1) Yes. You will need an Active Directory infrastructure available. SCOM is heavily tied into those services. It is described further in the Infrastructure section of the Environmental Prerequisites. 2) Yes, but you may need a newer version of SCOM 2007. The original release version of SCOM does not support SQL 2008 because it didn't exist when it came ...

System Center is a suite of different monitoring, configuration management, and automation tools Microsoft sells for the Windows operating system. Collectively they achieve Systems Management. SCOM, System Center Operations Manager, is the monitoring component of that suite. SCCM, System Center Configuration Manager, handles configuration management. HP ...

None of these products will be impacted by the raising of the forest or domain functional levels. I can't think of a single application that would be impacted by this, as it typically only increases the number of features present in Active Directory.

SQL 2008 R2 is now supported for migrations if you install SCOM 2007 R2 Cumulative Update 4. KB Article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2449679/en-us Download Link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=39a871e0-d996-4568-be5d-2edb6f539330&displaylang=en Upgrade Procedure (I think this will still be updated): ...

To the best of my knowledge, the OpsMgr agent can only send data to one server; it cannot 'serve two masters', so to speak. Actually the agent can absolutely report to two different management groups. It's called "Agent Multihoming". Basically you just find the agent in Add/Remove programs and modify the install, it will bring up a dialog that will ...

This is entirely policy related and there's nothing you can do except suggest it if you're not in charge. If you want an admin to do something and they don't, then discipline if the only way. If you're not in a position to discipline anyone, then it's not your decision to make. You could always present your case to their manager and hope for the best, but ...

I've got these bookmarked... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/systemcenter/om/bb498235 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb310604.aspx (I'm a new member here, it wouldn't let me post more than two links)

Answer found, and it's a bit unpleasant (at least if you were expecting the people creating management packs to actually know what they are doing). Extracted from the monitor's description: This monitor verifies forwarder availability by performing an NSLOOKUP on the targeted forwarder. The script executes nslookup -timeout=<value> ...

This is a known issue that is solved when installing upate rollup 2. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2706783/en-us Issue 2 The Set-SCOMLicense cmdlet fails if the management group evaluation expiration time-out has expired. So install update rollup 2 en retry inserting the license key.

Jmeter is great for this. It's not 100% obviously how to use as it's quite flexible, but there are plenty of load-testing tutorials out there for it.

Microsoft's Documentation: How to move a site database in SCCM You must have SCCM 2007 SP1 installed with Hotfix KB955262 to use SQL 2008. For SCOM you must have SP2 installed. Then you get to move the three databases separately: Warehouse, Database, and Reporting.

SCOM 2007 R2 still does not support SQL 2008 R2 for existing installations. The latest cumulative update for SCOM (CU#3) was just released November 15 and didn't include support, so you will have a while to wait for a CU to cover it. You may be able to contact Microsoft Support and see if a hotfix is available through that route instead.

The maths add up for me. 55 > 2 > 1 > ? = SCOM Also, to be honest, the amount of stuff there is to monitor on a Windows machine, with all the various flavors of Microsoft software sitting on them, for me, would make a tool specialized in monitoring that product a priority. Lastly, I believe SCOM 2007 can monitor several *nix flavours, ESX, and any SNMP ...

According to the documentation, you can easily place a whole server in maintenance mode: In the Operations console, click the Monitoring button. In the Monitoring pane, expand Monitoring, and then click Computers. In the Computers pane, right-click the computer that you want to place into maintenance mode, click Maintenance Mode, and then click ...

Of course it can. There are also a lot of neat hardware vendor-specific packages for it.

There is no difference. "Close Alert" updates the resolution state of the alert to 255 - so does "Set Resolution State -> Closed"

This article might help clarify a few things: http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2012/05/23/kb-understanding-operations-manager-maintenance-mode.aspx Is there a recommended way to put a server, and all its contained objects, into maintenance mode, reliably? Putting the computer object into maintenance mode should work. Since SCOM 2007 R2 ...

It doesn't matter. MPs are pushed to agents very soon after they are imported. From my experience, most people install SCOM without any additional MPs at first, then add them in an orderly fashion. If you just install a whole slew of MPs at one time, you might get alert floods that are difficult to pinpoint. When installing MPs, be sure to read the ...

Looks like you picked the right day... General Availability of the product will be 1st July 2009, at which point new and existing customers will be able to obtain the bits from their respective customer download centers, such as MVLS. via technet My guess is it'll appear at some point today.

Makew sure you have looked at thew latest release of SCOM 2007 r2. I'd use SCOM, SCVMM and the quest juniper plugin. You can alaso simply do SNMP monitoring of the juniper stuff but it depends on what sort of reporting you need. You could also work on converting that last little linux box over to windows and save yourself the yearly support cost. If you ...

A quick solution would be to make tempdb big enough to avoid fluctuations. Resize the temp db to 1GB data, 500 MB log (or 2GB/1GB) Stop SQL Server Delete the tempdb LDF and LDF files Restart SQL Server Without going too deep, disk space is cheap and there is no harm in having a larger tempdb. As your data grows, you'll also start to use more tempdb too. ...

tempdb is used for lots of things, to name some: Tempdb tables, table variables Hash Matches Sorting operations Row version DBCC CHECKDB Re-building indexes, if the SORT_IN_TEMPDB option is used It's expected that free space will change, you can size tempdb accordingly to have at least have double the maximum that might be required to get around the ...

I'm not familiar with SCOM, but these failures will show up in your application event log as this: Event Type: Failure Audit Event Source: MSSQLSERVER Event Category: (4) Event ID: 18456 Date: 11/5/2009 Time: 9:33:49 AM User: N/A Computer: DEVMSSQL Description: Login failed for user 'bad_login'.

Trondh, i believe it is by design, yes. a great resource for OpsMgr can be found at http://www.systemcentercentral.com/

if you want to use OpsMgr then you will need to use VBscript in order to build such a rule. there may be a way to build some POSH scripts, but i haven't looked into that possibility. doing so would require something outside of OpsMgr to execute the POSH script on a regular basis. i am curious as to why OpsMgr is your preferred solution versus other ...

You question is more about routing and DNS then about SCOM. You could: Update your routing on your default gateway to route to the private network from public through your firewall. Alternatively use a local static route on each host in the public network to route through the SCOM public IP to get to the private IP. Hosts on the public network would then ...

The issue has to do with permissions on your Web Console directory. Whatever the Identity of the OpWebConsoleApp app pool is running as (I've changed mine to Network Service), be sure to add that to the Web Console directory and give it at Full Control (Modify may work too, but Read is not enough). Also, to avoid JScript errors be sure Authenticated Users ...
