Enable activedirectory group usage in scom
The group functonality is not good. You should be able to use active directory groups to target MP:s/views and so on.
Olivier Kouadio commented
SCOM should be able to create and populate AD group membership as SCCM does.
Dominique Zybala commented
Should also be able to create a network device group dynamically based on ipaddress subnetworks.
Kevin Holman commented
This ability is already present. However, it is very complicated to use. We have to write a custom developed MP with Group Populator module, then leverage an LDAP module to query AD for the group membership, and reconcile that with what is already in SCOM otherwise it will bomb out. This should be a simple UI to query AD, get a group, then SCOM UI handles the rest.

Agreed - Should be able to create a SCOM Group from an AD Security Group.
