While you’ve always had the ability to use MOM 2005 to monitor things like IIS and SQL for your Client Security servers, this management pack gives you the additional ability to monitor some key FCS services:
I should clarify; the management pack is installed in your MOM 2005 environment to extend existing MOM functionality, not on your FCS servers.
Of course, loading the management pack doesn’t impact how you’ll be monitoring your client computers. In other words, you won’t need to redeploy your implementation in order to add this additional monitoring functionality. You’ll continue to use the Client Security consoles you’re familiar with for your client monitoring. The Health Management pack is just for monitoring your FCS servers, not client computers. And just for environments that choose to implement a MOM 2005 monitoring solution. (notice, it’s a MOM 2005 management pack, not a SCOM management pack, just in case you were wondering “Hey, will this work with SCOM?”)
The FCS management pack is ready for download at this location: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0672b4ca-c6dc-4093-bae6-30eb1560a429&DisplayLang=en
