If you can’t access the UNIX/Linux computers view in the Administration pane in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager, then you probably receive the following error message:
The issue occurs if the UNIX/Linux monitoring resource pool is deleted
How to solve it!
To resolve the issue, follow these steps:
- Create a resource pool for UNIX/Linux monitoring. Give the new pool a different name than the name of the deleted resource pool.
- Add the management servers that perform UNIX/Linux monitoring to the new resource pool.
- Configure the UNIX/Linux Run As accounts to be distributed by the new resource pool. To do this, follow these steps:
- In the Operations console, go to Administration > Run As Configuration > UNIX/Linux Accounts.
- For each account, follow these steps:
– Right-click the account, and then select Properties.
– On the Distribution Security page of the UNIX/Linux Run As Accounts Wizard, select More Secure.
– In Selected computers and resource pools, select Add.
– Select Search by resource pool name, and then select Search.
– Select the new resource pool that is created in step 1, select Add, and then select OK.
- Run the following PowerShell cmdlet to retrieve the managed UNIX and Linux computers:
- Verify that the agents that are associated with the deleted resource pool still exist and that the relationship remains.
- Run the following command to change the managing resource pool to the one that is created in step 1:
$SCXPool = Get-SCOMResourcePool -DisplayName "<New Resource Pool Name>"
Get-SCXAgent | Set-SCXResourcePool -ResourcePool $SCXPool
