Windows DHCP Management Pack Readme (for Windows 2000 Server)

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007

The Microsoft Windows Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Management Pack monitors the health of DHCP on computers that are running the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server operating system to improve the availability, performance, and security of your Windows environment.

This readme describes how to install the Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007. For more information about the Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack and how to use it, see the 2005 Windows Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Management Pack Guide at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=89240.

Before You Import the DHCP Management Pack

Before you import the Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack, you must install the updated Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 Backward Compatibility Management Pack, 6.0.5000.1. You can download the Backward Compatibility Management Pack at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=89473.

noteNote
If you do not install the updated Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 Backward Compatibility Management Pack before you install the Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack, your installation of the DHCP Management Pack will fail.

Supported Applications

The Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack monitors computers that are running Windows 2000 Server. For the Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack to function optimally, your computers must meet the following requirements:

Each DHCP server must be managed by System Center Operations Manager 2007.

noteNote
You can run only one localized version of a converted management pack at a time. To use a version of the management pack for a different language, uninstall the management pack, and then install the version of the management pack for the language that you want.

Security Considerations

The Windows 2000 Server DHCP Management Pack is not using DHCP Action Account; it is using Default Action Account.  You will need to use an admin Action Account as the Default Action Account for DHCP 2000 agents.

For more information, see the 2005 Windows Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Management Pack Guide at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=89240.
