I'm planning an implementation of OpsCenter Analytics to send SNMP alerts to monitor servers with TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager) and BackupExec.
I read that in the next releases of Opscenter, those backup tools wont be supported, do you know anything about it?
Unfortunately, you cannot monitor these products with OpsCenter for Alerting Purposes... Alerting is based on NetBackup only...
OpsCenter Alert conditions OpsCenter comes with a set of predefined alert conditions. You can create alert policies based on these alert conditions to detect when something goes wrong in your NetBackup environment and troubleshoot NetBackup. The alerts help you to anticipate and handle problems before they occur. You can receive these alerts by logging on to OpsCenter, and also by email or SNMP traps. You can specify email and SNMP recipients while creating an alert policy. Alert conditions can be divided into the following categories: Event-based alert conditions For these alert conditions, OpsCenter retrieves data from NetBackup based on notifications from NBSL. Periodic alert conditions For these alert conditions, OpsCenter retrieves data from NetBackup based on a wait time (of up to 15 minutes). page 490 - OpsCenter 7.5 Admin Guide - http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5042
2) Correct B.E. and TSM will no longer be supported after 7.5, along with Ent. Vault, and EMC Legato

Please Note: Support for these Backup or Archiving Products can change if the market position or vendor support changes.
