Install IBM V7000 Storage Management Pack in SCOM


1) Create a AD group (e.g IBM_V7000_Monitor) and add the SCOM service account in. Then link the AD group in the V7000 remote LDAP access.

2) Download the IBM Storage MP from IBM fix central then install it on the SCOM server. Choose custom installation to remove the unnecessary components. In my case, I only install the common and storwzize v7000.

3) Import the the MP in the SCOM console. For me, it is IBM.Storage.Common.mp and IBM.Storage.Storwize.7000.mp

4) Shorten the monitor computer discovery time by clicking the Microsoft SCOM Authoring pane, select ObjectDiscoveries for V7000, then in the Actions pane, selectOverrides > Override the Rule > For all objects of class: Window Computer.

5) Configure it

– Add the management server

c:\Program Files\IBM\Storage\Host\IBMStorageSCOM\bin>scomu.cmd –sc-set –server name localhost
Checking the connection to the management server…
The connection to the management server is OK
The connection to the management server is set

c:\Program Files\IBM\Storage\Host\IBMStorageSCOM\bin>scomu.cmd –sc-get
Management Server: localhost

– Add the V7000

c:\Program Files\IBM\Storage\Host\IBMStorageSCOM\bin>scomu.cmd –add -t storwize –ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx –authmode password –username jackie –password ******
Connecting to the device …
1 IBM Storwize V7000 is found.
cluster ID: 0000020XXXXXXXXX, code level: 6.4.1.4 (build 75.3.1303080000), location: local

The connection is OK.
Trying to add the connection…
The MonitorComputer object required by the storage system is not found in the ma
nagement server

(If you skipped the step 4, you may see the above error)

c:\Program Files\IBM\Storage\Host\IBMStorageSCOM\bin>sscomu.cmd –add -t storwize –ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx –authmode password –username jackie –password ******
Connecting to the device …
1 IBM Storwize V7000 is found.

Trying to add the connection…
The connection has been added.

c:\Program Files\IBM\Storage\Host\IBMStorageSCOM\bin>scomu.cmd –list
1 connections have been found.

6) Check it in the SCOM console

  1. Hi Jackie
    I’m trying to configure IBM Storage Management Pack for SCOM (2.2.1) and Storwize V3700.
    I have 2 servers – SCOM server (scom-tst) and management server (storagemon1)
    I performed steps ()
    1) created user (monitor group) on V7000
    2) install the agent on the management server storagemon1
    3) install the MP to the management server storagemon1
    4) copied the SDK Binaries folder on the management server storagemon1and checked the file SDKdir.cfg – the path is correct
    5) imported MP for V7000 and IBM system storage on SCOM server scom-tst

    but when I try to check the connection status i see error message :

    … bin> scomu.cmd – sc-get
    System Center configuration is missing

    or when i try to add storage:

    … \ bin> scomu.cmd – add-t storwize – ip – authmode password – username – password
    Connecting to the device …
    1 IBM Storwize V3700 is found.
    cluster ID: 000000C02020D2EA, code level: 7.3.0.3 (build 96.9.1406190000), location: local
    The connection is OK.
    Trying to add the connection …
    System Center configuration is missing

    or any other command
    …\ bin> scomu – sc-check
    System Center configuration is missing

    Tell me, please, what is wrong?
    What is System Center configuration – one file or several files or branch in the windows registry?

  2. I ran command “scomu.cmd –sc-set …” yesterday, but with same error – System Center configuration is missing.
    Today, i reinstalled MP and repeated steps, and i got connect to SCOM server,
