Operations Manager 2007 and Service Manager 2010 SP1
Applies To: System Center Service Manager 2010 SP1
At this time, we recommend against hosting an Operations Manager 2007 management server on a computer that is also hosting a Service Manager management server or a data warehouse management server.
Management Group Names Must be Unique
When you deploy both a Service Manager and data warehouse management server, you will be asked to provide a management group name. You were also asked to provide a management group name when you deployed Operations Manager. The management group names you use for the Service Manager management group, the data warehouse management group, and the Operations Manager management group must be unique.
If you install an Operations Manager 2007 R2 agent on a Service Manager 2010 SP1 installation that has the same management group name as the Operations Manager management group name you will have to reinstall the Service Manager 2010 SP1 management server. Because it is not possible to rename a management group, you will either have to completely reinstall Service Manager 2010 SP1 with a different management group name or choose not to manage your Service Manager 2010 SP1 installation with Operations Manager 2007 R2.
