  1. DFS Namespaces MP 10.0.0.0 Bug

    There appears to be a bug in the "DFS Namespaces Role Service Discovery (Windows Server 2016 and 1709+)" discovery within this MP. On every server it runs on in my environment I get error 4511 from source "HealthService" in the agent log:

    "Initialization of a module of type "RegistrySyncProbe" (CLSID "{472364F2-A1F0-41C0-9A8F-E00C92C2AB31}") failed with error code The parameter is incorrect. causing the rule "Microsoft.Windows.FileServer.DFSN.10.0.RoleServiceDiscovery" running for instance "SOMESERVER.mydomain.com" with id:"{982B451D-958B-EC97-1FCE-E04CA6402B58}" in management group "MyCompany"."

    I'm not the only one seeing this, there is a thread created in January about this:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/fbc0ce74-ac57-4517-8704-ed6550e19aad/event-4511-healthservice-initialization-of-a-module-of-type-quotregistrysyncprobequot?forum=systemcenter

    I'll be disabling this discovery in my environment until this…

  2. 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.

  3. IDENTITY Arithmetic overflow in ManagedEntityTypeImageRebuild

    After running SCOM environment for a long time I got this error in Event Log:

    Exception 'SqlException': Sql execution failed. Error 8115, Level 16, State 1, Procedure ManagedEntityTypeImageRebuild, Line 56, Message: Arithmetic overflow error converting IDENTITY to data type int.

    Problem lies in the SP where a DELETE statement is executed instead of a TRUNCATE TABLE statement.

  4. Add forecasting to reports

    We are migrating our environment off prem to a hosted environment and will lose the ability to access VM data. This will make SCOM our most critical monitoring platform. I'm sure many other companies are in the same position.

    It would be great to have the option within performance reporting such as disk/memory to forecast usage as it will be our only source of data for capacity management. I can also see benefits for incident prevention as well.

  5. SQL Version Agnostic MP (7.0.15.0) PrincipalName Removed for DBEngines

    The new SQL 2017+ management pack for SCOM changes the PrincipalName for DBEngines. It now shows the NetBIOS type instance name instead of the Parent FQDN of the host. Additionally, the alerts do not have the field PrincipalName populated.

    This is a breaking change to orchestration and reporting.

    Would it be possible to return the PrincipleName and the Instance name?

  6. Groups Renaming Issue in SCOM 2019 UR1

    (Awaiting a Fix for the Group rename issue)
    Renaming a Group in SCOM 2019 UR1 will change the name in the console, but using the PowerShell still returns the old name of the group. Therefore, if we need to use or refer the group somewhere in Service Monitoring or notifications, we don't see the new name (it's still the old name)

  13. Support for SCOM Reporting feature as Highly Available / Scale out deployment

    We seem to be using a Legacy design for SCOM Reporting as SCOM reporting from 2012 - 2019 does not have the option for Scale out deployment / Highly Available setup.

    From the documents provided by Microsoft, SCOM does not support hosting Reporting SQL database on Always ON or SQL Clustered database engine instance.

    Above was from a SQL prospective, However SCOM reporting component its self is not a Highly Available setup.

    Can the product group keep this in consideration for SCOM 2016 / 2019 future updates ?

    Provide an options to view all "user-made" custom rules/monitors and the ability to export it out to CSV. That would be really helpful.

  18. Fix memory leaks in monitoringhost.exe

    Shortly after a reboot, I noticed that one of the 8 instances of monitoringhost.exe running on my SCOM server is taking up 3.8GB of RAM (and counting).

    a) That's crazy
    b) 4 more instances are using 116, 199, 321 and 482 MB respectively.
    c) See (a).

    This is a tiny lab environment monitoring 15 Windows VMs, and 26 Linux VMs (and most of the Linux ones aren't even running).

    By the time I've finished typing in the above, the process that was taking up 3.8GB is now at 4.4.

  19. Bring in Rule to Monitor/collect Top Processes in Memory/CPU utilization and make it available in Reporting

    Bring in Rule to Monitor/collect Top Processes in Memory/CPU utilization and make it available in Reporting

    Server Administrators usually request us for the Top utilizers of CPU/RAM for a Particular Time.
    This data will be useful for them to investigate the Cause of Performance issues.

    We must have a report wherein when we select the time and Server name , It should show the Top Processes using memory/cpu.
