Send vCops Alerts to SCOM

Hi All,

In our shop the monitoring platform is SCOM. The virtualization team want to use vCops to drill deeper and stop configuring thousand of threshold. Our manager is ok with that but ask to send our alerts to SCOM, so the exploitation team can be alerted if something happens in the virtual environment. I heard that there is a way to create something with the orchestrator and send vCops alerts to SCOM. Is anybody know where to find some documentation on how to do that? Is there any other way of doing that?

Thanks for helping!

vC Ops could easily be configured to send SNMP traps to SCOM.  This is done in the Admin UI (go to https://<IP of UI VM>/admin and log in as admin).  There is a tab for SNMP and SMTP settings.

How about bringing SCOM functionality into vCOPS?

At the end you want to achieve a single management tool or is your manager particular about vCOPS working with SCOM?

Hi Abhilash,

Thanks for taking time to answer my question.

We know we can bring SCOM functionality into vCOPS but our exploitation team works with SCOM. Our management wants to keep it that way. The virtualization team do not want to use SCOM, they want to use vCops. This will be the management tool for the virtualization team, but all alerts needs to be send to SCOM. If there is no way to do it with vCops, we will need to do it with nworks and set thousands of stupid threshold. With SCOM and nworks we have 600 to 900 alerts per day, with vCops 10 to 20... We know it's a threshold issue, but with vCops we do not have to manage thresholds! So if we can send our alerts to SCOM, this would be perfect!

Thanks
