Can't get some switches out of "Not Monitored" state RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am building an SCOM environment as a school internship assignment.
    Everything went well so far, but now i'm stuck at the following point:
    When i added 2 cisco switches they were added in "Not Monitored" state, and I can't seem to get them to turn into "monitored" state. When i added a cisco router, it was immediatly Monitored.
    I am using SCOM 2007 with Service Pack 1 installed, run on a WS2003 Standard Edition VMware machine. This is my first experience with the SCOM software, so I'm fairly unexperienced.
    Is there something I am missing? should I maybe install an additional management pack for those switches? The SCOM environment is in a very early stage, since I have just begun adding the network devices.
    I hope I layed out the problem clear enough, and appreciate the help you can give me.
    If any additional information is needed, please ask for it so I can give it to you.
    Thanks in advance!

  • HI,
    First, this forum is for System Center Essentials. For support for System Center Operatiosn Manager, please use the News groups (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/opsmgr/bb839593.aspx).

    As for your SNMP problem you should update your SCOM enviroment with some hotfixes. You can find good information about what you should apply at http://blogs.technet.com/kevinholman/archive/2009/01/27/which-hotfixes-should-i-apply.aspx. One specific is the kb957511 that fixes some SNMP problem. Also look at http://www.systemcenterforum.org/news/workaround-for-opsmgr-and-essentials-2007-hotfix-installation-problem/ to verify that the update is applied correctly.

  •  Sorry for posting in the wrong forum, I applied the update like you said, but I still have the problem.
    I made a new topic in the right subforum which can be found here:
