Exchange 2010 move database to another node RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all

     

    running Exchange 2010 sp1 rollup2 and SCOM 2007 R2 rollup 4 and i have imported the latest Exchange 2010 sp1 MP. When an active database moves to another node in the DAG i would like SCOM to raise an alert on this, currently it looks like SCOM detects the event, but it doesnt alert for it. It looks like the event is being generated by the "Database engine stopped an instance" event collection rule. If i want to get alerted when a database moves should i  configure a custom rule or monitor?

  • Hey Skipster,

    Collection rule exists, but no alert rule.  So yes, create a Custom Exchange 2010 MP to store your cool custom rules and monitors.  Add the Exchange 2010 MP as a reference to this mp (using authoring console) so that the class that the collection rule targets will be exposed to you when creating your new alert rule.

    Create your rule, targeting the same class that the collection rule targets, then test it, then seal the MP.

    This is if you want to go the authoring role.  Or you could just create a new rule in the ops console, copying the same params for the collection rule, but ensure you create a custom MP to store the rule in.  Do not store it in Default MP.

    Any further questions, feel free to ping.
