Where can I download System Center Operations Manager Management Pack

I am new to the Brocade community forums. What brings me here today is my search for the Microsoft SCOM Management Pack for Brocade SAN Management. Have I come to the right place?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Where can I download System Center Operations Manager Management Pack

There is a chapter on Third party tools in the help documentation where the topic "Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) plug-in" is covered.

information about privileges, refer to “User Privileges” on page 1495.

The SCOM plug-in allows fabric inventory information collected by the Management application to

be displayed on the Microsoft SCOM console. The SCOM plug-in uses the SCOM SDK services to

extend the SCOM console and present fabric inventory information. The SCOM plug-in serves

dynamic HTML pages to the SCOM console.

The SCOM console displays the folloiwng information:

Fabric and switch details

Re: Where can I download System Center Operations Manager Management Pack

Hi ssavla - thank you for the response. However, this does not tell me where to download it...

 

From what you pasted, where can I obtain the XML file? Is there a download location online I can obtain the XML file(s)?

 

 Make sure you import the Management application management pack

(Management_Application_Name.FabricView.xml) to the SCOM Server prior to registering the

SCOM Plug-in. The management pack is located in the following directory: Install_Home\scom.

 

Thanks in advance.
