I would like to monitor the Exchange environment which contains roles CAS (CAS Array with WNLB), Mailbox ( 2 DAG members), Hub Transport and ForeFront UAG servers. Currently we've a tool from HP to monitor hardware only.

After digging, I come to know that there is a management pack exist for Exchange 2010 to monitor directly from SCOM (System Center Operations Manager.)

Q 1 [250p]: What type of monitoring tool can I use to monitor ONLY Exchange Server (like to hear any 3rd party paid programs)

Q 2 [250p]: What type of monitoring tool can I use to monitor both H/W and S/W (like HP, Dell Servers, Exchange, Citrix etc.)

any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Do you aware of any "simple" tool to monitor Exchange environment only? I went through Nagios's website, but I didn't find anything related to Exchange monitoring!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I didn't use "any tool" at. I manually excute scripts to get performance information like Database Health Status, Up time, size etc. from Exchange 2010.

Instead, I would like performance report from Exchange 2010 servers. I've SCOM in my mind, but before suggesting it to my management, I would like to see for alternatives.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM) is an excellent choice for me at this time. However I'm also looking into new SCOM 2012.
