SCOM Gateway Server

I have a scenario wherein I am monitoring 70 domain controllers using SCOM 2007 R2. We have a Microsoft CA installed in our LAN and out of 70 domain controllers 65 DC's are in LAN and are getting monitored using SCOM which is implemented in LAN zone. 5 DC's are in DMZ zone and have no connection to SCOM server or CA server. But those DC's have connectivity with PDC and one more member server. I want to monitor the DMZ servers also but not able to do so.

If I go ahead and install the member server as Gateway server then I need certificate for the DMZ servers from the LAN CA server which is not conneted from DMZ servers.

Please suggest how can I implement monitoring of DMZ servers through SCOM.

Certificate authentication is only required when Kerberos will not work. From your description, it seems your DMZ SCOM gateway server will be able to use Kerberos authentication to your DMZ DCs, so you should not have to put Certificates on any of your DMZ DCs.  ( I am assuming all DCs are members of the same forest...as well as your member server in the DMZ for the Gateway)

Your firewall will probably not allow Kerberos authentication from you DMZ SCOM gateway to  SCOM management server in your LAN, so you will need a cert on your DMZ Gateway and your SCOM Management Server. You will also need TCP port 5723 open both ways from your DMZ SCOM Gateway to your SCOM Management Server.

After your certs are installed run the momcertimport utility on both your Gateway and your SCOM MS. Install the SCOM Gateway, then run the command on your SCOM RMS to approve the gateway. (GatewayApprovalTool.exe)

Manually install the SCOM agent on your DCs, use the name of the gateway server as the SCOM management server in the install wizard. Then approve the manually installed clients in SCOM under Administration | Pending Management.
