Answers to Event Questions – MOM

MOM 1963 (holding Kevin)“MOM!”

This is the fourth of many long-overdue, promised blog posts containing answers to questions I’ve received at our TechNet Events.

This question is about Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005


“Is there a management pack to monitor Windows Backup?  What about other backup products?”


There is a management pack available from Symantec to manage BackupExec.  Other than that, I can’t find a way to use Microsoft management packs to watch Windows Backup.

For a quick way to search for Management Packs to support both MS and non-MS products, check out the Management Pack and Utilities Catalog.


Anyone care to share how they might be monitoring Windows Backup using MOM?
