SCOM 2012 - Discovering DRACs with Meaningful Names

  • Discovered DRACs are showing up in SCOM with their IP address as the name.  It appears from this post that a configuration change will allow the DRACs to be discovered and their sysName SNMP value will be used as their name.  However, this takes the form of RAC_ServiceTag.  Curious how folks are discovering their DRACs in SCOM and getting them settled in SCOM with meaningful names such as the DRAC's DNS name or even the host's DNS name.

  • UPDATE:  I didn't come up with an easy way to get the names to show up inside of SCOM vs the IP addresses.  However, I did use SCOM's command channel to call a PowerShell script which resolves the IP to the hostname then creates an alert email.
