Configuring Microsoft SCOM 2012
The probe requires a Windows user account on the same domain as Microsoft SCOM 2012. This can be an existing user account or a new account.
The Probe for Microsoft SCOM 2012 uses Windows user accounts to authenticate the connection.
You must use the Microsoft SCOM
2012 Operations Console to assign the
Operations Manager Administrator user role to the user account
that you are using to run the probe.
You can also use Microsoft Active Directory
to create a group (for example,
Netcool Connectors) and user
login (for example,
netcool) for use by the probe. You can
then assign the
Operations Manager Administrator user
role to this group. This removes the need to specify values for the ConnectorUser, ConnectorPassword,
and ConnectorDomain properties in the properties
Consult your Microsoft documentation for instructions about how to create the type of user account that you require.
The connection between the probe and Microsoft SCOM 2012 is made over TCP and is secured using the Kerberos authentication mechanism provided by Microsoft Active Directory.
Configuring a subscription
After you have successfully installed, configured, and started the probe, use the Product Connector Subscription wizard in Microsoft SCOM 2012 to configure the automatic forwarding of alerts to the probe. Consult your Microsoft documentation for instructions about how to do this.
