  • Question

  • Hey,

    i have a Server which does multiple roles like 5 different roles and i have all the 5 different management packs.

    i created the discovery & each MP successfully discovered this server.

    when i checked the health explorer i don't see all the MP's attached to it.

    what is the limitation & how to resolve it.

  • Not all management packs are designed to have their state rollup in the same way.  As such there isn't a single view that you can use to see the state of all management packs on a given system.  If you're not finding something specific under the Windows Computer, then go to the view folder for the specific MP(s) and there should be a state view there that you can use.

  • Hi,
    On which object did you start the health explorer? Depending on where you start it you will see different things. Use this tool instead to make sure the rules are running on the machine http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=A9DB4DCA-6716-478D-89B9-42F27EBC76A8&displaylang=en

  • Hi,
     
    Could it be that you open the health explorer in a incorrect place? So that you only see a limit number of classes and monitors?

  • Did you look in the discovered inventory view to make sure that the expected instances of your class show up? Right-click and select "change target type", then pick you class and ensure that the expected instances are discovered. You can then open health explorer from that view to make sure the expected monitors appear.

  • i opened the health explorer by going to Windows Computers under Monitoring pane==> selected the ServerX==> then selected Health Explorer.
