How do I correctly configure Low Disk Space alerts for Windows Server 2003 systems with SCOM 2007

I am trying to configure SCOM 2007 to send and alert when a Disk drops below 1.5GB on either drive. I already have the Windows Server 2003 Management Pack imported.

I do already have annoying alerts coming in on Low Disk space for Exchnage 2007 systems, but those only. And they are coming in by default configuration.


Thanks,

`John

Disk space will generate alerts by default using the windows OS management pack.
The alerts are based on dual thresholds.  What this means is a disk has to drop below 2 thresholds before it's considered in a warning or error state where it needs to generate an alert. An example of this is a setup that says my error % threshold is 99 and my error MB threshold is 1GB.  To go into an error state, the disk would need to match the condition detailed by *both* of these thresholds.  One alone will not put it into an alert state.
There are 4 thresholds set for the disk space alerts.
2 for system drives in the form of a percentage and a MB limit.
2 for non-system drives in the form of a percentage and a MB limit.
You will need to tweak *both* thresholds in each instance by setting overrides to get your systems to alert in the way you wish.
The Exchange Disk Space monitors are part of the Exchange management pack and are part of a different set of monitors/rules and alerts.  Your Management Group wide thresholds should be changed on the ones in the Windows OS Management Packs, not the Exchange ones that are currently generating your alerts.
