REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 8, 2001 — IT professionals now have a new scalable, enterprise-ready tool to monitor the health of their Exchange Server infrastructure. The Exchange Application Management Pack for Microsoft® Operations Manager (MOM) 2000 manages the performance of Windows® 2000 Server’s Active Directory™
service, Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2000, as well as other Microsoft mission-critical business applications, helping Exchange administrators identify and resolve issues before end users ever notice a disruption in service.
In any given day, an Exchange server can generate thousands of events. The Exchange Management Pack analyzes the barrage of events and prioritizes the alerts that require attention. This enables IT staff to address the most serious problems first, fix them faster and keep resources allocated to high-priority projects. In turn, a business can realize a more reliable messaging and collaboration environment, reduce IT costs, and increase customer satisfaction. The Exchange Management Pack verifies mail flow; checks mail queues; and monitors end-user mail accessibility, free space on disk drives, directory availability and other critical services. The Management Pack provides automated remedies, but for more extensive help-desk functionality, administrators can connect to the Microsoft Knowledge Base and receive the most relevant information to alleviate their problem.
The Application Management Pack expands MOM’s comprehensive Windows operating system-based event and performance intelligence to manage Microsoft .NET Enterprise Servers, including Exchange 2000 Server, Exchange 5.5 Server, SQL Server™
2000, SQL Server 7.0, Internet Security and Accelerator Server 2000, Commerce Server 2000, and Host Integration Server 2000. More information on the Exchange Application Management Pack can be found online at http://www.microsoft.com/exchange/techinfo/administration/2000/e2kwmom.asp .
