Configuring SCOM and SNMP Settings

If you have a license for the Active Directory Health module and are using Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), you can deploy the Quest® Active Administrator® management pack, which establishes a connection to SCOM. If you are using an SNMP manager, you can configure the integration from the Active Administrator console. Once an alert manager has been configured, Active Directory Health alerts from the Active Directory Health Analyzer agent are displayed in the Operations Manager Monitoring pane under the Quest Active Administrator folder and in the SNMP Manager.

NOTE: After you complete the configuration, you can edit the System Center Operations Manager Notification to configure which Active Directory Health Analyzer alerts to push to SCOM or an SNMP manager. See Pushing alerts to System Center Operations Manager and SNMP managers.
Select Configuration | SCOM and SNMP Settings.
Optionally, select Forward alert events to SCOM server to forward alert events and to deploy the Quest Active Administrator management pack to the specified SCOM management server.
Optionally, select Enable SNMP notification and enter the IP address of the SNMP notification target computer.
Click Save.
