For testing purposes I removed a physical disk from a logical disk array.
This resulted in the following message in syslog:
- Code: Select all
Dec 8 13:55:24 esxtest cmaidad: Physical Drive Status Change: Slot 0 SCSI Bus 2 Target 1. Status is now Failed.
I configured syslogd to sent syslog events to our nworks management server. This also works, the following is logged into the nworks eventlog:
However the alert does not appear in SCOM.
I think this is because the match is not made correctly (because the documentation talks about "hpasmd" as source, while this event has "cmaidad" as source)
Snippet from the documentation:
Was this functionality designed for an older version of the HP insight manager agents? We are running agent version 8.2.5 as recommended by VMware (http://www.vmware.com/support/esx25/doc/sys_mgmt_links.html)
Any suggestions to get monitoring working is greatly appreciated.
