System Center Operations Manager 2012 R2 - ADI

Can someone explain to me, why I would Active Directory Integration in our SCOM 2012 R2 environment, which is basically 2 sites:  1 AD domain, 1 untrusted domain.

We are a small environment with a total of around 400 devices.  We have a main AD domain and then we have an untrusted domain, where we have a Gateway server.  We are monitoring servers in the AD environment & in our untrusted domain.  

From what I understand with ADI, is it is used for large environments of a few thousand devices.    We only have one management server in the AD site, and 1 management server in the untrusted site.

Why would I use Active Directory Integration, very little articles on this.
Thanks

Hi

You would use ADI in case you would want to have a failover SCOM machine.
If you create an SCOM installer agent and do not push it through SCOM but install it by hand on servers there is no central place to store information about the management group, the primary SCOM Management Server and eventually the failover Management Server.

Meaning if your SCOM server dies on you there is no way of monitoring your servers accept reinstalling SCOM and add all servers again.

HTH.

thanks, I thought that because we only have 1 management server, and I saw no point in installing ADI, if we only have one MS and are a small shop.
