Category: SCOM



Have you ever creating custom monitor on SCOM 2007 R2 to grab specific event ID on Windows Server event viewer ? example if Server1 has event ID 1000 with severity critical/error it will generate alert to SCOM. If you don’t know how to to create it, read about it : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb309597.aspx/

So the next question is how to test it ? Confused smile wait until the event come ? boring..Sarcastic smile

The answer is create your own event to repro the alert, the link said we can create by using EventCreate.exe, but I’m using Logevent.exe , you can download it here.

Like the example, execute this command :

logevent.exe -m \\krisnais-nb02 -s W -c 100 -r "my event" -e 2915 "Event Created!”

Check your event viewer and there it is! Open-mouthed smile

According to this KB it can : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2425714

So, here’s the step I’ve been working through, you have to create DB OpsMgr and OpsMgrDW from DBCreateWizard.exe, click Next

Choose the DB Type and DB Size, Next

image

Entry the Management Group name, click Next twice

image

Verify the Summary and click Finish

image

And your DB created successfully

image

Don’t forget continue with DB OpsMgrDW

image

If you open SQL Server Management Studio you will see two DB created Smile

This is important when you install SCOM, do not select the Database component

Before installing SCOM Reporting component, rename the local group : SQLServerReportServerUser$<hostname>$MSSRS10_50.<SQLInstanceName> to SQLServerReportServerUser$<hostname>$MSSRS10.<SQLInstanceName>

Same with installing SCOM Reporting, do not select Data Warehouse component

image

After finish the installation, Rename the local group SQLServerReportServerUser$<hostname>$MSSRS10.<SQLInstanceName> back to original name SQLServerReportServerUser$<hostname>$MSSRS10_50.<SQLInstanceName>
