Hi there,

I'm trying to setup SCOM(System Center Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM) – Platform Monitoring) on my Server 2008 machine using SQL Server 2008 running on the same machine. When I check my prerequisites I get problem on SQL and Active Directory components. (I'm running SQL server 2008 and Server 2008 with active directory not installed)

Errors: 1.Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 required. Details: SQL Server 2005 SP1 is the next version of SQL Server. SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, is a complete data and analysis platform for large mission-critical business applications. The link provided in the resolution column is a trial version of the product and is not supported by the Microsoft SQL Server team

  1. In order to install active directory needs to be present. Details:Setup failed to verify the presence of Active Directory for this server.

I've got a couple of questions I need answering, hope someone can help.

  1. Do I need to install Active Directory for SCOM to work?
  2. Can I run SCOM with an SQL 2008 Database?
  3. How do I get pass these problems?
