I want to monitor some windows services using SCOM 2007 R2. The servers which needs to be monitored are in a seperate forest and have no trust relationship with the forest in which SCOM is installed.
Is it possible to monitor some window services, there services are not windows OWN services but installed by some other software. Default windows services like IIS and Domain controller services are already being monitored of there untrust forest machines. But i need to monitor some other window services which do not have any management pack.

It's not a complex task, just follow the article and you will be fine.
In the article you can browse to the machine and look for the service but you can't for the untrusted domain computers.
You have to manually put in the service name in step 6 to make it work en it will discover automatically after you finish the guide.

Walter
