I´m evaluating your management pack for VMWare, version 188.8.131.524 with required overrides for SCOM2007 R2 184.108.40.2062.
I´m trying to figure out how to disable monitoring of specific virtual machines but cannot put it together. I´ve read KB1553, but it doesn´t match my reality. For example there is no discovery called “SV102LS”.
I found this thread:viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10277
...which maybe is more relevant, however there are some things I don´t get:
1. There seem to be three classes named “VM”, the first one contains each monitored host, the second one contains objects named “VM0, VM1, VM2….” for each monitored host, and the third one is empty. (I´ve set VMsPerLargeScaleGroup=1).
2. Even if the second class mentioned above contains all monitored VMs, there is no way for me to distinguish them from each other because the objects do not have an attribute which represents the given name for the VM in vCenter.
3. I found another class, “VMGUEST Virtual Machine”, which contains all monitored and unmonitored guests in all clusters, but if I try to override discovery “nworks Stage 4 - Virtual Machine discovery” the class VM is suggested, not “VMGUEST..”.
4. I´ve also seen the thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14939
, but I guess I could create the group myself if I only knew which class to use.
So, how do I proceed? In practice I would like to create a dynamic group with all VMs names matching a wildcard and override a discovery for this group.
