Monitoring VMWare ESX using a SCOM

Filed under: Architecture, Microsoft, SCOM 2007, VMWare — opsmgr @ 1:53 pm

Monitoring VMWare ESX with SCOM isn’t a hard thing, however getting correct and relivent information in a clean and easy way can be. This guide I have compiled with VMWare should provide the mechanics of setting up monitoring between VMWare ESX and SCOM.

  4. I’m quit interessed in this stuff, and I have been waiting for this document to be posted. Now it’s posted i’m wondering: there is a vmware-traps-mib and several others. Is the contents for the other mibs available in scom aswell? Or will only the vmware-traps-mib be monitored from scom. As I understand scom listens for traps…

    For example: fdConnected, will this information be available? Or isn’t mom capable to read certain changes

  5. Why don’t you create a Management Pack for ESX?
