Managing Windows 2008 R2 64bit workgroup server from SCOM 2007 installed on Win2K3

Hi,

We have got a SCOM 2007 server installed on a domain server (Win2k3)
We are required to manage a Win2k8 R2 64 bit server & this server is not joined to the domain.

We have created a Certificate server and imported the certificates both on the SCOM & Workgroup servers.
After that we could install the SCOM agent on the workgroup server.

Now the 2K8 server object is available in SCOM monitoring & Health Status is showing healthy, but OS Monitoring Status is showing as 'Not Monitored' (We have tried repairing, changing the Run As account but still no luck)

Appreciate your help on this.

Re-importing the management packs followed by a SCOM server reboot fixed the issue.

Yes, you are right. I followed these steps to install the certificates, after that SCOM server was able to communicate with the Workgroup server. The status of this object is also showing healthy on the SCOM server. It is just the OS monitoring status which is 'Not Monitored'.

I am not sure if I am using the correct management pack or not!!

Just as a test, I'd suggest that you disable User Account Control (UAC) on the client side, reboot, and see if it works any better.

Disabled UAC from registry, rebooted the system, restarted the Opsmgr Health service on the client. But no luck.
Tried repairing the agent from the server, still didn't work..
