Summary

It is a rare IT environment that consists solely of Windows servers and workstations, which are in MOM’s sweet spot for management. Routers and switches are critical components of all but the smallest of networks that support Windows servers, Unix hosts, or other platforms. Using out-of-the-box functionality, SNMP traps and syslog messages can be brought into MOM and presented in the Operator console. This chapter teaches the procedures you need to do this. Third-party products will provide a richer integration experience but have a commensurate cost. By using native capabilities you effectively extend your MOM operations management environment beyond the Windows space with no out-of-pocket cost and little invested time.
