  1. There must be around 100x mgmt packs installed on our SCOM server. Can I somehow detect the unused ones so I can remove them? SCOM 2012 R2 RTM.
  2. Same procedure for a gateway server in DMZ 1.1 - Generating the certificate RDP to your Operations Manager (it's a good idea to have all the certificates at one server) Start Internet Explorer and navigate to: https://yourCAserver/certsrv If the server in DMZ is in a domain, you need the FQDN (for example servername.domainindmz.local) If the server is in workgroup, the servername is sufficient Export the Company Root Chain Certificate also! You need both installed on the server in workgroup/domain in DMZ in order for it to communicate with our
  3. Hi All, First of all, apologies if this has been answered somewhere already. There is just such a vast amount of information about System Center on here, it's difficult to find something as specific as this I believe. Anyway, I am an Infrastructure Engineer at the moment, tasked with installed SCCM 2016 along with SCOM 2016. The company I'm working for currently (just started with them) have nothing really in place for remote/DC management or monitoring (hence installing SCCM and SCOM). I have worked with SCCM 2012 in the past, implementing it in to a school a couple of year back
  4. Hi, I'm completely new to the SCOM world and i'm having some issue with what to do after i've sucessfully finished the installation. Everything is set and all good to go. At the moment i just want general monitoring of disk space and server availability but how is that achieved. I've already played around with it setting up management packs etc but couldn't get reliably working. Can someone help with just some basic post install tasks? Thanks in advance.
  5. In our last post we imported Management Packs. Now we need to work with the data being collected by SCOM. OK, so we now have SCOM setup, have installed the Agent on systems to monitor, and imported Management Packs to help monitor at the technology platform level. But what do we do with the Alerts that are generated by SCOM? Well, if you are the SCOM Administrator (or you have granted other users access), you can look at the Alerts from the console. But, that means you’re assuming/relying on others to regularly check the console for Alerts. In my personal experience, that’s not really goin

  7. I successfully installed SCOM clients onto computers belonging to an external but trusted domain, but ran into authentication problems along the way. I had to change one trust relationship setting to make it work. Here's what I found I had to do to make cross-domain installation and monitoring work: * Changed my trust relationship from "External" to "Forest," to enable Kerberos authentication * Open needed network firewall ports, as the external domain's network is separated by a firewall router deliberately * Create an action account that matched a domain account in the external dom
  8. Hey Everyone, I just wanted to share quickly that a new (and much improved) Exchange 2013 Management Pack has been released for SCOM! A colleague of mine wrote a review of it, which you can find here: http://overcast.fehse.ca/2014/10/new-exchange-2013-mp-is-out/.
  9. In our last post we installed SCOM and the Agent on several systems. Now we are going to install ACS to audit security events. Install Audit Collection Services Since Audit Collection Services (ACS) is not a part of the main SCOM installation, we have to install it separately. NOTE: In a Production environment, ACS is normally implemented in a segregated space. The reason for this is because ACS is used to audit security and logons. Since the Administrator of SCOM will more than likely be a part of an Operations team, and have access to various Production/Non-Production server
  10. Hi, All I has installed SCOM 2012 on my Server. How could I tell which language version of SCOM has been installed from registry? Thanks. I look through the following reg path, can't find any language related key or values. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\System Center Operations Manager
  11. Hello All, I just wanted to share this mini-series I wrote/posted about making the SCOM Data Access Service highly available (though not officially supported). URL: http://adinermie.wordpress.com/2014/04/18/scom-2012-r2-data-access-service-das-high-availability-part-1-configure-a-static-ip/. Don't forget to check out my blog for new posts regularly (as I post there first before re-posting here).
  12. In our last post, we installed SQL Server. Install System Center Operations Manager We are now finally ready to install SCOM. Install SCOM Start by either extracting the DVD contents, or mounting the ISO (the TechNet ISO is currently labelled as en_system_center_2012_operations_manager_with_sp1_x86_x64_dvd_1347175). Start by running the setup.exe. On the splash screen click the Install link. On the Select Features screen, select the feature you want to install. In our example, we are installing all features on the same server, so we will select all of them and click Nex
  13. Hello All, I have just posted a quick page on my initial experience with installing System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2012 R2. You can find it here: http://adinermie.wordpress.com/scom/scom-2012-r2/ Feedback and requests are welcome.
  14. REPOST: We've recently had a few calls from customers regarding their on-premise Operations Manager 2012 Web Console - it works fine except they can't access any performance graphs. They receive a generic looking red x in the upper left corner. The resolution posted at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh298606.aspx did the trick. The following steps resolved the issue: Open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files\System Center 2012\Operations Manager\WebConsole\MonitoringView Right-click the TempImages folder and select Properties Select the Security tab and click Advanc
  15. In our last post, we installed Active Directory. Now we will install SQL Server. Install SQL Server At this point, since we will be installing SQL Server on the same server that we will be installing SCOM, it is expected that you have the VM created, the OS is installed, the appropriate networking has been configured, and it is joined to your lab domain. To avoid a specific installation error (see the end of the Install SQL Server section), you have to install the .NET Framework 3.5. So we’re going to complete this first before we start the installation of SQL. .NET Framework Inst
  16. Good to see a SCOM section here. Started using SCOM 2012 R2 to monitor a domain network. It's complaining that the DCs are lagging in AD queries: "The AD Last Bind latency is above the configured threshold." DCs talking to the PDC emulator are also complaining, "The Op Master PDC Last Bind latency is above the configured threshold." Turning off the Windows Firewall on the DCs stops the lag, but I don't consider that an acceptable solution. Further research told me that a firewall filter named, "Port Scanning Prevention Filter," is responsible. I won't go into the frustration about that
  17. Management Group Names Must be UniqueWhen you deploy both a Service Manager and data warehouse management server, you are asked to provide a management group name. You are also asked to provide a management group name when you deploy Operations Manager. The management group names that you use for the Service Manager management group, the data warehouse management group, and the Operations Manager management group must be unique. Important: If Operations Manager and Service Manager share the same management group name, you will have to reinstall the Service Manager management server. Becaus
  18. Two connectors for Operations Manager are available in System Center 2012 – Service Manager: the configuration item (CI) connector that imports objects that are discovered by Operations Manager into the Service Manager database, and an alert connector that can create incidents based on alerts. System Center Operations Manager collects information about many different types of objects, such as hard disk drives and Web sites. To import objects that are discovered by Operations Manager, Service Manager requires a list of class definitions for these objects; the list of definitions is in the S
  19. In our last post, we finished configuring computers and devices to be managed by SCOM. So at this point we have SCOM setup and running, along with a few agents installed on other systems in our environment. Technically, you could say that we are monitoring our environment, however, this isn’t entirely accurate. In actual reality, SCOM is only monitoring the state of the Agent that is installed on the systems. Right now, SCOM has no insight into the Operating System, or any middleware platforms (i.e. SQL, IIS, AD, etc.). We are going to correct that by importing Management Packs. D
  20. Hello everyone, if you have been following along with my installation guides, you should now have SCOM installed. But SCOM won’t do you any good if it doesn’t have any computers or devices to manage, so that’s where we will start as part of these Configuration guides. First, start by launching the SCOM console. Now, navigate to the Administration pane. From there, under Device Management find ‘Agent Managed’. Right-click on the Agent Managed item, and choose Discovery Wizard. The Computer and Device Management Wizard will start. You must first choose why type of devic
  21. In our last post we installed the Operating System on our VM's. Now, we will install Active Directory. Install Active Directory Domain Services Now that we have the VMs created, and the OS installed on both, we need to first install/setup Active Directory (AD). When you log into a new installation of Server 2012, Server Manager will auto launch. From Server Manager, click on Manage, and choose ‘Add Roles and Features’. On the Add Roles and Features Wizard, read the information on the Before You Begin dialog, and then click Next. On the Installation Type screen, selec
  22. In our last post, we initially setup the VM's required for our lab. Now we'll focus on the OS. Install the Operating System Now that we have created the VMs for our lab, we can install the Operating System (OS). Start by connecting to one of the VMs, either by double clicking on the VM in Hyper-V Manager, right click the VM and choose Connect, or click on Connect from the Action pane/menu. When you have the VM connection up, and an ISO mounted, power the VM on. On the Windows Setup screen, select the Language, Time/Currency Format, and Keyboard Method appropriate, and
  23. Hello All, Inspired by the awesome SCCM 2012 guides, which were extremely helpful, and based on the numerous posts requesting guides on SCOM, I have decided to contribute to this site and create some. As an FYI on my background, I hold many certifications, and have been working with System Center for several years. Although that may not seem like a lot, I am a firm believer in the number of years don't fully represent the depth of experience. In my example, I worked with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, and specialized with SCOM. In fact it is the ONLY thing that I worke
  24. I've been searching for a definitive answer, and also checked on technet. So does anyone know is SCOM 2012 supported with SQL 2012 SP1? I know SCOM 2012 SP1 is supported, just can't verify if SCOM 2012 is. Thanks, Paul
  25. I need your help in the following: I am going to install SCCM 2007 and SCOM 2007 on Hyper V. I want you to advise me what is the best practices?, what I can do and what I can’t?, what are the hardware prerequisites? You can send me some articles because I have tried a lot to find something related to that but I could not. Thanks a lot,
