Configuring your installation to support SCOM

The SQLDM Management Pack requires that the SCOM agent has at least read access to the SQLDM Repository. Grant this access before installing the SQLDM MP and enabling discovery of any SQL Diagnostic Manager installed instances.

SQLDM MP also requires that a SCOM agent (version 2007 or above) be installed locally on each server where an instance of SQL Diagnostic Manager is present. If an agent is not already installed, then use the Discovery Wizard in the SCOM Console to push the agent installation.
