1 Introduction and Requirements

The Microsoft Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) Connector (version 1.0.5.2.0) integrates Oracle Enterprise Manager with Microsoft SCOM 2007 through web services, enabling you to exchange alert information between the two systems.

Connector Features

The Oracle Management Connector for Microsoft SCOM enables you to forward Enterprise Manager alerts to SCOM and receive Enterprise Manager alerts raised by SCOM. This ensures that the two systems are always synchronized, providing administrators with current information about their entire data center.

The connector supports the following features:

The following sections explain how the connector handles SCOM alerts and polls the SCOM web service.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Alerts Transmitted to SCOM Events

Whenever an alert is triggered in Oracle Enterprise Manager, the SCOM Connector can automatically create or update an alert in SCOM. You can use Notification Rules to specify the set of alerts for which alerts must be created, and the alert severity for which this should happen.

After the connector creates an alert in SCOM, any subsequent change of the alert severity is propagated to Microsoft SCOM. When the severity of the alert changes to Clear in Oracle Enterprise Manager, the corresponding alert is closed in SCOM.
