These alerts typically signify a significant failure or potential harm to the system or individuals. Ignoring critical alerts can lead to serious consequences and further damage.

    Explanation
    The SCOM console is important to check because it can show alerts that may not be received in email notifications. Additionally, it allows access to product knowledge and company knowledge.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    There is a critical alert after hours. You have checked the company knowledge, product knowledge and history. You are still unable to resolve the issue. What should you do? 

    • A.

      Create a ticket for Tech team

    • B.

      Create a ticket for Dev team

    • C.

      Call the SME on duty

    • D.

      Send out an email notification to all users

    • E.

      Wait until normal hours

    Correct Answer
    C. Call the SME on duty
    Explanation
    If all other attempts to resolve the critical alert after hours have failed, the best course of action would be to call the Subject Matter Expert (SME) who is on duty. The SME is likely to have specialized knowledge and expertise to handle the issue effectively. Creating a ticket for the Tech or Dev team may not be timely enough, and sending out an email notification to all users may not directly address the problem. Waiting until normal hours may result in prolonged downtime and potential negative impacts on the company.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You should always copy and paste the alert details when creating a ticket for Tech.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Copying and pasting the alert details when creating a ticket for Tech is a good practice because it provides the technical support team with all the necessary information about the alert. This includes the specific error message, any error codes, timestamps, and any other relevant details. By copying and pasting the alert details, it ensures that there is no chance of miscommunication or missing out on important information, allowing the technical support team to quickly and accurately diagnose and resolve the issue.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A(n) ______ is a packet of data sent from the agent to the management server on a regular basis, by default every 60 seconds. 

    • A.

      Warning

    • B.

      Active Alert

    • C.

      Watcher Tasks

    • D.

      Heartbeat

    • E.

      Event View

    Correct Answer
    D. Heartbeat
    Explanation
    A heartbeat is a packet of data sent from the agent to the management server on a regular basis, typically every 60 seconds. This heartbeat serves as a signal to the server that the agent is still active and functioning properly. It helps to ensure that the connection between the agent and the server is maintained and allows for monitoring and troubleshooting of any potential issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    When SCOM displays an alert, how long you should wait before reporting it?

    • A.

      You should not wait. Report it immediately.

    • B.

      30 minutes

    • C.

      2 hours

    • D.

      One business day

    Correct Answer
    B. 30 minutes
    Explanation
    When SCOM displays an alert, it is important to report it immediately rather than waiting. This is because alerts in SCOM indicate potential issues or problems that require immediate attention and resolution. Waiting for a longer period of time, such as 2 hours or one business day, could result in a delay in addressing the problem, potentially leading to further complications or downtime. Therefore, reporting the alert within 30 minutes ensures prompt action and minimizes the impact of the issue.
