  2. Fix the rendering on more than one screen

    On multiple screens in TP5 SCOM the buttons don't show up. Some creative Tab + Enter seems to work with the invisible buttons.

    ie
    1) Add computers/groups to OMS - no search button.
    2) Computer and device management discovery - greyed out search buttons.
    3) Computer and device management - Administrative account - missing text
    4) Repair agents - missing button.

  3. SCOM-OMS prerequisites checker tool

    Tool which can be used to do prerequisite check for connection between Agent/MS and OMS.
    Based on firewall requirements:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt484101.aspx

    including option for Proxy server and Proxy user account.
    It would be a great help for deployment and troubleshooting scenarios

  4. Fix the sort by date in the SCOM Console

    Today, the SCOM console fails to properly sort columns throughout the UI. For instance, if sorting by created date for something like Web Application Monitors, it sorts by on integer value, not based on date time.

  5. Monitor State View/Widget

    It would be great to have state views/widgets which show the state of a particular monitor instead of the health of a class.

  6. Create Configurable Discovery Groups Under Agent Managed

    I had a customer suggest that it would be nice to have groups that are configurable with Queries. The queries can target OUs, use PowerShell, target AD Queries, Use SCCM Collections, etc. The basic methods are nice but more automation around deploying agents is needed.

    For Large Management Groups it becomes difficult to sort through the huge list of servers in Agent Managed, being able to break it up would be mush easier to manage agents.

  7. visio

    Visio 2016 SCOM Addin support for creating dashboard, or integrate something like this into SCOM without needing Visio. I supported a number of customers that want this but are unaware of the feature until I present it to them as part of their requested solution.

  10. Add a "State Change" connector framework

    Just like the Alert Framework connector, it would be helpful to have a stream with state changes for external processing. Some monitors do not generate alerts but it would be helpful to get a feed of the state changes to process external responses.

  11. Alerts should contain source MP

    subj

    There are no problems with m$ mps, but sometimes it too long to find source mp in case of custom mps

    Also, in some cases we need to find source mp FAST

  12. Remove at (least the) dutch language from the console

    When editing MP's the Dutch language settings keep coming back. Please remove them from scom, I don't believe anyone in the Netherlands is using them.

  13. In the Active Alerts view I suggest having a column for the AD description

    Can we please get a column for the AD description Field in the Active Alerts view. It is ok to have it blank for alerts not created by AD Objects.

  15. Allow "create new xxx" windows to be minimised or allow access to the console behind simultaneously

    I'm frequently creating an alert and need to reference something in the background, and have to either cancel what I'm doing, or open another Operations Console.

  16. Anything thats monitored should have an alarm action out the box (even if its disabled by default)

    e.g. DFS-R backlog count. There should be an "alert when over x number of files" alert that's not enabled by default but that you can elect to use.

  17. Give the ability to right click in monitoring and "add-to-existing-dashboard"

    This would make using the built in monitoring objects on custom dashboards so much easier

  18. Reply on connect bug/feedback posts.

    I mean, having this forum is fine but what should change if even nobody replies on posts on connect?

  19. Active Alerts Screen View

    On the active alerts screen, I suggest having a column that will show whether the alert is from a rule or from a monitor. That way, when there is an outage that generates a lot of alerts, it is easier to distinguish ones you can close and ones where you need to check the health again.

  20. New SCOM SharePoint WebPart with support for Provider Hosted Model

    The SCOM SharePoint web part does not meet the criteria of the provider hosted model that was introduced in SharePoint 2013. The web part has code which is actually deployed as a solution to each SharePoint web front end in the farm. In a provider hosted app, no custom code would run on the SharePoint 2013 web front end. Many customers want to be able to display their SCOM Dashboards in SharePoint 2013, but are unable to as the current web part violates their SharePoint team's best practice approach of only supporting the Provider Hosted Model on SP2013.
