Updated: System Center Monitoring Pack for Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 (Converted)

  • I recommend monitoring your SCCM environment with SCOM.
  • Gives great information about health, performance and status.
  • Get Email alert if a Task Sequence failes.

The release announcement can be found here:

Changes in this release:

  • Consolidation Event Rules have been disabled to prevent the generation of false alerts.
  • Operating system architecture detection logic was updated to determine 64-bit operating systems.
  • You no longer have to run the SQL Server query to clean up the localizedtext tables as part of the post-installation cleanup
  • Scripts that target site database servers now retrieve time values directly from servers running instances of SQL Server instead of site servers to avoid time-zone discrepancies.
  • Site hierarchy discovery now succeeds even if a site or component server does not have a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) configured.
  • The AlertLevel property can now be overridden, giving you control over the severity level.
  • All monitors and rules are now public.
  • The "ConfigMgr 2007 Collection Evaluations Tasks" script has been updated to let you monitor a collection that has a NULL StartTime value.The "ConfigMgr 2007 Collection Evaluations Tasks" script now uses CollectionID instead of Collection Name to track collection tasks.
Biggest change is the Consolidation Event Rules change as this should mean a much less noisy MP out of the box.

It's also great that all monitors and rules are now public, allowing for greater control with overrides.

Due to changes in naming convention, this update is now referred to as the “System Center Monitoring Pack for Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 (Converted)”. You can download the new release here.
