Configure SCOM monitoring

Lync Server 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-04

After migrating to Microsoft Lync Server 2013, you must complete a few tasks to configure Lync Server 2013 to work with System Center Operations Manager.

  • Apply Lync Server 2010 updates to a server elected to manage the central discovery logic.

  • Update the central discovery candidate server registry key.

  • Configure your primary System Center Operations Manager management server to override the candidate central discovery node.

Instructions for carrying out each of these tasks are provided below.

Apply Lync Server 2010 updates to a server elected to manage the central discovery logic.
  1. Elect a server that has the System Center Operations Manager agent files installed and is configured as a candidate discovery node.

  2. Apply Lync Server 2010 updates to this server. See the topic Apply Lync Server 2010 updates.

Update the central discovery candidate server registry key.
  1. On the server elected to manage the central discovery logic, open a Windows PowerShell command window.

  2. At the command line, type the following:

    New-Item -Path "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Real-Time Communications\Health"
    
    New-Item -Path "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Real-Time Communications\Health\CentralDiscoveryCandidate"
    

    noteNote:
    Whenever you edit the registry, you may experience an error that the command failed if the registry key already exists. If you experience this, you can safely ignore the error.
Configure your primary System Center Operations Manager management server to override the candidate central discovery watcher node.
  1. On a computer where the System Center Operations Manager console has been installed, expand Management Pack Objects and then select Object Discoveries.

  2. Click Change Scope...

  3. From the Scope Management Pack Objects page, select LS Discovery Candidate.

  4. Override the LS Discovery Candidate Effective Value to the name of the candidate server elected in the earlier procedure.

Lastly, to finalize your changes, restart the health service on the System Center Operations Manager Root Management Server.
