SCOM OS disk and Application Disk monitoring notifications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Presently I am using the Logical Disk (Abstract) monitor in my environment( SCOM 2012 R2)- Here is the problem on notifications we are seeing.  C drive System disk ( also D and Q drives)- I need these alerts to go to the Windows administration team ONLY-all other drives we consider as application drives, and I need these alerts to go to the specific App Groups- How can this be accomplished. 

    Can this be done (easily) with the built in SCOM Monitors?

    Any help would be great!  Thank you

  • Create one group of all C: drives. Create another group, of say, SQL Server non-system disks. We do this quite extensively

    We're a fairly large environment (4000+ agents, lots of applications like SQL, AD, Exchange, etc) and haven't had an issue with this.

  • You can achieve that by having 2 groups for the system and non drive and further streamline the subscriptions by adding groups of the servers under the subgroups (Which I believe you have at this point of time).

  • You will not be able to do this by modifying the monitors but instead you can do the below

    1) Create separate dynamic groups , 1 for C, D and Q drive only and the other group to include all drives except C,D and Q.

    2) Create separate subscriptions for the 2 alerts. In the first alert for system drive, only send alerts based n the first group you created earlier. For the second alert for application drive, create another subscription that only sends alerts for your second group you created earlier

  • Vincez,

    Thank you for the quick response!  The problem that we are still having is that we have multiple program areas and these areas need to get email alerting for events on their servers- If we go and create just 2 groups  we can not isolate the specific email addresses for notification to the server owner group.  We can create non-system drive groups under each application group, but are concerned about the database being over worked

    example:

    App drive (Not C,D,Q) group created

    group added as sub group to Project area servers

    as this groups will be created multiple time (for each project area)  will this cause database overload?

    We server admins only want to be alerted on C,D,Q drives with all other drive alerts going to individual project areas that own the servers

    *** Is there anyway to add a second "GROUP "criteria to a subscription?
