Using SCOM to monitor Enterprise Vault
The Enterprise Vault Management Pack contains rules that enable SCOM to monitor critical Enterprise Vault events in the Application Event Log.
You must already have a working Microsoft SCOM installation before you can install the Enterprise Vault Management Pack.
It is also possible to use SCOM to monitor all the alerts that are on the Monitoring tab in Site Properties. To do so, you start by enabling the monitoring in Site Properties.
Those alerts are written as critical events to the Application Event Log. There are SCOM rules defined, and enabled by default, to monitor those same events in the Event Log.
Setting up monitoring for an Enterprise Vault server
This section assumes that you have some familiarity with SCOM administration. See the SCOM documentation if you need help with using SCOM.
To set up monitoring:
The Enterprise Vault SCOM Management Pack defines many rules for Enterprise Vault monitoring, some of which are enabled by default and some of which are disabled. Review the rules and enable or disable as required.
Note that some SCOM rules concern events that are themselves enabled by the Enterprise Vault Administration Console. In the case of these events, they must be enabled in the Administration Console.
