Skype for Business 2015 Management Pack limitations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am about to implement the Skype For Business SCOM Management Pack in an environment with 5 S4B pools. I was looking for any information about what are the limitations of the watcher node, but I could not find anything. I saw the hardware requirements for that it, but I would like to find answer for the following information:

    • How many S4B pool can be monitored by 1 watcher node?
    • When is it recommended to use more than 1 watcher nodes?
    • Do I need to put the server outside of the perimeter network to be able to test external connectivity or it is enough to configure to use external web addresses for the synthetic transactions?

    Thanks in advance for the help

  • Hello,

    A watcher node is a server responsible for periodically executing synthetic transactions for a pool, if you have deployed multiple pools and want to have automatci synthetic transactions run on each of then, you will need one server per pool.
