Can I have two SCOM CI connectors enabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in the process of migrating our SCOM environment from 2012 R2 to 2016.  Can I have two connectors (one for each SCOM environment) enabled at the same time?  Will this cause any issues?  Thanks.

  • It is possible to run 2 or more than 2 SCOM Connectors in your environment.

    Are the CIs the connectors will sync the same? Then be aware the "last sync wins". This means: The information the last connector synced is will be displayed in SCSM. 

    For instance CI "Server1"  will be synced from both CI connectors.

    All properties of "Server1" are the same in both SCOM environments: everything is fine

    If in "SCOM1" a property of "Server1" is different than in "SCOM2" you will see the value of the property that is synced at the "last" sync (depends on the schedule of the SCOM CI connector).

    Hope this helps.
