Introduction to CLARiiON Management Pack for SCOM
CLARiiON's initial integration with SCOM is through a Windows host that is setup as a CLARiiON monitoring server. This monitoring server retrieves CLARiiON Events, which is established through the creation of a Navisphere template, into the Monitoring servers Windows Application Event Log. Once an associated event is presented to the monitoring servers Application Event Log the CLARiiON SCOM pack will determine if the event should be raised as an alert into SCOM. For this initial release of the CLARiiON SCOM pack there are a selected number of CLARiiON Events that will raise a SCOM alert. These 89 CLARiiON Events are a subset of the total CLARiiON Navisphere Alerts that are available. They have been selected because they are the most commonly seen alerts and also provide actionable details that are associated with the alert.
These 89 alerts are as follows: (NOTE: These CLARiiON Event Numbers are subject to change with each version of the CLARiiON Management Pack)

Installing SCOM Agent on a CXMonitoringStation
There are a few different ways manage the CXMonitoringStation from SCOM:
Microsoft recommends using the default method which will push the SCOM Agent onto the host that will be monitored from the SCOM server. If for some reason ports are blocked that are needed to push the SCOM Agent onto the monitoring server then you'll have to install the SCOM Agent onto the monitoring server via CD or network share. In the steps below I'll show you how to install the SCOM Agent by pushing the Agent from the SCOM server onto the monitoring server.
This will begin the installation of the SCOM Agent onto the CXMonitoringStation.

Importing CLARiiON Management Pack on SCOM Server
SCOM Server has several default management packs that comes with the installation of the SCOM server itself. The reason for this is so other third party management packs can leverage the work that exists within the default management packs in order to prevent duplicate work. The CLARiiONMP.mp file is the name of the management pack that needs to be imported into SCOM server in order to for SCOM Administrators to begin reaping the benefits of CLARiiON Alerts within SCOM.

If you are upgrading from and earlier version of the management pack you can just re-import the new management pack and it will override the old management pack without issues. Once the management pack is imported you can begin testing the SCOM pack to ensure it is working properly.
I have installed the latest management pack marked as vnx scom management pack released late april. However, it does not login to the CX300 or CX320 system i have. the error is 499 user authentication failed, check user/password/scope.
I have made sure the user/password are correct on the config manager.
I could not set the scope as it is not mentioned anywhere on the gui of the MP config manager or the xml document for the service.
I appreciate you help on this
