Can multiple SCOM management groups connect to a single SCInterop event consumer RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hiello,

    Can anyone tell us if more than one SCOM instance or management group can connect to a single Event Consumer.

    We have two distincet SCOM instances (management groups) that we wish to connect a single HP OM instance. Is this possible with the SCInterop connector?

    We already have one management group sending alerts however we are concerned if we install SCInterop connector opn a second management group that we will loose the configuration of the first management group. The connector will be installed on a seperate server with a seperate SCInterop databse.

    I am guessing this is possble however I would like to be sure before try this out.

    Any help would be much appreciated.Regards

    BTW we are running SCOM 2007 R2 and HP OM Windows version 8.11.

    Tony

  • Tony,

    Yes this is possible. The connector is configured by the SCOM Management Group name. So alerts sent from one management group to HP OM are always synced back to the proper management group from HP OM.

    You will need to import the SCOM certificate from each SCOM server to the other SCOM server so they can both talk to the same agent. See details below but you can find this here as well http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc540378.aspx

    To copy a certificate from one server to another         

    1. Log on to the management server that has the certificate you want to export and import.

    2. At the command prompt, change the directory to %ProgramFiles%\System Center Operations Manager 2007. Run this command: scxcertconfig.exe – export <filename>.

    3. While the file created by scxcertconfig.exe contains
      only the public key of the certificate, you should still treat it as a
      security-sensitive file. The file, and any copies of the file, should be
      explicitly deleted when the certificate is imported into the new
      management server in step 5 in this procedure. Verify that the new
      management server can access the file copy location.

    4. Log on to the management server that you want to monitor agents from.

    5. At the command prompt, change the directory to %ProgramFiles%\System Center Operations Manager 2007. Run this command: scxcertconfig.exe –import <filename>.

    Importing the certificate only allows Operations Manager to trust agents signed with that certificate. If multiple management servers will be signing certificates, the certificates must be exported from each management server, and imported into the other management servers.

    Regards,
