Script monitor on agentless node RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to deploy a management pack which contains two/three-state script monitor to agentless managed server in SCOM 2016? The script is just a simple vbscript which will run a SQL query and it will be using "run as profile" to run the script.

    I'm still quite new to SCOM and I understand most of the default MPs wouldn't work with agentless node, but I couldn't find any information specific to my requirement.

    Appreciate any input,

  • No, You cannot run this since it is a VB and contains SQL in it. Since in agent-less monitoring we can only do Availability, performance and AEM monitoring. 

    And these two/three state VB monitor, i am not sure will work. But you can make a try to check :)

    You can read the below blogs for more on agentless monitoring in SCOM

  • Agentless monitoring means that you'll to monitor Server A from Server B. I don't see any reason why you can't do SQL Query from the remote host. Also you can use native module System.OleDbProbe without scripting.
