Create Quest Event-o-Pedia Online Event Search View in SCOM

Quest software has a nice online website that allows easy searching or browsing of events. While it contains almost all windows events, it also contains events from VMWare and Juniper. I thought this would be a nice little utility to have in a SCOM view, so I created a SCOM webpage view with the advanced search. Here's how you do it.

The webpage:

 Open SCOM, go to Monitoring, right click the top Monitoring View, New, Web Page View

Enter a name and the link, click ok.

SCOM Agent Supported in SCSM 2012 SP1

System Center 2012 – Operations Manager
System Center 2012 – Operations Manager agents were not supported with System Center 2012 – Service Manager. However, the agent that is automatically installed by System Center 2012 – Service Manager SP1 is compatible with System Center 2012 – Operations Manager and System Center 2012 – Operations Manager SP1.  After Service Manager Setup completes, you must manually configure the agent to communicate with the Operations Manager management server.
To validate that the Operations Manager Agent was installed, open Control Panel and verify that the Operations Manager Agent is present. To manually configure the Operations Manager agent, see Configuring Agents.
You can upgrade Service Manager servers in the presence of an System Center 2012 – Operations Manager console.
