MPs for Oracle, Black Berry and Red hat linux servers.
Hi, I am urgently looking for Managment packs for - Linux Server Red Hat, Oracle RAC Server,Oracle DB Servers (10g),Oracle Application Servers (12i)and Blackberry Servers. Can any body let me know the vendors who already have MPs for these or can develop them for us. What exactly is the licensing policy for those MPs???

As far as I know, there is one vendor providing the support for the applications listed above. Quest Software, they bought some of the companies which were developing extensions on top on MOM. So to support Linux, Blackberry and Oracle, they have the support. If you go to the SCOM Management Packs web site you can check it out. Hope that helps

Thanks a lot for the Reply. Any idea on comparision when it comes to NetIQ Managment Packs (AppManager7) and Quest Extnsions for SCOM 2007?

Yeah, I used to work with NetIQ solutions while ago, first of all, NetIQ doesn't have any SCOM Management Pack anymore, they are End of Life, NetIQ AppManager is a different monitoring platform, actually it does compete with SCOM, so moving with NetIQ AppManager would mean, set up a different monitoring platform with 2 servers (Database and Management Server) just to manage the Linux, BB and Oracle Servers, then you must setup a connection between SCOM and NetIQ using SNMP, what is not easy, so you would need to look at 2 consoles, manage different agents, bla, bla So you would end up managing 2 platforms, paying 2 platforms,2 consoles for different eventsand the way you would manage your environment would be more reactive than using a single tool. Quest extensions are agent-less and leverage the SCOM environment, this means no other servers are needed. So my opinion is leverage all the SCOM native management packs from 3rd party vendors when your customer is going/using SCOM, it would impact less and will be more cost efective. Normally all the SCOM extensions are license per server

Hi Raj, You should check out BridgeWays (www.bridgeways.ca) who have management packs for Oracle, MySQL, VMware, Jboss, and Apache for sale now and trials of Blackberry plus a few others available. They are also doing custom MP work for large corporate customer.s. Pricing is per socket or processor - they ask for this information when you sign up for a trial of their products. The interesting thing about BridgeWays (which is a Xandros company - the linux guys) is that they promote this single pane of glass theory so all their mp's work together to make management easy. - PMD -
