Updated information about Licensing for Opsgr2007 as regards to SNMP devices! April 12, 2007

Posted by Björn Axéll in SCOM.

Last week I wrote a article about the new licensing for System Center Operations Manager 2007, but after some research I found new information as regards to what kind of license you need for SNMP devices. If you read the System Center Operations Manager 2007 Licensing Brief, it has the following information:

What about network devices?

An OML is not required to manage network infrastructure devices that are only providing OSI Layer 3 or lower services (e.g. switches, hubs, routers, bridges, modems). If firewall, load balancing, or other workload services are being monitored than an OML is required just as if the device were a server.


A very big “thanks” to Stefan Stranger for notifying me that this could be the case!
