Key Monitoring Scenarios

Updated: November 22, 2010

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007

After you import the management pack, wait at least one hour for the management pack to gather data, monitoring data will begin to appear in the Operations Manager 2007 Operations console. In the Monitoring pane, the System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 (DPM) node and child nodes contain views for DPM.

Computer Attributes

The DPM Management Pack collects the following attribute for computers:

  • Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager

DPM Server Groups

The DPM Management Pack includes the following computer group:

  • Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 Servers

Alert Rule Group

The rules in the Alert rule group are identical to all the System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) alerts that might require a user action, so that an administrator can monitor data protection for multiple DPM servers from the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 Operations console. The Management Pack filters out alerts that do not require user action.

The severity of the alert in DPM determines the severity of the mirrored alert in the Operations Manager Operations console.

  • Warning alerts in DPM are warning alerts in Operations Manager.

  • Error alerts in DPM are critical errors in Operations Manager.

  • Information alerts in DPM are information alerts in Operations Manager.

  • An inactive alert in DPM, the alert becomes an inactive alert in Operations Manager and is not displayed.

The product knowledge can be found in the Alert Details of the Operations Manager Operations console. This product provides comprehensive information about each alert, including a summary of the problem, possible causes, resolutions, and additional information sources.
