    • Keep NOAPM=1 as default setting for all MMA versions

      The APM component (regardless of APM being enabled) frequently breaks .NET applications. Re-installing agent with NOAPM=1 means we cannot leverage the SCOM console to deploy agents. Request

      • Export-SCOMEffectiveMonitoringConfiguration cmdlet should ignore commas in description

        The PowerShell cmdlet Export-ScomEffectiveMonitoringConfiguration will output a mis-configured CSV file and of the fields in the monitor contain a comma - such as Description (the most likely one). The cmdlet should ignore commas if finds in any fields, so the exported CSV is properly formatted.

          • Develop Office 365 Synthetic Transaction Management Pack

            The official Office 365 Management Pack is only covering the (Microsoft)Data Center view of the availability of Office 365 services. It provides no information on an end user's perception of the availability of the services.
            In order to do this, I have created a custom management pack that provides a framework for synthetic transactions that can be run from SCOM Agent computers against Exchange and SharePoint Online. I also have created some synthetic transactions as an example on how to get these up and running: External MailFlow (ExO), Calendar Access (ExO), Up-and Download Files to SPO.

            • SCOM 2016 support SQL Server 2016SP1

              Currently SCOM 2016 does NOT support SP1. SP1 touts consistent programmability across SQL Server editions. This should also benefit the development team to streamline customizations.

                  • Allow update of MP version in VSAE when using Auto-increment version

                    If you open a VSAE project on a new machine, the version number for the MP (if using Auto-increment) will reset to the default 1.0.0.1. However this Mp could be on version 1.0.41 and won't install unless you rebuild the soltion 40+ times or turn off Auto-Increment.

                    It would be nice if we could set the value in the deployment tab of the MP properties and VSAE increment from that number on the next build

                      • Audit SCOM User Role Actions

                        There should be an option to turn on/off auditing on each of the user role types. We have a need to delegate override privileges to our users and would like to have some insight as to what they are changing and ensure the correct management packs are used for the storage of the overrides.

                                  • Offer Baselining Monitors For Non-Windows Devices

                                    It would be nice if we could create baselining monitors on any rule that's generating performance data in Operations Manager. Currently, you can only create baselining monitors for Windows Performance Counters.

                                    • Add powershell command for adding SNMP devices

                                      After discovering SNMP devices by PS Script it would be nice to add them to SCOM also by script. Within OM2007 it was possible ...

                                        • Allow Powershell script in Agent task

                                          Currently only vbs is supported, when creating Agent based task. For now, PS is mostly installed on all recent OS please implement support for adding Powershell scripts here.
                                          You can mark it somehow- to distinguish VBS/PS based tasks, so users are not running ( or know and accepts) it on systems which do not support PS.
