SCOM 2007 R2 / DHCP 2008 MP / Running DHCP on a Cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've read that there's no support for monitoring DHCP while running on a cluster.  If there's no chance to move the DHCP Service from the cluster how can I monitor the amount of available addresses in each scope in an other way? Any idea?

    And: if there's someone out there who can me explain, why it isn't possible to monitor a DHCP service running on a cluster I would be very happy.

    Thank you for any answer and support.

  • I believe you are correct - the DHCP MP does not make special dispensation for clusters - so if you cluster DHCP, you will see both servers and possibly get alerts from the inactive.  If you run active/active you can monitor it because each server is an active DHCP server.  The physicals will be monitored but the VIP will not be monitored.
