Open Text Content Server Monitoring Agent 5.0 with SCOM using SNMP RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi All

    Got a requirement to integrate Opentext monitoring agent with SCOM 2012.

    Can we use SNMP to forward the alerts to SCOM console ? or can we directly monitor opentext content server with some MP's ?

    Regards

    Madhavi.

  • That's the point. You cannot discover Windows Computers as Network Devices with SCOM 2012. So sending traps (directly) to SCOM is not possible.

    You can think about a workaround like writing the events to the Windows Event Log and grab them with an Event Log Rule/Monitor. Or send the traps to System Center Orchestrator and write an Alert using the SCOM Integration Pack.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Madhavi!

    Never seen a MP for that.

    Yep, you can receive traps from any system as long as you have discovered it as a network device. With that being said: that is not possible with Windows computers. If the application is running on a Windows OS you have to chose another way like writting to the event log and get it from there.

     The application is running on windows computer . We have MIB file for this application along with OID. Is it possible to configure for SNMP traps.

    As this is a windows machine , unable to discover as network device.
