How can I configure Operations Manager 2007 - Part 2

Recommended Posts

The SCOM DVD already has a folder on it called ManagementPacks which contains 42 predefined Management Packs, however the best practise is to get online and download the current version of any given Management Pack.


Step 1. Download and Install Management Packs


The following website contains Management Packs ready for download.


In this exercise we will download the Active Directory Management Pack.


Once you have downloaded the Management Pack, double click on the MSI file and choose Run.


Accept the Eula and click Next.




Leave the installation Path as default (c:)




confirm the Installation and click on Install




click continue when prompted by UAC and click close when the Installation of the Management Pack is complete.




You can now see the Management Pack files listed in Explorer, open the OM2007_MP_AD2008.DOC for details about configuring and installing the Management Pack. In there you'll see that we must import Microsoft.Windows.Server.Library from the Windows Base OS Management Pack before we install the Active Directory Management Pack. So Let's do that.



Download the following Windows Server Operating System Management Pack for Operations Manager 2007


Once downloaded, install it exactly as you did above for the Active Directory Management Pack.


Read the Guide that comes with this download, and note the following:


Before You Import the Management Pack

Before you import the Windows Server Operating System Management Pack, know the following:

• The Windows Server Operating System Management Pack provides the fundamental monitoring basics for monitoring computers running the Microsoft Windows operating system and Windows-based applications. You should import the Windows Server Operating System Management Pack before using any other management packs such as Microsoft SQL Server, Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), and Internet Information Services (IIS).

• Agents must be deployed to all systems to which you wish to apply this management pack.

• This management pack includes newer versions of the Windows Server Library and the Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000 Server management packs. Importing these management packs will overwrite any previous versions of those management packs.

Step 2. Import Management Packs


In the SCOM Console, click on import management packs, normally you should only import one management pack per every 24 hours to give them time to settle, but in a lab we can be more adventurous.




We will now import the Windows Server Operating System Management Pack.


Browse to the folder that you installed the Management Pack into and select the individual packs you need, for example, I don't have any Windows 2003 or Windows 2000 servers in this lab so I don't select those packs.




Once selected, choose Open and then click on Import




After some time you will be able to close the window.




We will now import the Active Directory Management Pack.


Open the SCOM Console and click on Administration, to the right, click on Import Management Packs.




Browse to the Microsoft Active Directory 2000 2003 and 2008 Management Pack for Operations Manager 2007 folder and in the right pane select some packs, as before i'm not using Server 2000 or Server 2003 in this lab however you must select both the Server 2000 and 2003 Discovery Packs otherwise the Server 2008 Monitor Management pack will fail.




click on Import when ready




click close once they are all imported
