Configuring Redundant ACS Collectors in Ops Mgr 2007 SP1

New in SP1, Microsoft will now allow two ACS collectors to point to the same ACS database, but with only one active at a time. One acts as the primary collector, the other acts as the failover/secondary collector, which can only be enabled when the primary one failed or is disabled.

Pete Zerger and I have written a step-by-step walkthrough of the configuration and testing process for redundant ACS collectors. You can download the guide here.
