Veeam MP 6 - Veeam Collector Heartbeat

Veeam Logoby felyjos » Sat Aug 10, 2013 6:32 pm

Hello,

I have Veeam management pack 6.0 installed on SCOM 2007
In the Veeam Collectors > Collector Heartbeat I see only the server hosting the Veeam Virtualization Extensions for System Center Service...The four other collectors are not seen.

Under Veeam Collectors > _Collector Service Status I see all collectors.

Did I miss something?

Thanks,
Dom

Hi Dom,

Some of the discovery schedules in our MP are long - at least one hour, sometimes several hours, or even once per day.....this is Microsoft's Best Practice rule for application discovery.
So sometimes you do have to wait several hours for at least the initial discovery for applications (such as Veeam Collector).

And the discovery of the Collector Heartbeat object actually runs in the agent on the Veeam Extensions Service Server - because this is where the heartbeat is monitored for all Collectors.
This discovery is scheduled to run once per hour. It is controlled by discovery rule "Veeam Virtualization Extensions for VMware Topology discovery".

If you want to force discovery to run, you can restart the Systems Center Management service (SCOM Health Service) on the server where Veeam Extensions Service is installed. Restarting the SCOM Health Service forces all (unsynchronized) discoveries to run.

Hope that helps - let me know how it goes!

Hi Alec,

Veeam Extensions Service Server is running only on one server or should it be on several servers (collectors?)

Thanks,
Dom

Hi Dom,

You should only have one Veeam Extensions Service server - this is the one service that manages all your multiple Collectors.

Cheers

Hi Alec,

Thanks for this clarification as it was in the Collector Servers folder I was confused but I see it says _Collector Service Status this will be okay for mt Mgmt...
