  • General discussion

  • Folks


    I would like to gather your valuable inputs and requirement on what it take to monitor and maintain VMMSSP 2.0  infrastructure servers in order to help the ITPros (Admins) in managing the infrastructure effectively and resolve any issues by fixing them immediately. 

    The key emphasis of the management pack is to monitor VMMSSP 2.0 deployment for any event that will disrupt the ability of the infrastructure to service the requests and alert the IT Operations personnel via an Operations Manager 2007 environment.


    My ask from you: Please provide your wish list or requirements which will result in managing the VMMSSP 2.0 infrastructure effective.  For example:  What events you want to monitor, which ones should have alerts, health roll-ups and finally knowledge base which helps the Admins to fix them immediately without spending lot of time in researching how to fix it.


    Goal:  Our goal is to help Admins managing VMMSSP 2.0 infrastructure by providing a high impact Management Pack


    IF you have any questions or need clarification please feel free to chime in.

  • Hi, From initial thoughts the ssp environment is really missing a notification system. Utilizing the management pack we could fill in the omission by generating alerts for the lab administrators on pending jobs and requests, for example new infrastructure requests ect. Also, as there is no facility to rerun a failed job for the end users, it would be important for the administrator to have a report or alert on when jobs fail and how many so that measures maybe taken and the administrators can become aware of potential issues which their users may be experiencing.
