I don't understand many of the SCOM alerts
I am implementing a SCOM environment across several Windows servers with no special options. I have downloaded & installed several Managemenet packs and am now seeing many alerts at deep system levels that I can't understand and don't know how to resolve. The messages and knowledge are quite cryptic and seem to assume that I have a deep understanding of the O/S and or applications. Is there a source library to translate these cryptic messages into something more useful. I would like to understand what I am being told but I feel like an illiterate... ANy help would be greatly appreciated..

Hi There is an OpsMgr by example series which runs through a lot of the management packs: http://www.systemcentercentral.com/tabid/150/tag/Blog+ByExample/Default.aspx And an Operations Manager 101: http://blogs.technet.com/b/kevinholman/archive/2010/09/02/operations-manager-101-download.aspx But yes, Operations Manager does assume that administrators do understand the variety of microsoft applications that are monitored - it is a tool that helps identify problems which experienced administrators can then act on. Perhaps for the applications the various application teams (SQL, Exchange etc) can help. Cheers GrahamView OpsMgr tips and tricks at http://systemcentersolutions.wordpress.com/
