SCOM 2012 R2 Ubuntu Linux Agent

 

 

So I wanted to monitor my Ubuntu 12.04 linux box with SCOM. I had read other places that they were able to do it with the Universal Linux Monitoring Management Pack (Microsoft.Linux.Universal.Monitoring) and Universal Linux (Debian) Discovery (Microsoft.Linux.UniversalD.1) without any problems, but when I tried to discover and install the agent through the console on the server I ran into this error:

Message:

The problem is that it tries to use "startproc" which does not work in Ubuntu. the solution I found that worked for me requires a few steps:

  1. remove the scx that the console tried to install:
    apt-get remove scx

     

  2. ​copy the "scx-1.4.1-304.universald.1.x64.deb" file from your management server located at "<InstallDrive>:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\AgentManagement\UnixAgents\DownloadedKits" to your Ubuntu box. I put it in the "/tmp" directory, but you can put it wherever you want just as long as you execute it from that directory
     
  3. Install the "scx-1.4.1-304.universald.1.x64.deb" using dpkg from the comand line with the "--force-overwrite --force-overwrite-dir" switches from the directory you put it in:
    dpkg --install scx-1.4.1-304.universald.1.x64.deb --force-overwrite --force-overwrite-dir
     
  4. edit the "/etc/init.d/scx-cimd" file (I use nano for this). 
     
  5. Delete (or rem out with "#") "./etc/sysconfig/language" at or around line 69
     
  6. Change the line "startproc -p $SCX_CIMD_PIDFILE $SCX_CIMD_BIN" at or around line 73 to read only "$SCX_CIMD_BIN"
     
  7. Delete (or rem out with "#") "rc_status -v" at or around line 74
     
  8. Delete (or rem out with "#") "if [ $INIT_STYLE == S ]; then rc_exit; else exit $RETVAL; fi" which was the last line of the script for me.
     
  9. Run the command "/etc/init.d/scx-cimd start"

​Now that that is all done you can go back to your console and discover it and tell it to manage it.
