Monitoring ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 via OpsMgr 2012 SP1 1

This post will describe the setup that is needed in order for your OpsMgr 2012 SP1 environment to monitor your ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 site.
First download the MP via this URL

Execute the installer and you will end up with 4 files:

  • EULA.rtf

Import the 3 Management Pack Files for ConfigMgr.

So go the Administration tab –> Management Packs –> choose the Add button from disk.

Then make an Override Management Pack for this MP!

After importing and installing you get a new monitoring view (System Center 2012 Configuration Manager)

For the Configuration Manager monitoring pack to discover objects, you must turn on Agent Proxy on every site server except for the primary site and the central administration site.

It might take some time before your ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 components appear in the OpsMgr 2012 SP1 environment…

After that is done, you can go back to the monitoring tab and choose under SCCM 2012.
Hierarchy Diagram. This will give you a diagram over your SCCM site.

Any alerts (RED X’s) can be clicked and you can drill down to your problem. The MP looks very good and complete.

Be sure to read the manual, a lot of rules are disabled by default. Also performance monitoring is disabled by default.

    I have been monitoring my SCCM infrastructure with SCOM and everything is reporting back with exception of the clients. All Config Mgr clients still report as not monitored. It looks as though the monitor is enabled. Any thoughts?
