SCOM: Alerting on Exchange 2013 Database Failover

As it turns out the Exchange 2013 MP will not be able to alert you should your Exchange 2013 databases fail over, this is by design, as Microsoft does not consider this condition to be an issue.

There is a great article by Scott at flobee.net which addresses this issue for Exchange 2010, it is quite simple to apply the same thinking for use with Exchange 2013. The event is the same, the target just needs to be Exchange 2013 server.
