  1. SCOM Monitoring Failure with PowerBI Report Server / SSRS Updates

    Hello,

    We are using SCOM 2019 to monitor our SSRS and Power BI Report Server deployments using the SQL 2017+ Reporting Services management pack (v7.0.15.0).

    This management pack is able to successfully monitor SSRS 2017 and Power BI Report Server deployments up to May 2019, however when upgrading or deploying to Power BI Report Server September 2019, the "Report manager accessible - PBIRS" monitor in SCOM becomes critical and the following error appears in the RSPortal log file under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Report Server\PBIRS\LogFiles:

    2019-12-05 10:41:19.4770|ERROR|37|DOMAIN\SCOMRunAsAccount ::1: HEAD - 0:00:00.0004824
    Exception: System.Net.ProtocolViolationException: Bytes to be written to the stream…

  2. Web console customization

    It would be great to customize the console like "personalize view" in the "fat" client.
    And it would be good if columns would not auto-size - or at least just optional.

    Thank you,
    Patrick

  3. Allow SCOM to support Log Analytic agent deployments

    The SCOM agent version deployed by SCOM is defined by the UR level. With Log Analytics agents, version control is becoming an issue. I propose some mechanism to allow SCOM to deploy the latest Log Analytics agent. Either as a patch or an alternate agent update version.

  4. Make company knowledge in SCOM editable without Office

    A small but important issue have haunted SCOM since its very beginning: You cannot edit Company knowledge without installing Office on the machine you are using to connect to the managementserver, which for larger companies most likely is a TerminalServer.

    I have used SCOM for a decade now and it puzzles me that Microsoft still does not manage to either incorporate a rich text editor or at least let us edit the textfield directly without formatting in the operations console.

    As a result, we sadly are not using this feature.

  5. Description Bug: MSSQL on Windows: Some securables are inaccessible

    In the MSSQL on Windows: Some securables are inaccessible alert the Alert description states that the following objects are views;
    - msdb.dbo.sysjobschedules
    - msdb.dbo.log_shipping_primary_databases
    - msdb.dbo.log_shipping_secondary_databases

    These are actually Tables in MSDB. This can be confusing for non-SQL SCOM admins when trying to troubleshoot and resolve issues

    This should be updated to reflect that they are tables not views.

  6. need diagnostic and recovery tasks for log monitoring

    seems that when i setup a log monitor there is not an diagnostic and recovery tab. so i am unable to add any of these tasks with a log monitor. other monitors have a diagnostic and recovery tab so automation is able to be added with those monitors. however for log monitoring, we have to take manual reaction to these alerts since the diagnostic and recovery tab does not exist. we need to have that option for log monitors.

  7. allow heartbeat monitor's heartbeat intervals and # of missed heartbeat to be overrideable parameters on the monitor.

    Heartbeat frequency and number of allowed missed heartbeats should be overridable parameters on the monitor so they can be managed using the override screen as well. This adds the benefit of knowing when they have been changed. Currently only the frequency can be changed, and that is per agent or by bulk via powershell and even that is not done through a normal override as other SCOM monitors. Number of allowed missed heartbeats is only a global change at the moment so you cannot change it at all. I would like the ability to do both.

  8. Fix Issue with Rollup for Exchange Health Set MailboxSpace

    With multiple disks on an Exchange server for DAG all the database health for low log space all rollup to the server. So if a another disks breaches the threshold an alert is not sent as the existing one is still there and has already sent an alert.

  9. SQL Server British English RunAs (login) accounts don't work properly

    I have reported a problem to MS support that they have been able to successfully repro but it has been suggested that I post it on here as well.
    On SCOM 2012R2 and SQL2017, if the RunAs account is British English then failing database backups don't report. If you change it to English and restart the SQL Server it all works. If you change it back and restart it doesn't.

  10. I would love the ability to monitor Log analytics entries with Scom... just like windows event logs is done today..

    Today this can be done with a powershell script or creating a rule with azure monitor (the later sucks as no data from the actual row can be passed on).
    A simple wizard would be great... just as the windows event log monitors/rules

  11. Azure HDI Cluster monitoring

    Hi Team,

    We have been asked to enable monitoring for HDI Cluster through SCOM and when we checked in existing Management Pack details, we found that HDI Cluster only support SCOM 2012 or SCOM 2012 SP1 version. Right now we are using SCOM 2016 (UR7) for all kind of production monitoring.

    Now we have been asked to build a new Management Group for SCOM 2012 Sp1 to be able to enable monitoring for HDI Cluster. i would like to know if Product Group Team is working on releasing HDI Cluster monitoring Management Pack for SCOM 2016 or not and\or if…

  12. Bug in Azure Management Pack 1.8.0.1 with parameter replacements.

    There is a potential bug in Azure Management Pack 1.8.0.1, noticed when we upgraded to the new version recently.

    The following workflow and instances will encounter the parameter replacement failure.

    Workflow: Microsoft.SystemCenter.MicrosoftAzure.AlertsMonitor.Insights.ActivityLog.Alert

    Instance: Public IP address changes on CHR-Azure Enterprise subscription (microsoft.insights/activityLogAlerts)

    Instance: Notify on apphosting related resources (microsoft.insights/activityLogAlerts)

    Instance: NotifyOnRegionIssues (microsoft.insights/activityLogAlerts)

    Failing replacement: $Data/Property[@Name='TargetResourceIds']$

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

  15. Extend MSC Operations Manager version 2019 to support earlier versions of Linux OSes.

    Please extend MSC Operations Manager version 2019 to support Red Hat Linux to version 6.x and SUSE Enterprise Linux versions 10.x and 11.x. One issue for SUSE Linux is the supported version of OpenSSL.

  16. 64bit version of VSAE missing

    Now that VSAE is available for recent versions of Visual Studio we are missing a 64bit version of the extensions. MP Simulator (32bit) won't work when run on a 64bit OS with a 64bit SCOM agent installed.

    In the past Microsoft had made available versions for both architectures.

  18. Update DB Virtual Log File workflow to use sys.dm_db_log_info instead of DBCC LOGINFO

    Hello,

    When the Version Agnostic management pack attempts to collect VLF counts, it uses DBCC LOGINFO("dbname") to achieve this. Would it be possible to update this workflow to use sys.dmdblog_info instead? This replaces DBCC LOGINFO as described in the below documentation:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/system-dynamic-management-views/sys-dm-db-log-info-transact-sql?view=sql-server-ver15#remarks

  19. Remove .NET framework v3.5 dependency in SCOM 2019 SDKs

    The latest SCOM 2019 SDKs and referenced MPs are using .NET framework v3.5 while seal and importing management packs via sdk/c#. Also it asked to install .NET framework 3.5 features. Because .NET Framework 3.5 is not included by default in Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016/2019.

    Sample Code: https://systemscenter.ru/scom2012sdk.en/

  20. Add the "Alert Closure Failure" dashboard to the Operations Console

    Most administrators are using the Operations Console to manage their SCOM environment, it would be practical if the "Alert Closure Failure" dashboard existed in the Operations Console as well and not only in the Web Console.
