Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback.  Learn more


Do you have an idea or suggestion based on your experience with SCOM? We would love to hear it! Please take a few minutes to submit your idea in the one of the forums available on the right or vote up an idea submitted by another SCOM customer. All of the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building SCOM. We have already added some of the feedback we received through the TAP program and the recent SCOM survey.


This forum (General Feedback) is used for any broad feedback related to SCOM.

  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. Ubuntu 20 is not yet supported in SCOM 2019.

    Ubuntu 20 was first released in April 2020 but is not yet supported in SCOM 2019. The number of servers migrating to Ubuntu 20 has increased a lot in the last months and we don't have it monitored by SCOM. You should provide it urgently

  3. Change heartbeat healthy monitor on unix agents

    Situation: When the unix agent state is grey and agent is down.
    Then when you start the agent you have to wait the 2 full cycles of the heartbeat (default 2 every 630 sec) before the agent becomes healthy in scom, even when the 1st heartbeat check is succesful.

    Why wait 2 cycles for switching to the healhy state? Go to healthy after the 1st successful heartbeat check.

  4. add more filter options in the administration unix/linux agents view

    Example:
    During upgrading agents I want to be able to filter that view for all redhad 7.x agents with an old agent version

  5. The IP Address for a Linux Computer does not get updated

    After updating the IP addresses for my Linux computers, I noticed that the IP Address attribute for the computer object in SCOM did not get updated. Even after waiting many days, the address does not get updated. The only way to update the IP Address in SCOM is to remove the agent and re-install.

  6. 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.

  7. Allow special characters in Linux script outputs

    The current Linux agent parser does not allow for special characters when reading the output.

    For example, "df: ‘/tmp/tmp2’: No such file or directory" will cause the parser to crash with an "unprintable characters" error in /var/opt/microsoft/scx/log/scx.log. Note the "special" single quotes; this is what causes the error.

    Because the parser stops, the SCOM server never gets anything back from the agent. Removing the special characters resolves the issue.

  14. LVM

    There is no monitoring above the physical volume for linux. I do realize that LVM is software management above the physcial volume and is centric to Linux thus not a standard health across both OS (Linux and Windows) but this topic came up as LVM is a standard for linux that was question why SCOM doesn't have a MP for it, but other Linux Monitoring Platforms does (e.g. Zabbix)

    This will help to provide such MP in the Linux stack to show Microsoft is keeping thier promise that Microsoft loves linux.

  15. UNIX/LINUX OS Sub versions update needs to be reflected

    when ever UNIX/LINUX OS Subversions are updated, SCOM should reflect the subversion automatically on SCOM UI. for example currently we are monitoring SUSE 12.3, as part of upgrade team has upgraded to 12.4 this version never reflect on SCOM UI until we remove the server from SCOM, and re-discover.
    this needs to be fixed.

  16. 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.

  17. HP-UX Agent Support in SCOM 2019

    I was reviewing the supported UNIX/Linux OSs at the following location:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/plan-supported-crossplat-os?view=sc-om-2019 and took note that support for HP-UX has been removed. This is creating a problem for my current customer since they use HP-UX and will continue to use HP-UX. According to my customer HP-UX is still supported through 2025, so removing monitoring support in SCOM 2019 is going to be a problem. While I understand there may be workarounds for this issue, I am also concerned about maintaining the customer's environment in a supported configuration.

  18. Extend MSC Operations Manager version 2019 to support earlier versions of Linux OSes.

    Please extend MSC Operations Manager version 2019 to support Red Hat Linux to version 6.x and SUSE Enterprise Linux versions 10.x and 11.x. One issue for SUSE Linux is the supported version of OpenSSL.

  19. Add overridable perfomance collection optimization for nix management packs

    We have 1200 win agents and 250 unix agent in SCOM

    So, nix agents produces more perf data than all windows agents

    Reason: there are no optimization for performance counters at all

    Yes, you can rewrite and add module , but its almost impossible due CMDB sync in big companies

    It will be great to add overridable percentage perf. optimization

    (Same situation in sql mp, dfs mp...everywhere)

  20. Scom 2019 and SLES 11

    is there a way to install a Scom agent on Linux Sles 11?
    there is a problem with Openssl, max 0.9.8 under Sles 11 but the agent requests Openssl 1.0 minimum
    is there another compatible agent (older?)?
    thank you
