We have SCOM 2012 SP1 running on Windows Server 2008 R2, I have installed the Dell Server Management Pack 5.0.1 and imported the Server (In-band) Monitoring feature.
Since installing this feature we are unable to create any dashboards or performance views in SCOM. I am trying to create a dashboard looking at specific ports on a network device using a performance widget, but when you try to search for the specific port to monitor, the search times out and reports an error. The error received is:
This only started happening after importing the Server (In-band) Monitoring feature into the MP. As soon as I remove the Dell Server Management Pack 5.0.1 from our SCOM server, I am able to search for specific ports etc without issue.
Has anyone experience this issue or similar issue? If so, is there any fix for this?
Thanks in advance.
Server MP 5.0 will not affect the SCOM functionality.
Any way can you please specify the problem steps clearly like
After selecting new dash board view and performance widget,
what is the Group/Object you selected ?
Under Object what are the properties you selected?
Please mention the steps so that i can work on repro and get back to you
Here are the exact steps I am taking:
Create a new Dashboard View with a Grid Layout
Click the option called 'Click to add widget....' which runs the 'New Dashboard and Widget Wizard'
Choose to create a new 'Performance Widget'
Give the Widget a name and description then clicking next
Here is where the problem is. I click on the button to browse for a particular object to monitor. When the new window appears, I select 'Groups and Objects' and then enter a specific port name which is located on a switch currently being monitored by SCOM. For example 'Port-1.5'. I then click search, but after approx 3 minutes of searching I receive the error message stated above. i have tried various different ports and interfaces etc but the same error appears every time.
This started happening as soon as I installed the Dell MP. As soon as I remove the MP I can search for objects successfully again.
Please let me know if you need any further information.
Server MP 5.0.1 will not monitor the switches. I am unable to work on repro as we won't support monitoring for switches. Can you tell me how you are monitoring the switches.
I think you have misunderstood. I am not using the Dell MP to monitor switches. I am using the built-in network monitoring feature within SCOM 2012 to monitor switches. But once the Dell MP is installed I am unable to add any new ports or interfaces to monitor as explained in my previous posts (using the built in network monitoring).
