Connecting to System Center Operations Manager and Enabling SNMP Notifications

If you have a license for the Active Directory Health module and are using Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), you can choose to deploy the Quest® Active Administrator® management pack, which establishes a connection to SCOM and enables Active Directory Health alerts from the Active Directory Health Analyzer agent to appear in the Operations Manager Monitoring pane under the Quest Active Administrator folder. You can also enable SNMP alert notifications.

NOTE: After you complete the configuration wizard, if you need to make any changes or if you skip this page, you can configure the SCOM connection and SNMP alert notifications in the Active Administrator console (Configuration | SCOM and SNMP Settings).See Configuring SCOM and SNMP Settings in the Active Administrator User Guide. You also can restart the configuration wizard (Start | AA Configuration Wizard). Page through the wizard until you reach the System Center Operations Manager and SNMP Notification page.
NOTE: After you complete the configuration wizard, you can edit the System Center Operations Manager and SNMP Notification to configure which Active Directory Health Analyzer alerts to push to SCOM and SNMP. See Pushing alerts to System Center Operations Manager and SNMP managers in the Active Administrator User Guide.
NOTE: If the check box is not selected, the Remove management pack check box is visible. Use this check box to remove the management pack.
