Monitor Network Drive Mounted on Linux using SCOM 2019

Sajid Ansari 1 Reputation point


I need to monitor a network drive which is mounted on Linux servers for its availability.
Few days back we had an incident when this drive was not accessible and all our backup jobs were failing. I don't find any MP to monitor the availability of the mounted network drive.

I found this MP but it looks, it is for performance only. I need to monitor the drive and get the alert if it becomes unavailable.

    If the current MP doesn't contains a desired monitor/rule, to achieve our goal, we may considering create a Linux two-state monitor as described in below article.
    Note: the above link is not Microsoft official, just for your reference.

    Hope the above information helps.
