Windows Server Internet Information Services 2000 and 2003 Management Pack Guide for Operations Manager 2007

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007

The Windows Server Internet Information Services 2000 and 2003 Management Pack Guide includes Management Pack overviews, deployment procedures, and scenarios for monitoring Windows Server Internet Information Services (IIS) 2000 and 2003 with Operations Manager 2007. IIS 2000 refers to IIS 5.0 and IIS 2003 refers to IIS 6.0. For more information about Operations Manager 2007, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=79243.

The Windows Server Internet Information Services 2000 and 2003 Management Packs include substantial sets of monitors, rules, views, tasks, knowledge, and reports for monitoring the version of IIS included with Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003. This enables Operations Manager 2007 to monitor IIS 2000 and 2003 and their related services for availability, configuration, health, and performance and to display the respective data in ways that are timely and helpful in maintaining uninterrupted service of IIS and the functionality it provides.

The monitors and rules the Management Packs for IIS 2000 and 2003 provide enable Operations Manager 2007 to monitor the following IIS object types:

  • IIS Server Role

  • IIS Web, FTP, NNTP, and SMTP servers

  • IIS Web and FTP Sites

  • IIS NNTP and SMTP Virtual Servers

ASP.NET monitoring is documented in the ASP.NET 2.0 Management Pack Guide. The latest version of Management Pack guides can be found at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83259.
