    If you have an idea or suggestion about this management pack, the Operations Manager team encourages you to share it at the SCOM Feedback site.

     

    Changes in Version 10.0.8.0

    · Fixed issue: “DHCP Server 2016 IPV4 Individual Scope Addresses Available Percentage Monitor” was not generating the corresponding alerts in case of 0% percentage available.

    · Fixed issue: “DHCP Server 2016 IPV4 Individual Scope Addresses Available Percentage Monitor” was failing if multiple scopes had the same name.

    · Fixed issue: “DHCP Server 2016 IPV6 Individual Scope Addresses Available Percentage Monitor” was not generating the corresponding alerts in case of 0% percentage available.

    · Fixed issue: “DHCP Server 2016 IPV6 Individual Scope Addresses Available Percentage Monitor” was failing if multiple scopes had the same name.

    · Fixed issue: If the property scope id length of the failover server watcher class exceeded the max length, then Failover Server Watcher was not being discovered and hence could not monitor DHCP failover servers. The fix ensures that discovery is successful.

    Fixed issue: In a DHCP server with multiple scopes, if two or more scopes have same name when the alert raise for one scope it automatically raises the alert for another same scope name. The fix ensures that alerts are sent only for generated

     

    Supported Configurations

    The Management Pack for System Center supports primarily the DHCP server role of Microsoft Windows 2016, the DHCP clustered installation and the failover relationship feature. Windows PowerShell feature should be enabled.

    All SCOM management servers should have remote access to the event log of the servers participated in DHCP failover relationship. For details, see “Event log” section of the following article.

    Operating system Standalone DHCP Clustered DHCP
    (x64) (x86) (x64) (x86)
    Microsoft Windows Server 2016 X NA X NA

    This management pack is supported to run in System Center 2012 Operations Manager or later.

     

    Recommended Additional Management Packs

    If you have a clustered DHCP deployment, you will need to download the Cluster Management Pack along with the DHCP Management Pack. The Cluster Management Pack provides both proactive and reactive monitoring of your Windows Server 2016 cluster deployments. It monitors cluster services components such as nodes, networks, resources, and resource groups, and reports problems that can cause downtime or poor performance.

    Security Considerations

    You may need to customize your management pack. Certain accounts cannot be run in a low-privilege environment or must have minimum permissions.

    Low-Privilege Environments

    The Windows Server DHCP Management Pack includes a Run As profile called DHCP Action Account. This profile can be assigned to a user-defined action account to support running in low-privileged environments.

    The action account must have the following permissions:

    · Registry Read permission

    · Full access to HKLM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DHCPServer\Performance key and all subkeys

    · Event log Read permission

    · Member of the DHCP Users or DHCP Administrators group (located in local Security Accounts Manager (SAM) or Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) depending on whether the managed node is domain joined or not)

    · Server Operator (if you want to be able to start / stop DHCP service)

    · Able to create temporary files in the service account temp directory

     

    Known Issues and Troubleshooting

    Known Issue: Discoveries fail on agents without PowerShell

    Issue: Discoveries will fail on the agents without PowerShell installed on the server.

    Workaround: Install PowerShell, or disable “DHCP Cluster 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” and “DHCP 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” discoveries on these agents. Then, run the following command in the “Operations Manager Shell”: Remove-SCOMDisabledClassInstance.

    Known Issue: “DHCP IPV4 scope” is deprecated; several rules and monitors are deprecated

    Issue: As long as “DHCP IPV4 scope” is deprecated, the following rules and monitors are deprecated:

    · Collect IPv4 DHCP Client Declines Events

    · Collect IPv4 NACK Issued Events

    · Collect IPv4 Scope Full Events

    · Collect Unknown IPv4 Option Events

    · Collect IPv4 Boot Full Events

    · Collect IPv4 Released Leases

    · Collect Orphaned Entries Deleted Events

    · Collect IPv4 Low Address Warning Events

    · DHCP IPv4 Scope BOOTP Full Monitor

    · DHCP IPv4 Scope NACKs Occurring Monitor

    · DHCP IPv4 Scope Reconcile Required Monitor

    · DHCP IPv4 Scope Unknown Option Monitor

    Workaround: No workaround available.

     

    Known Issue: “IPv6 Binding Is Enabled” and “IPv6 Preferred Lifetime” properties are not populated

    Issue: “IPv6 Binding Is Enabled” and “IPv6 Preferred Lifetime” properties are not filled with the corresponding values.

    Workaround: No workaround available.

     

    Known Issue: DHCP server role is discovered on all cluster virtual servers

    Issue: DHCP server role is discovered on all cluster virtual servers. Therefore, all cluster groups are found as DHCP servers.

    Workaround: Disable “DHCP Cluster 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” discovery for all agentless cluster computers except for cluster virtual servers, which represent clustered DHCP role. Then, run the following command in the “Operations Manager Shell”: Remove-SCOMDisabledClassInstance.

     

    Known Issue: Non-clustered DHCP server roles are discovered on active clustered node

    Issue: Discovery finds non-clustered DHCP roles on clustered node, which owns DHCP role.

    Workaround: Disable “DHCP 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” discovery for all agentless computers, which are located on a cluster having clustered DHCP role. Then, run the following command in the “Operations Manager Shell”: Remove-SCOMDisabledClassInstance.

     

    Known Issue: Discoveries fail on Nano server 2016

    Issue: “DHCP Cluster 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” and “DHCP 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” discoveries fail on Nano servers 2016.

    Workaround: Disable “DHCP 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” discovery for “Windows Server 2016 Computer (Nano)” class. Disable “DHCP Cluster 2016 Server Discovery Data Source” discovery for clustered nodes on Nano server 2016. Then, run the following command in the “Operations Manager Shell”: Remove-SCOMDisabledClassInstance.

    Known Issue: “DHCP server 2016 discovery data source” fails if DHCP server is not running

    Issue: “DHCP server 2016 discovery data source” fails if DHCP server is not running.

    Workaround: No workaround available.

     

    Known Issue: “Discovery DHCP 2016 Failover Server Relationships Data Source” does not work

    Issue: “Discovery DHCP 2016 Failover Server Relationships Data Source” does not work if partner server name is set as IP address.

    Workaround: Check that agent is installed on all DHCP servers in Failover Relationship. And then setup DHCP Failover partner(s) with FQDN instead of IP address.
    Another option: during creation of failover relationship via “DHCP Manager” console, use DNS name of servers. For remote servers, use “Add-DhcpServerv4Failover” PowerShell cmdlet instead of remote connection via “DHCP Manager” console.

    For example:

    “Add-DhcpServerv4Failover -ComputerName base1-core-01.baseos1.local -Name CORE01toCORE02 -PartnerServer base1-core-02.baseos1.local -ScopeId 192.168.241.0”

     

    Known Issue: “Discovery DHCP 2016 Failover Server Relationships Data Source” fails if DHCP failover returns empty data for some properties

    Issue: Discovery may fail if DHCP failover returns empty data for some properties.

    Workaround: No workaround available.

    Display Strings Known Issue: “Ping IPV4 Scope” and ” Ping IPV6 Scope” tasks have incorrect output

    Issue: The tasks output displays grammatically incorrect text (“is a invalid ip”) and does not display the required data.
