INTRODUCTION

Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Connectors update is now available. This update fixes the following issues in System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Connectors.

Issue 1: Potential high CPU usage of HP OVO Event Consumer for Windows (scinteropd.exe)

The Scinteropd.exe process of HP OVO Event Consumer for Windows sometimes increases CPU usage to a very high level. This problem occurs only in System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Connectors for HP Operations Manager on Windows. It occurs in all language versions of the connectors.

Cause of issue 1

The Scinteropd.exe process enters a loop when multiple transactions occur at the same time.

Note For example, multiple transactions occur when the Scinteropd.exe process is acknowledging messages from the OVO side.

Issue 2: Synchronization issue in HP OVO Connector

HP Operations Manager and System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 may be in an asynchronous state when alerts are forwarded that have already been resolved. Open events are still present in HP Operations Manager even though the corresponding alerts in System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 are already resolved.

Cause of issue 2

A delay occurs when an alert is marked "to be forwarded" and is actually handled by the connector service. If the forwarded alert is resolved before the connector service handles the alert, the release version of the OVO connector service forwards the resolved alert to HP OVO. Then, an active message is created in HP OVO that corresponds to the resolved alert in System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2.

Issue 3: Remedy connectors do not populate the Computer Name and Domain fields

When an alert is forwarded from System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 to Remedy, the Computer Name field and the Domain field are left blank in the Remedy notes field. This issue occurs in the release version of System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Connector for Remedy 6.3 and Remedy 7.1.

Cause of issue 3

The Computer Name field and the Domain field are populated incorrectly.

Issue 4: Unresponsiveness of the Interop provider when an Enterprise Management Service (EMS) API call returns an error

The Interop provider may stop responding and not recover when an API calls to the EMS and returns an error.

Note Usually, the API calls to Remedy.

This issue typically occurs when large localized text strings in the Custom Field Alert properties are forwarded to Remedy. However, it can also occur with other properties.

Note This issue is associated with the Remedy connector. However, it might also occur with other connectors. Therefore, the update provided in this article includes the updated Unix Interop providers. However, do not apply the updated Unix Interop providers unless you are instructed to do this by a support professional. To apply the updated Unix Interop providers, you can uninstall the Interop provider and reinstall the new Unix Interop provider packages that are included in this update package.

Cause of issue 4

The Interop providers do not handle errors returned from the API calls correctly. After you apply this update, the Interop providers are updated to correctly handle errors returned from the API calls. If the forwarded alert cannot be inserted into the remote system according to the rules that apply to the remote system, the failure is logged and the provider continues to process additional forwarded alerts. This applies to all the System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Connectors.
