Hello,

   I was curious as to how I could set up SCOM 2007 to monitor logical disk space for specific servers on our LAN. Any suggestions, advise would be much appreciated since I don't know this product very well at all.

Thank you in advance!

If you load the Windows Management packs, it should monitor the logical disk space for all the servers.  Do you want to stop monitoring all the servers except the one, or do you want to create an alert to email you (or take some other action) when the logical disk trips some limit?

I don't want it to monitor all the servers. I have a monitor already doing that. I need to setup an individual monitor that will monitor only our SQL server's logical drive space. I need to do this in order for our dba's to receive SCOM alerts from only the SQL servers and not the other 500 servers.

If you have a monitor already for what you want to see... but just want the alert for a single SQL server, please try this:
In the Administration area, under Notifications, create a new subscription.
  Under criteria, select "created by specific rules or monitors", and as an example, in the Windows Server 2003 Operating System, I'd select "% Logical Disk Space 2003"
    Then also select "raised by an instance with a specific name", and look for "Windows Server 2003 Computer"... and select your database server.  (Selecting a specific instance of a logical drive looks to be problematic... because, in my instance for example, I just get a tremendous number of C: and D: drives without being able to differentiate.)
   Looking at the "Logical Disk Free Space" monitor properties for Windows 2003, it would appear the defaults are 100 MB or 5% for a system drive error, 200 MB or 10% for system drive warning, 1000 MB or 5% for a non-system drive error, and 2000 MB or 10% for a non-system drive warning.  You can override those values for your specific database server.
