New MP: System Center 2012 Monitoring Pack for Windows Server Backup

There is a new management pack on the horizon. For those who use Windows Server Backup they can now monitor it with SCOM 2012 or SCOM 2007 R2. Unfortunately it only supports Backup feature on Windows Server 2012. The documentation with the MP scattered and doesn’t offer much information. In fact Windows Server 2012 in the documentation is mentioned with its codename Windows Server 8. Also I do not have any idea why SCCM 2012 is also mentioned as required software. Anyway the MP just monitor several events in the event log:

  • Backup cancelled
  • Backup failed
  • Backup failed due to snapshot
  • Backup partially succeeded
  • Backup succeeded with skipped files
  • Recovery failed
  • Recovery succeeded with warnings

 

The MP and the two page guide you can download from here.
