  1. selective monitor to choose management pack per server

    I would like to have an option to have a monitor nothing to monitoring what I need vs every management pack approach. For example, do my hyper-v hosts need to check for exchange monitors all the time? No so I would like to say these monitors only without doing some big to do for it.

  2. Dynamic graphing

    I think it would be cool if scom graphs could highlight point in time areas to zoom in on for more detailed graphs. Its cumbersome to change the date and time to an estimated area.

  3. Easier way to manage non trust systems.

    Make it easier to manage non-domain/other domain systems. I understand the need to encrypt communication. But id acceptable I'd like the option to allow non encrypted or bypass security certs and provide encryption. This is more small business friendly. Which I think SCOM should try and be.

  5. Make all Wizards the same

    Some wizards have a finish button, some have a close button. Why are they different? The console is soo slow, I would prefer the last button to be "Execute and Close" but it would at least be nice if they were all the same.

  6. Network Vicinity View - Include VLANs interconnecting devices in the View as an object

    Add the VLAN object in the Network Vicinity View to help understand how the servers are connected and also the networking layer 2 topology. The VLAN object is already stored in SCOM DB.

  7. License Key in SCOM setup

    There is no way to enter the license key through SCOM setup even if I had the keys with me handy. The Installer installs SCOM always as an evaluation version. I will then have to remember to enter license key through a powershell script to upgrade from an evaluation version of Operations Manager to a licensed version. This request is to add a step in the Setup wizard to accept a license key.

  8. SQL Integration MP Discovers Duplicate Integration Services

    The 2014 and 2016 SQL Integration packs have "Discover SQL Server 2014 DB Installation Source (seed)" discoveries that are targeted toward the "Windows Server" class. In environments where SSIS may be installed on SQL Clusters (and SCOM has the clustering MPs imported), this can lead to duplicate instances of the Integration services being discovered. Because clustered resource "servers" are also populated into the "Windows Server" class, they too discover SSIS instances. In one example here, one cluster that only has two base nodes had five different SSIS instances discovered, when only the base nodes should be discovered. I had to…

  9. Office 365 - Use Auto Close Monitors instead of rules for Incidents

    Currently the O365 MP all alerts are generated by a rule, and then there's another rule to close the alert (eventually, have yet to see it work). Why not use the already present (and well working) workflows from OpsManager to determine health instead and THEN generate incident alerts based on health state?. The IncidentState information is already in the Datasource's PropertyBag, why not use it in the ConditionDetectionModule to determine health.

    Also, while there is a somewhat detailed HealthModel which can and should be used as targets for the monitors above, there are no monitors attached to the classes so…

  10. trust

    Multiple DCs in a forest have a trust with another forest. Due to IPv4 overlap, only certain DCS will be allowed through the firewall to the other forest.
    Overrides to NOT alert on trust errors. The override can target a group or device. The override has trusts to ignore.

  11. Compare (all or part of) an Windows event description text of multiple events

    Compare the event description text of multiple eventlog entries, within a certain period of time, in a bad-good scenario. Preferably with the use of wildcards, so that it is possible to compare parts of the event description text which is unknown in advance.
