SQL Listeners / Cluster Nodes not Monitored RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, we installed SCOM 2016 agents on some of our SQL servers with Always On and Windows Failover Cluster based on 2016 with Windows Server 2016 and 1709+ Cluster Management Pack (10.1.0.0) and all of those entities in the view of Agentless Managed (Administration) and Windows Computers (Monitoring) are showing as Not monitored. 

    Not sure if this is how it should be or there are some settings I can either make them to be monitored or not displayed as empty objects without any monitors.

  • Hi,

    if you have waited enough and you are sure that the dioscovery has been run, then the next thing to do is to check the events from the Operations Manager event log on your management servers and look for errors or warnings related to the dioscoveries and the associated workflows.

    Can you please also check what is the state of the objects under "Administration --> Agentless Managed"?

    You can also try to force the dioscvery with PowerShell, liek described here:

    Forcing a SCOM discovery with PowerShell (the easy way)

    and then chceck the event logs again. 

    Please post back again, we will do our best to help. 

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    The default discovery times for the cluster objects are 14400 seconds (4 hours).

    Could you also check the object state over here?
    Monitoring Microsoft Windows Cluster > Cluster Cluster State

    Have you enabled the Agent Proxy setting on all agents that are installed on servers that are members of a cluster?

    Also make sure you have the Microsoft System Center Management Pack for Windows Server Operating System 2016 and 1709 Plus management pack.

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Hello,

    Nodes in Windows Failover Cluster are discovered properly same goes with Availability Group and so on with SQL MP. 

    The case is only with those cluster and listener objects, not really sure why they are appearing if they have no monitors turned for them. They are computer objects in AD with IP address but not real servers.

  • Hey,

    Leon has a point. Make sure your cluster nodes are enabled as Proxies in SCOM.

  • Hey,

    Yes, all the nodes are Proxy Enabled. 

    I see clusters state in the Monitoring Microsoft Windows Cluster > Cluster Cluster State

    I had the MP already for OS

  • The cluster nodes will be displayed in Agent Managed, and the cluster will be displayed in Agentless Managed. The cluster will show as "not monitored", unless a management pack contains monitors that specifically target the cluster object. 

    You can follow up the steps over here:
