  • MOM 2005 Exchange MP Alerting

    Hi All

    I'm trying to get alerting for exchange 2003 going with MOM 2005. There's a bit of basic config info around but not much about this. Yes I have read the MS doco. I have a few prolems unfortunately. Happy to take answers to one and split them out if people want. In priority order:

    1. I don't have any alert rules under my exchange 2003 subsection in the exchange management pack. Do u have to set these manually and if so how?

    2. Its a cluster with 2 exchange virtual servers - when I try and re-run the MP config wizard and add test mailboxes to evs1 and evs2 it tells me I can't because it can't contact the service controller on those machines. As far as i know the only thing that's changed would be the usual patches.

    Its a bit urgent - much TIA all.

    To test I've:
    - created a computer group with my test exchange box in it
    - created a rule group
    - created a new alert rule in that group
    In that rule under criteria I've set it to match alerts in the exchange 2003
    - created a new notification group with my username and email

    Then I dismount the store on the test server. In the operator console it only shows as an information event. I would expect it to be an alert and notify me.

      Uninstall and Reinstall the Exchange 2003 Management Pack.
      Something has gone very wrong somewhere in that installation...

      maybe you just installed the MSI and Forgot to import the MP ?
