Disabling event data collection

Events written to the event log by the ESI Exchange High Availability Extension are saved in the SCOM Operational Database and Data Warehouse.

Note: When you disable the rules that collect event data, the views and reports that rely on this data do not work. Enable them again before you use the views or run any performance data reports.

To disable the rules that collect event data for the ESI Exchange HA Extension:

  1. Open the SCOM Operations Console and connect to the SCOM Management Group.

  2. Select the Go > Authoring menus.

  3. In the left pane, select Rules.

  4. Change the scope to EMC SI Exchange High Availability Extension Service.

  5. Select and double-click the rule that you want to disable.

Note: The collection rules for the operational database include (DB) in the name and collection rules for the data warehouse include (DW) in the name.

  1. Open the Override properties and edit the overrides for all objects of class.

  2. Select the EMC Storage Integrator Exchange High Availability Extension Monitoring Customization management pack.

  3. Change the Enabled property to False.

  4. Click Apply and verify the changed values.

  5. Click OK, and then click Close.

  6. Repeat this procedure for each rule that you want to disable.
