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

– 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 ******

The connection is OK.
Trying to add the connection…

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