Drive offline not monitored in SCOM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    For one of the server, it is observed that disk/Drive offline status is not getting detected in SCOM, even when I can see that the specific monitor is enabled for this check.

    Even on the agent logs I can see log as below but the it is not getting triggered in SCOM Management server.

    In PerfDataSource, could not resolve counter instance LogicalDisk, % Idle Time, E:. Module will not be unloaded.

    I am using SCOM 2012 R2 on 2008 R2 OS. can someone suggest me the way to check this issue further.

  • Hello,

    Based on my research, there is no direct way to monitor the status of logical disk. We may need to use powershell script to create rules.

    As far as I know, by running get-disk command we can get physical disk status.

    For Logical disk, we can run below command to get properties of it:

    Get-Wmiobject Win32_logicaldisk

    And then we can use Test-path command to check whether the disk can be accessed.

  • The Extended Windows Server Management Pack has a monitor for this if needed.
