System Requirements for EdgeSight Alert Integration with System Center Operations Manager

Oct 16, 2015

Citrix EdgeSight alert integration with System Center Operations Manager requires the Citrix EdgeSight MP file that you import into Operations Manager from the Operations Console.

Operations Manager 2007 Server

To use the Management Pack, you must be running Operations Manager 2007. The Operations Manager 2007 minimum hardware and software requirements can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/operationsmanager/en/us/system-requirements.aspx.

You must import the Citrix XenApp Management Pack v5.0 into Operations Manager prior to importing the EdgeSight Management Pack. The XenApp Management Pack is available on the XenApp Server Enterprise and Platinum Edition DVD or by download at www.citrix.com.

It is important to import the XenApp Management Pack files into Operations Manager in the following order:

  1. Citrix.Library.mp
  2. Citrix.PresentationServer.mp

The Citrix.LicenseServer.mp is also part of the XenApp Management Pack, but is not required by the EdgeSight Management Pack.

Note: Be sure to configure a Citrix Administrator Account “Run As Profile” with the Citrix administrator credentials after your import Citrix.PresentationServer.mp. Failure to complete this step can prevent Citrix servers from appearing in the Citrix Managed Servers group. See the Management Pack for Operations Manager 2007 Administrator's Guide, for XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2008 at http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX116421 for detailed instructions.

Ensure the Citrix servers are properly discovered and monitored in both EdgeSight and Operations Manager.

EdgeSight Server

Installation procedures are provided in as described in How to Deploy the Operations Manager 2007 Agent Using the Agent Setup Wizard (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb309515.aspx).
