System Center Operations Manager 2012 Monitoring Pack for Windows Server 2012 Remote Access

Microsoft recently released a Monitoring Pack for System Center Operations Manager 2012 specifically targets the Remote Access role in Windows Server 2012. With this new monitoring pack, a systems management engineer can monitor a Windows Server 2012 server with the remote access role installed for the following conditions:

DirectAccess

  • Network interface connection and settings issues
  • IPv6 transition protocol configuration
  • DoS, spoof, and replay attack heuristics
  • IPsec state
  • DNS and management server configuration
  • Underlying service status
  • OTP-related heuristics

Remote Access and Site-to-Site VPN

  • Connection failures
  • Improper configuration
  • Hardware device and IPsec related failures
  • Monitoring of performance counters and instrumentation

This management pack leverages PowerShell cmdlets such as Get-RemoteAccess, Get-DAMultisite, and Get-RemoteAccessHealth. As such, only Windows Server 2012 is supported by this management pack. You can download the System Center Operations Manager 2012 Monitoring Pack for the Windows Server 2102 Remote Access role here.
