Management Packs not displaying servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a strange problem with management packs in SCOM 2007 R2.

    We're running a 2008 R2 Active Directory. I've deployed the regular MP's (Server OS, AD, DNS, DHCP, DFS-N/R).

    The problem begins here, DFS and DHCP aren't detecting any servers, scopes, folders, namespaces, services or anything. The views in the SCOM console are completely empty. I've read the enclosed documents that came with the MP's and followed the necessary steps without luck.

    On the other hand, Active Directory, Windows OS, DNS and other mp's work without troubles. Agent proxying is enabled, agents are configured to use Local System as action account.

    So far I've tried to reconfigure the agent to use different run as accounts for the DFS and DHCP profiles but that didn't help either.

    Any clues anyone?

  • Bas,

    Windows 2008 R2 is NOT supported for DFS as stated in in the documentation:

    Monitored Computer


    Windows Server 2008 R2


    Windows Server 2008


    Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2


    Windows 7


    Windows Vista


    Windows XP



    For DHCP I am not sure it does not state it is supported or not. Although I just checked in my test environment and no DHCP is discovered on the 2008 R2 box so looks like it.

    Maybe someone can confirm the support of DHCP management pack on Windows 2008 R2 ?
