If you use Systems Center Operations Manager and the Office Communications Server Management Pack, you can configure Monitoring Server to trigger Operations Manager alerts, based on the performance of network endpoints. To specify which servers will trigger these alerts, use this procedure.

If you are not using the Office Communications Server Management Pack, these settings will have no effect and you do not need to configure them.

To specify the locations that will trigger alerts

  1. Using an account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdminsgroup, open the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 snap-in: Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Office Communications Server 2007 R2.

  2. In the console tree, expand the Forestnode, and then expand Monitoring Servers.

  3. Right-click the monitoring server you want to configure, and then click Properties.

  4. In the Propertiesdialog box, click the Locationstab.

  5. Under QoE Location Settings, click Locations.

  6. In the Locationslist, select the check box for each location that you want to trigger alerts, and then click OK.

    If this list is empty, this Monitoring Server may not have received quality reports from any endpoints yet, or you may need to change which endpoints are providing reports. For details, see Configuring Network Locations to Monitor.
