What’s new in System Center Service Manager 2012R2

In System Center 2012 R2, Service Manager provides bug fixes and new features.

Chargeback
Chargeback helps you apply cloud-based pricing on Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) fabric and show that information to customers in order to minimize virtual machine oversubscription and underutilization. Chargeback illustrates how you can use System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) in a cross-platform environment where you use multiple Service Manager components to achieve your business goals.

In Service Manager, chargeback consists of a new node in the Administration workspace, new OLAP data cubes, and sample Excel reports.

Improved Operations Manager Integration
An System Center 2012 – Operations Manager R2 agent is automatically installed as part of Service Manager R2. After Setup completes, you must manually configure the agent for use with the Operations Manager management server. The agent is compatible with System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, System Center 2012 – Operations Manager, and System Center 2012 – Operations Manager SP1, R2.

To validate that the Operations Manager Agent was installed, open Control Panel and verify that the Operations Manager Agent is present.
