Monitoring DHCP on Windows 2008 R2

A special thanks to Zaki Maksyutov from Microsoft who posted this in the forums:

A few rules of current version of DHCP MP do not work well on Server 2008 R2. There are two options here:

1. Disable DHCP MP for Server 2008 R2 computers and wait for a new DHCP MP release for Server 2008 R2

2. Disable rules which do not work correctly for Server 2008 R2 computers (other DHCP monitoring might still work correctly)

In order to disable DHCP MP for Server 2008 R2 computers:

1. Open Operations Console

2. Go to Authoring pane->Management Pack Objects->Object Discoveries

3. Find “DHCP 2008 Server Discovery”

4. Open context menu, Overrides->Disable the Object Discovery->For all objects of another class…

5. Type “Server 2008 R2” in look for edit box

6. Select “Window Server 2008 R2 Computer”

Then already discovered objects by this discovery on Server 2008 R2 computers need to be removed. For this cmdlet “Remove-DisabledMonitoringObject” might be used from Operations Manager command shell. Please see this post for more information: http://blogs.technet.com/jonathanalmquist/archive/2008/09/14/remove-disabledmonitoringobject.aspx

In order to disable rules which generate these events do steps 1-6 but against particular rules/monitors (Microsoft.Windows.DHCPServer.Library.Collect.FreeScopeAddresses, Microsoft.Windows.DHCPServer.Library.Scope.CollectScopeAddressesInUse, etc.)
