CA Unicenter RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using CA Unicenter as our main monitoring framework, but we have also implemented OpsMgr 2007 R2 to monitor our Microsoft services.

    So, we need to connect OpsMgr -> Unicenter. Can this be done with the InterOp connectors or do we need a third party integration.

    Best regards,
    Morty

  • Hi.

    Personally I don not have that good experiences with Quest Connectors. But perhaps that is just me.

    These are the ones that Microsoft provides: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=592e4143-c5c8-4270-9a7a-cd0a31ab3189&displaylang=en

    Also a Universal Connector is to be found there. Perhaps this one can be used for connecting OpsMgr R2 with CA Unicenter.
    Best regards, Marnix Wolf

  • I do not have good impression with quest product either

    it needs one additional hardware (server) to host their eXc software, not very easy or friendly to use, price is not cheap.


    I once used MOM 2005 SP1 and Unicenter 3.1 integration, you may create a Management Pack, inside of it, put some commands or scripts, to send all MOM alerts or some alerts ( critical or above which also include Security and Service unavailable) to the designated TNG console, I believe they may use "cawto" MOM alerts to the TNG console, then use MR/MA (Message record / message action) to take action on the selected MOM alerts
