfigurationSpecify an installation option page, select Add a Management server to an existing management group, and then click Next.


Read the License Terms and Accept to continue.


When the ConfigurationConfigure the operational database page opens, type the name of the SQL Server database server and instance for the database server that hosts the operational database in the Server name and instance name box. If you installed SQL Server by using the default instance, you only have to enter the server name. If you changed the default SQL Server port, you must type in the new port number in the SQL Server port box.

After you have typed the correct values for the name of the SQL Server database server, click the SQL Server port box. Setup attempts to validate the values that you have typed for the SQL Server name and the port number.

Select the database name from the Database name drop-down list, and then click Next.


On the ConfigurationConfigure Operations Manager accounts page, Microsoft recommend that you use the Domain Account option for the Management server action account and the System Center Configuration service and System Center Data Access service account.

I believe the leave the Local System account for Management Server action account, but Domain account for System Center Configuration service and System Center Data Access service.

After you have entered the required accounts, Click Next.


Review the options on the ConfigurationInstallation Summary page, and then click Install. Setup continues


When setup is finished, the Setup is complete page appears. Click Close

In Device Management, select Management Servers. In the results pane, you should see the management server that you just installed with a green check mark in the Health State column.

    Thanks for you blog it really helpful but
    Your blog missing some basic information that is much needed for installation of Second MS like
    1) DB server name\SQL instances should have Sys-adm access to database than only it will display the Operation Database .
    2) SDK and Config service account should be present in local admin than only it will proceed further .

      Hi Amit

      Thanks for pointing out. Actually for this reason, I have pointed out to review the SCOM requirements for SQL with a link on page.
      I will look into adding the useful information that you have provided on the blog.
