The first two posts in this series showed how user could monitor all SnapManager and SnapDrive related events in SCOM.
Entering all required event IDs manually, in the SCOM console is a tedious task and SCOM offers no easy way to upload this in a batch.
We are now solving this by having an unsealed management pack which will monitor all SnapManagers (SMSQL, SME, SMSP and SMHV) and SnapDrive events
The unsealed management pack is in xml format and all user needs to do is import this into SCOM.(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc97449
This management pack contains the source name by which SnapManagers and SnapDrive log events in Windows event viewer on the host.
The management pack in its current state, will enable user to view any alert greater than information (i.e., warning and critical)
As mentioned, this pack is extensible so as to accomodate other event sources and alert levels. User would simply need to edit the
management pack by opening the xml file in an editor.
