  1. Red Hat 8 needs to be supported in SCOM 2016 ASAP!

    Red Hat 8 needs to be supported in SCOM 2016 ASAP. It is not acceptable to not provide an MP that covered RHAT 8.
    If we moved to SCOM 2019 we'd loose the ability to monitor our existing RHAT 5 and 6 servers so would be in an even worse situation that we are now with 2016.

  2. solaris

    Support for TLS 1.2 (and likely 1.3) in Solaris 10 agent. Currently this doesn't work and the agent needs a recompile to resolve the issue.

  3. Ability to turn off alerts not able to be closed in SCOM 2019

    We need to be able to disable the feature preventing alerts from being closed if the monitor is in an unhealthy state.

    As it currently stands integration with a Service desk such as Netcool is problematic as if the alert is closed in the service desk when the writeback happens to SCOM the chain breaks as the alert cannot always be closed in SCOM.

    Feature below:

    If you close an alert generated by a monitor (from the Operations Console “Active alerts” view) which is in a unhealthy state then the following message will be displayed and the alert will not…

  5. Make scheduled maintenance mode follow DST

    Scheduled maintenance modes are off by one hour every time we go to/come from Daylight Saving Time, requiring manual editing of all the schedules.
    Kevin Holman created a very useful script to workaround that issue, but it still need to be ran every time we change time.
    The scheduled maintenace mode should be able to adjust automatically to DST!

  6. A Maintenance schedules schedule created by an operator should adhere to scoping rules

    When an operator creates a maintenance schedules schedule this is only visible to that person. As a result this can also only be changed by that person.
    Only when an administrator creates a schedule this is visible to other administrators.

    It would be good that when an operator creates a schedule this is visible by members of his user role or even better it adheres the scoping structure. This would allow colleagues of the same team to modify schedules.

  9. SCOM 2019 support for 2008 R2 Clients

    We need support in SCOM 2019 for agents that are running Server 2008 R2. Almost a quarter of our servers are still 2008 R2, and this is a huge hang up for us in moving up. Since these are more legacy systems, most are also unable to be updated.

  10. SCOM Monitoring Failure with PowerBI Report Server / SSRS Updates

    Hello,

    We are using SCOM 2019 to monitor our SSRS and Power BI Report Server deployments using the SQL 2017+ Reporting Services management pack (v7.0.15.0).

    This management pack is able to successfully monitor SSRS 2017 and Power BI Report Server deployments up to May 2019, however when upgrading or deploying to Power BI Report Server September 2019, the "Report manager accessible - PBIRS" monitor in SCOM becomes critical and the following error appears in the RSPortal log file under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Report Server\PBIRS\LogFiles:

  11. Make company knowledge in SCOM editable without Office

    A small but important issue have haunted SCOM since its very beginning: You cannot edit Company knowledge without installing Office on the machine you are using to connect to the managementserver, which for larger companies most likely is a TerminalServer.

    I have used SCOM for a decade now and it puzzles me that Microsoft still does not manage to either incorporate a rich text editor or at least let us edit the textfield directly without formatting in the operations console.

    As a result, we sadly are not using this feature.

  13. Bring in Rule to Monitor/collect Top Processes in Memory/CPU utilization and make it available in Reporting

    Bring in Rule to Monitor/collect Top Processes in Memory/CPU utilization and make it available in Reporting

    Server Administrators usually request us for the Top utilizers of CPU/RAM for a Particular Time.
    This data will be useful for them to investigate the Cause of Performance issues.

    We must have a report wherein when we select the time and Server name , It should show the Top Processes using memory/cpu.

  14. Invalid ‘Data Access Service SPN Not Registered’ entries in the ‘Operations Manager’ event log

    As per Kevin Holman’s article entitled ‘OpsMgr 2012: What should the SPN’s look like?’ (i.e. https://kevinholman.com/2011/08/08/opsmgr-2012-what-should-the-spns-look-like/), please correct the following erroneous event log entries that are logged when the SDK service is restarted (and configured with an AD account):

    Event Log: Operations Manager
    Event ID: 26371
    Event Source: OpsMgr SDK Service
    Event Level: Warning
    Event Description:

                The System Center Data Access service failed to register an SPN. A domain admin needs to add MSOMSdkSvc/MS1 and MSOMSdkSvc/MS1.contoso.com to the servicePrincipalName of CN=MS1,CN=Computers,DC=contoso,DC=com
    

    The events are still being logged, even in SCOM 2019.

    Thank you,

  15. Kerberos or something else authentication for AIX scx-agents

    Kerberos authentication for Linux was a step forward. But this option is not available for AIX agents. So AIX monitoring is left with basic auth which isn't very good, to say the least.

    You need to provide some kind of modern athentication for all platforms supported.

  16. catalog

    Someone needs to properly start managing the SCOM catalog behind 'import management packs'.
    Currently it's quite a mess/chaos:
    - It contains MPs for obsolete products,
    - The descriptions of many management packs make not completely clear which MP you should actually choose, sometimes there are several versions, etc
    - Many Microsoft products are missing
    - Some management packs are available on the internet but not in via the catalog
    - There are sample entries in the catalog (in a production catalog environment?!)
    - Some server roles seem to have multiple management packs or legacy dependencies because MPs are stacked and…
