I am trying to monitor a server on the DMZ. I do not have a SCOM gateway server in place and am trying to avoid making the Root CA. This server is not in any domain and is a workgroup mode. Also it is on a different network behind a firewall. I can make whatever firewall rules are needed for connectivity.
All i need is basic SNMP monitoring for this server, agentless. Something which will simply do an ICMP ping for uptime, and monitor some basic services up or down.
Can this be done without the whole Root CA setup? In SCOM 2007 R2?
