SCOM 2012 - Agentless Monitoring - Not Monitored (Exchange 2010 Servers) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm having hard time in setting up Exchange 2010 Management pack on SCOM 2012 with RU2. I also have SP1 beta 1 on lab server. As soon as I install Exchange 2010 Management pack (latest one), it installs correlation engine followed by management pack import (manual.) After that SQL server collapses due to huge amount of data stuck at database serer. Once I put Exchange servers into maintenance mode in SCOM and manually processing State data, the SCOM management servers came to Healthy.

    But the same thing happened again as soon as I put Exchange servers out of maintenance.

    To overcome this, I uninstalled Agents and started adding servers Agentless. It's added, but it's not monitoring Operating Systems. It shows as "not monitored"

    I've another regular file server (running on server 2008 r2) added as Agentless and SCOM monitoring it's Operating System, but not Exchange servers OS even though it is Server 2008 R2.


    Can I install Exchange 2010 Management packs without installing Correlation engine on Management server?

    Any further help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • NO,

    You Cant have Exchange MP without Correlation service. Exchange discovery works on Proxy and with agentless, you may not have it.
