SQL Discovery on XP & win 7 clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    So the question is how to run discovery and then monitoring of SQL Excpress DB on Windows Clients ie. XP and Win 7 machines. Is there a way I can change discovery into including the clients, do I have to create a new MP... as I'm a newbe I hope last mentioned isn't the answer. I'm running SCE 2010 and all clients have agents installed + no errors in eventlog so every thing is working 100% except for the SQL issue. Thanks in advance!

  • The SQL DB engine discovery (for all versions) is targeted at Windows Server. You'll need to roll your own.

  • Hi Andy,

    I've gatherd so much, as said I'm a newbe... how would I go about doing this, can I modify the current on for servers to do win7? Ir is something that'll have to do from scratch? Surely there must be others that's done this in the past, I can't be the first one?!

  • You're on your own, really. Start reading MP design guides and things, you have a lot of work ahead of you.
