Microsoft System Center Operations Manager for Multi-Hypervisor Nutanix Clusters

You can never live Prism but if your physical infrastruce you have to monitor and your Microsoft shop you don’t want multiple tools for your Ops team. Nutanix provides management packs that support using the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to monitor a Nutanix cluster. Nutanix provides two management packs:

Cluster Management Pack. This management pack collects information about software elements of a
cluster including Controller VMs, storage pools, and containers.

Hardware Management Pack. This management pack collects information about hardware elements of
a cluster including fans, power supplies, disks, and nodes.

The management packs collect information about software (cluster) elements through SNMP and hardware elements through ipmiutil and REST API calls and then package that information for SCOM to digest. SCOM can manage not only Nutanix Hyper-V clusters but, ESXi and AHV as well.

Customers can download the management pack thru the online portal. Support for SolarWinds, Nagios and Zenoss are available as well.
