Making sure that Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 servers are operating reliably is a key objective for daily messaging operations. Therefore, it should be systematically approached based on the principles outlined in the Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF). For more information about the MOF, see Microsoft Operations Framework.

A significant aspect of Exchange 2007 daily operations is monitoring the health of the Exchange components to achieve the following functions.

The Exchange 2007 Management Pack for MOM 2005 Service Pack 1 (SP1) contains rules to monitor a comprehensive array of server health indicators and create alerts when problems are detected, or when reasonable thresholds are exceeded.

We recommend that you to upgrade to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 to take advantage of the new and improved monitoring features for Exchange 2007. For more information about Microsoft Operations Manager 2007 R2, see the System Center Operations Manager Web site.
