  1. Enable FIPS complaince in libraries for Linux Agents

    Please see forum thread here:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/57f86c23-9eac-409c-8bbc-6ad550c524e5/unixlinux-universal-agent-and-fips-compliance?forum=operationsmanagerunixandlinux

    Per the MSFT team member Steve Weber:

    I can reproduce this in our lab and we do not currently support FIPS and there is no workaround without disabling FIPS on the system. If this is something you want supported with the SCOM UNIX/Linux agents, please open a ticket with Microsoft support and have them create a 'Design Change Request' [DCR] so that it gets escalated and pushed back to our team.

    I will also pass this post on to our management so they have reference but the DCR will be your quickest results.

  2. Monitor that a Unix Server is not reachable

    In the Windows Monitoring the Management Pack has two different monitors, which monitor "heartbeat failure" and "Computer not reachable".
    In the Unix/Linux monitor you only provide a heartbeat monitor that run automatically the Task for an ICMP ping. We also need the monitorinformation if the System is not reachable because this is an important information for the Unix/Linux admins.

  7. Enquiry of monitoring Linux server through SNMP Trap

    Could SCOM 2012 monitor the Linux server (CentOS) through SNMP Trap without installing agent on Linux server?

    Could we check whether the below MIBs files already included in the existing SCOM server?
    - The HOST-RESOURCES_MIB
    - Apache web server configuration and status values (APACHE2-MIB).
    - disk I/O (UCD-DISKIO-MIB)

  8. % used Memory Monitor

    include two new monitors in all of the UX based MP's that does monitoring of memory by percentage used. monitors can be disabled by default. monitor A would calculate percentage free (free / total). Monitor B would calculate the same but include cache

  9. Offer Baselining Monitors For Non-Windows Devices

    It would be nice if we could create baselining monitors on any rule that's generating performance data in Operations Manager. Currently, you can only create baselining monitors for Windows Performance Counters.

  10. view to see servers in resource pool monitoring unix linux

    Currently admins/users have to look at the Unix/Linux Computers view to see which Resource Pool is monitoring them, and then look at the Resource Pool view, and properties of the resource pool to see its members and the servers responsible for those unix computers.
    It'd be great if there were a view that simply showed the management servers in the pool responsible for the unix/linux agent in ONE view. and not have to click in 3 different places to connect the dots.

  11. Fix Unix Log Monitoring during Maintenance Mode

    You have unix/linux log monitoring deployed on a server.
    You put the server on maintenance mode for x hours.

    <During Maintenance Mode>
    During x hours, there are lines that written to the log which would trigger the alert. But alert not triggered since it's in maintenance mode.
    </>
    <Maintenance Mode Over/>
    Log monitoring policy kicks-in. It scans the log file again using the counter BEFORE the maintenance mode. The lines that written during maintenance mode got scanned and triggered an alert. This should not happened.

    Current workaround:
    - Clean the counter file after maintenance mode over.

  14. Enable the MySQL MP's to support Clusters

    The introduced functions for monitoring MySQL is a great step in the right direction, but to be of any real value in the business this functionality needs to be extended with support for Monitoring MySQL Clusters.

    The Pack should discover if the node is configured as a cluster member, identify the remaining partners, and adopt monitoring to expose cluster related health details.
