Getting started with Management Pack for SCOM

Install Management Pack for SCOM by importing the ActiveRoles.SCOM.MP.xml file into System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). You can install this Management Pack on the following SCOM versions:

  • System Center Operations Manager 2016

  • System Center Operations Manager 2019

Monitoring Active Roles Administration Service with Management Pack for SCOM

This section describes the processing rules that Management Pack for SCOM uses to monitor the availability and health of the Active Roles Administration Service. These include the following:

  • General response

  • Replication monitoring

  • Monitoring of connection to configuration database

  • Monitoring of Dynamic Group-related operations

  • Monitoring of Group Family-related operations

  • Internal error

  • Critical error on startup

  • License system failure

Monitoring of general response and replication is performed via custom, script-based processing rules. Those rules run on a scheduled basis, analyzing information returned by the scripts and raising an appropriate event if an error is detected. The schedule is stored as part of rule configuration data, and can be adjusted by managing rule properties in the Operations Manager console.

General response - Script

This rule uses a script to check the responsiveness of the Administration Service by periodically issuing a simple request to the Service. By default, this rule is scheduled to run every 10 minutes. The schedule can be adjusted by managing rule properties in the Operations Manager console.

General response - Alert

This rule generates an alert when the General response script detects that the Administration Service is unavailable.

Possible causes of the alert include:

  • The Administration Service is not running.

  • The Administration Service is not configured properly.

  • The Administration Service has encountered a critical error.

  • The administration database is unavailable.
