You can deploy and configure software to forward EdgeSight alerts to Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM) and to monitor the health of EdgeSight Servers. The required software includes the Citrix EdgeSight Management Pack and EdgeSight Server 5.2 or later. Currently, only alerts generated by EdgeSight for XenApp agents can be forwarded.
The Citrix EdgeSight Management Pack, along with the EdgeSight alert actions feature, facilitates alert forwarding from an EdgeSight Server to SCOM. The Management Pack also includes monitors, rules, views, and tasks for monitoring the health of Citrix EdgeSight Servers.
When you import the EdgeSight Management Pack, it discovers all EdgeSight Servers and implements rules that receive and display the alerts forwarded by the EdgeSight Server.
EdgeSight Management Pack includes the following features:
The EdgeSight alert actions feature is used to forward EdgeSight Alerts to the Operations Manager Root Management Server. The Forward to Microsoft System Center Operations Manager alert action allows you to specify an alert name, a root management server, and a set of credentials for authentication to that server.
