  1. Fix SSRS 2017 Integration

    When rolling out SSRS 2017, once you add the SCOM Report Server role to it, the Reports page only gives a 500 error. Reports work in the console, but can no longer get to the web interface.

  2. 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…

  3. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 support (RHEL 8)

    Any idea when is RHEL 8 going to be supported? My customers are already deploying servers in RHEL8 and we cannot provide monitoring for them.

  5. 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.

  6. Node properties should reflect currently effective data

    Current design for node location property is to show the last known value. For example a device is added and has a location this location is shown. If the location field is made empty the property in SCOM is not updated. This behavior is a deviation from the normal behavior for object properties as they do reflect the current effecitve data. Please remove this deviation and always show the current effective value, if we want to know a historical value we do have a data warehouse and reporting capabilities.

  7. Provide examples (sample code) for SCOM 1801+ REST API

    Hi,

    since 1801 SCOM offers a REST API. That is great and I'd like to leverage it for some cross platform scenarios.

    Unfortunately the examples (currently just JavaScript and related to alerts) don't help me.

    Please add examples (sample code) in PowerShell , C# or provide Swagger compatibility.

    Many thanks

    Ruben

  8. 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,

  9. implement ssh server on scom and support python scripts

    Due to the need for hybrid environments with opensource systems and the scom's apliances to stay competitive with, market chains should enable native support for secure ssh communication but without fully depending on the requested agent, thereby opening up numerous possibilities for direct execution of Hi, I have a ssh command. I have a ssh command. I have a ssh command that interprets bash commands via ssh but it does not have native support. It is mandatory to install an ssh service on the windows server, there is also a need to run python scripts, such as zabbix and splunk…

  10. Design Scom to support Kusto language instead of SQL Query

    Currently we are able to collect monitoring data, Audit through ACS or dashboard deployment, either by Scom Console or VSAE or other partner tools. Depending on the dashboard and customer skill, it's a struggle to create these tasks and many give up and move for a easier competitor monitoring tool.
    With Kusto Language used by Azure Monitor, many customers had a good feedback because it's easier to create dasboards and query data. However some ones are restrict to use Cloud Solution due to company policy and prefer using on-premises solutions.
    Another barrier for using SQL query is a dependence from…

    - Groups: Add column for MP (where group is defined/stored)
    - Groups: add column to view "total members"
    - Group Explicit Members: Only the DisplayName of classes appear. There are many, many duplicate class names and it's nearly impossible to select the correct one. Add columns for MP and class Name.
    - Subscriptions: add column to view "subscription giud"
    - Performance View: when adding specific rules to a perf view only the DisplayName of the rules appear. Add columns for Name and MP.
    - Management Pack/Alert Tuning: Add path information
    - State Views: Add column for class Name and Monitoring…

  15. SCOM Installer Failure with RC4 Protocol Disabled

    SCOM 1801/1807 installer and discovery wizard fails to work until I had to enable RC4 on the DC, SCOM management server, and the SCOM database server. Please remove the RC4 dependency. I had to find this article to figure out that RC4 was my issue. https://nathangau.wordpress.com/2018/06/22/scom-installer-failure-with-rc4-protocol-disabled/

  17. Monitor named "Performance Data collection health" needs to be fine tuned in a way that it does not overload the SQL Server when enabled.

    The default SCOM monitor named "Performance Data collection health" which is disabled by default, needs to be fine tuned in a way that it does not overload the SQL Server when enabled for 1000 + Agents. The way the SQL query is built it looks like running it against 1000+ Agents will cause performance issues on the SQL server.

    The purpose to enable this monitor is to identify if Performance data is stopped collected / missing for specific Agents in last few hours.

    Request the product group to review the request to see we can ship this by default enabled…

  18. Provide option for alternative installation directories on Operations Console for agent installation on unix/linux servers other than /tmp/

    Currently default directory for agent installation on Unix/Linux servers using Operations Console is /tmp/scx-username. However, if /tmp directory is hardened due to security reasons for unix/linux servers on customer environment, they will have to manually install scom agent on unix/linux servers and does not have an alternative to install the agent from Operations console on other directory.

  19. Fix the script used to monitor the cluster disks

    When monitoring the Windows 2016 Failover Cluster disks, the script (Microsoft.Windows.Server.MonitorClusterDisks.vbs) times out and also causes the clussvc.exe to use excessive amount of CPU usage (on average 25% with peaks to 100%) if the cluster has a higher amount of physical disks (100). The systems are physical servers, with Xeon CPUs (8 physical cores + HT). The script does eventually finish if ran manually, but it needs 25 minutes...

  20. mount point

    The Windows Server OS MP v6.0.7323.0 is discovering the System Reserved \\?\Volume as a mounted disk when you create an override to enable the Mount Point Discovery Rule. This appears to be the case only for Server 2008 and 2012 but not for Server 2016. This behavior was addressed in an older version of the OS MP v6.0.7297.0. Did Microsoft forgot to include the fix in the current version? We need to monitor the mount points on our servers but there isn't a way to exclude just the \\?\Volume from the mount point discovery. Please advise on a fix. Thanks!
