comment Best way to connect multiple switches together
@Murali Suriar: Switches maintain a MAC Table that maps MAC Addresses to switch ports. This is the mechanism by which they forward packets to only the required ports and is the somewhat defining difference between switches and hubs. Not repeating all traffic on all ports significantly improves performance. You are correct that it is not an ARP table as ARP resolves IPs (which L2 switches don't care about). Switches learn MACs as traffic passes through them.

comment system center operations manager (SCOM) role combinations
Good suggestions overall. I would probably start with a 2 server setup (1 RMS, 1 SQL & Reporting). ACS isn't a first step item honestly in my opinion. Beyond that I would recommend a dedicated ACS Collector server running SQL Enterprise (online indexing will save your bacon here) with a boatload of fast disk space (no seriously, I've seen 1GB of data per day for a single DC). If you need the redundancy, a second MS makes sense, but I don't see a need to keep agents away from the RMS in this scale.

comment Monitor one server with two separate SCOM (opsmgr) consoles
you can also discover and "install" the agent from the second management group as usual and the agent will become multihomed on the second install.

comment Two-state script monitor not auto-resolving in SCOM
Monitors are set to poll on an interval (unless they're event monitors, but that's another question). This means that the healthy state will not be set until the next interval of the monitor. Also, there may be some delay in the re-calculation of the aggregate monitors above (for rolled up object health indication)

SCCM handles the Patch Management functionality. You are correct in the need to add SCOM though for the operational monitoring.
