Hello,

We have SCOM alerting on our DCs and for some reason, 2008 servers report a false alert on the error "the logical drive holding the AD logfile is low on free space". Any thoughts?

Thank you!

Quick question.  Which version of Operations Manager?  2007 or 2012?  Also, which version of the Active Directory Management Pack do you have imported?

There have been some bugs in older versions of the management packs that have caused this same issues.

There is a newer AD management pack available.  6.0.8228.0 published on 10/18/2013.  I think the update in September might have a fix included that should solve your problem.

Active Directory databases larger than 4 GB reported incorrectly      This prevents incorrect logging of Event ID 333 with the following text:

AD Database and Log: Free space (KB) on drive is lower than the required reserved space for AD Log file. It should be at least 200000 KBytes.
