Earlier this week, Microsoft released the first Beta development milestone for System Center Operations Manager 2012. Testers looking to get a taste of System Center Operations Manager 2012 Beta will now also be able to use an overhauled web console.

"The Web Console has been completely rewritten for OpsMgr 2012. It now runs on Silverlight, which enables a much richer Web Console user experience," revealed Microsoft's Kevin Holman.

System Center Operations Manager 2012 will be able to complete the same series of tasks from the web console as if they would by leveraging the actual console of the product.

From the web console, like using the regular Console UI, we can:

  • View alerts and health states of objects.
  • Work with alerts, close, change resolution states, assign or take ownership
  • Add comments to alert history
  • Show instance properties and run Health Explorer
  • Access to Product and Company knowledge
  • Execute agent tasks
  • Start and stop maintenance mode
  • Use existing My Workspace views
  • Create Dashboard views
  • Run Favorite reports

Here're the picutres of the web console:
