Placement of Custom Monitors and Overrides RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've read that all custom monitors & overrides should be placed in a newly created MP and never in the default MP, which sounds pretty clear cut, and there should be one override MP for every imported MP that is being used.  Our environment started out as a test quickly became production about a year ago.  The implementer is no longer here and we would like to clean up our structure.

    My question is, we create most of our custom monitors under the "Windows Server Operating System" class which is listed as part of the "Health Library" MP.  Most of the monitors are either event log monitors or service up/down monitors.  Should I have a "Health Library Overrides" MP for the custom monitors that we are creating?  Also, how is the "Windows Server Operating System Library" different and should an Override based on that MP instead?

    I'm sure this is a very basic question,  but I've only been working w/SCOM for a few months and am learning as I go along.
