Typically, a single eG manager can monitor up to 3000 components/devices. In large IT infrastructures, where tens of thousands of components are to be monitored, multiple eG managers are common-place. To ensure the scalability of the eG Universal MP in such environments, a dedicated eG SCOM connector setup is required for every eG manager.
Figure 127 : Integrating multiple managers with SCOM
The following configuration guidelines need to be followed for this specific case.
- Configure the same SDK user account in all connectors.
- Configure a different manager ID for every connector.
- The eG management pack which gets installed on the SCOM server will be common for all connectors. The configuration tool automatically determines whether/not multiple connectors are configured on the SCOM server. If some other connector is already using the eG management pack, the tool will skip the import/delete operation for the eG management pack.
If two/more managers that are to be integrated with SCOM have IC/aggregate tests with the same names, then before integrating these managers with SCOM, make sure that these common tests report the same measures – i.e., the names, functionality, and the count of measures should be the same.
