  1. 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

  2. Use the Perl RegEx engine everywhere in SCOM

    Modify the RegEx engine leveraged by the expression filters (& possibly elsewhere in SCOM) from the .NET Framework RegEx engine, to the Perl engine that is leveraged by the group calculator module. Doing so would bring the following benefits:

    1 - Consistency in the interpretation of regular expressions throughout SCOM;
    2 - A more flexible experience using regular expressions in the context of expression filters, as the Perl engine offers support for RegEx functionality that is not available with the .NET Framework engine, such as the support for certain "Character Classes" (ex.: \d for digit) & "Assertions" (i.e. [Negative] Look(ahead|behind)).

  3. Stop dictating how customers use your product

    Scom was terrible anyways, now you dictate what alerts we cannot close. This removes the ability for us to move forward with our upgrade. Why you made a change for one person that effects thousands of others shows your intelligence. The feature needs to be disabled. Whoever decided this was a good idea needs to be fired immediatley

  4. SCOM support for LDAPs (Port 636)

    As per Microsoft official documentation. "Configuring a Firewall for Operations Manager" at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/plan-security-config-firewall?view=sc-om-2019 it is clearly called out that SCOM doesnt support LDAPs.

    "Operations Manager uses port 389 for LDAP queries for multiple actions such as agent discovery, active directory integration, etc. Operations Manager does not support LDAPs."

    Certain client (Banking and Financial Services to be in particular) aren't ready to allow any insecure connection including LDAP (Port 389).

  5. Multi Subnet Failover availability for SCOM 2019

    SCOM 2019 with OpsDB on AllwaysOn SQL Server is not Multi Subnet capable. Both nodes of the AllwaysOn server are located in different data centers. If the AllwaysOn failover to the passive node for whatever reason, SCOM loses the connection. He must ask the DNS server until it returns the active node behind the listener name. Unfortunately, this can take longer and the SCOM console does not work during this time. Very ugly! We are in the process of setting up a load balancer from F5 so that the SCOM server receives the response which is the active node behind…

  6. Option to allow SCOM Admins to grant Advance Operators the ability to view other AO's Maintenance Schedules

    Provide the option for SCOM Administrators to allow roles such as Advanced Operators to view but not edit existing maintenance schedules. This functionality would be beneficial to some customers as it would allow users to prevent creating duplicate schedules or to verify the existence of an expected schedule before beginning work.

  10. Implement a way for immediate SCOM agent data purge

    The current way for immediate agent removal is not supported via SCOM SDK, but involves some SQL tweaking, in order to cleanup the database in advance from remnants of the object. The reason is that all discovery workflows should pass (on their respective schedule) before all references to the objects are removed. More details here: https://kevinholman.com/2018/05/03/deleting-and-purging-data-from-the-scom-database/

  11. SCCM MP Client Discovery Hangs

    In the latest version of the SCCM Management pack (5.0.8239.1010), the client discovery (Microsoft.SystemCenter2012.ConfigurationManager.ClientDiscovery) hangs on machines that don't have the expected registry keys, it appears. It just runs forever until a 10,000 event is logged, then it starts again.

    I found other users reporting this here:

  12. Enable Edge for Web Availability and Transaction tests monitor

    Many new web sites now are blocking IE to accept only Edge. So Web transaction recorder is not working. Even a simple GET test is not working. Is there plan to enable Edge as a working browser for SCOM 2019 Web Application Monitoring templates ?

  13. Integration with Meraki Network Devices

    Currently, only devices supporting all of the properties in the system MIB-II are able to be discovered in SCOM using SNMP (as far as I understand).

    Cisco/Meraki do not support some of these properties which results in a failure to discover the device with SNMP.

    Whilst this is a lack of support from Meraki, I assume to persuade customers to use their Meraki dashboard, this IS possible to add such devices in SolarWinds, even though information is restricted. It still allows the device to be discovered.

    Meraki devices can be managed and monitored via API, therefore SCOM needs to be…

  16. Need a method for perpetual maintenance mode in SCOM 2016

    I want to apply a maintenance mode schedule that will keep a group of servers in mmode 'permanently'. I've tried this with a daily schedule for a duration of 1445 minutes so there's over lap when the next run happens, but it will stop running after a couple days.

  18. SCOM 2019 Web console: Maintenance Schedule/User Roles enables Active Alerts dasboards

    My need is enable only Maintenance Schedules view for users/groups and use self made Alert views in Web Console, but every time enabling Maintenance Schedule @ User Role Properties in Dashboard and Views enables Active Alerts Dashboard and Alert Closure Failure views. Could this be fixed so that only Maintenance Schedule view is possible?

    I would like also that at in Maintenance Schedule / Create I could disable Available Objects viewing automatically available servers/objects (meaning that user must know object / server name and type it to available objects field to get it for view)

  20. Microsoft Learn - Learning Paths / Modules for SCOM

    SCOM as a product can be somewhat difficult to learn, mostly because of insufficient learning material or courses for existing/new users/customers. I have personally received many comments and questions about SCOM being a difficult and complex product.

    Although there are a lot of great community blogs and materials out there, it may still be spread out abit everywhere and difficult to come by.
    So I thought of a Microsoft Learn, which is a free, interactive, hands-on training platform that helps people develop in-demand technical skills related to widely used Microsoft products.

    I think Microsoft Learn modules for SCOM could be…
