Windows Server Cluster Management Pack for Operations Manager 2007

Microsoft has updated the OpsMgr 2007 management pack for failover cluster management on Windows 2003 and Windows 2008:

“Some of the conditions monitored by this management pack are as follows:

  • Configuration or hardware issues that interfere with starting the Cluster service
  • Connectivity problems that affect communication between cluster nodes or between a node and a domain controller
  • Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) settings that affect the cluster; for example, permissions needed by the computer account that is used by the cluster
  • Configuration issues with the network infrastructure needed by the cluster; for example, issues with Domain Name System (DNS)
  • Issues with the availability of a cluster resource, such as a clustered file share
  • Issues with the cluster storage”

I’d suggest that you download, test and then deploy (after satisfactory testing) this ASAP if you’re running Hyper-V clusters that are managed by OpsMgr 2007.  I will be doing just that.
