SCOM not able to discovery and monitoring of SQL Server roles such as DB Engine and Reporting Services, except Analysis Services and Integrations Services. to monitor other server non-clustered sql databases no issue. any idea?

Integration services isn't a clustered service - it's installed on each node and isn't associated with any of the sql instances.

The SQL Engine and Analysis Service, though, are associated with particular clustered instances. When you're trying to monitor it via SCOM, what information are you giving the SCOM server when you set it up? Each clustered SQL instance should be addressed as "CLUSTERNETWORKNAME\INSTANCENAME", where the first is the network name belonging to that instance application group and the instance name is the instance of sql server. Connecting just to the network name or the name of any of the nodes won't work properly.

our SCOM version is SP1.
current situation is right now i m able to see the cluster and 2 nodes are in monitoring mode, but the sql cluster not able to detect resources (e.g. databases).

I believe there is a fix for clustered sql discovery issue so that I download and update sql management pack.

and then i have also done enabling agent proxy on both cluster nodes.
action account i leave it as default (local system)
same result after i have done above mentioned steps.
