Monitoring Windows 7 with Operations Manager

 

The Windows Client Monitoring Management Pack is built to detects, diagnose, and resolve hardware and software problems pertaining to Client 2000, XP, and Vista operating systems. Information and analysis on the issues that the system detected are collected by the MPs through an agent on the client machine, and sent to OpsMgr where this data is converted into health state, alerts (if need be) and processed for business critical and aggregate reports. The MP gives a clear picture of catastrophic failures in your mission critical machines, trend-based alerts of significant changes to computer groups, in-depth views of health of individual machines, and reports that provide a landscape view of the health of all monitored clients.

Stefan Stranger’s Weblog – Manage your IT Infrastructure : Direct access to the MP Guides and MP Catalog from the Ops Console

 

Today I got a question from a customer asking where they could find the MP Guides if they are downloading the MP’s directly from within the Ops Console in OpsMgr 2007 R2. I told them they could better go to the MP Catalog website and download the msi and read the Guide from the extracted msi.

But there is another faster way using the MP Guides online. But then I thought about an even better way using My Workspace and creating a Webpage View.
