  1. Allow SCOM 2019 to uncheck "Install APM" by default in the deployment wizard

    It's a big PITA to remember to uncheck the APM box when deploying agents. It's often forgotten by some and we have to go back and strip APM from the target agent. I want to be able to change the default behavior!

  2. SCOM Installer Failure with RC4 Protocol Disabled

    SCOM 1801/1807 installer and discovery wizard fails to work until I had to enable RC4 on the DC, SCOM management server, and the SCOM database server. Please remove the RC4 dependency.

  3. After Management Server removal, some orphaned objects remain

    After the deletion of a management server according the description in https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh456439(v=sc.12).aspx some objects will remain
    Those objects can just get deleted through manual operations in the database. ==> Custom SP dbo.sp_RemoveObjectByTypedManagedEntityId
    The Health Service Watcher Object always remains after deletion.
    This behaviour is reproducible with SCOM 2012 R2 and SCOM 2016

    Expected Behavior
    The customer expects that if he strictly follows the step-by-step instructions to remove a management server from the management group, nothing should remain somewhere, neither in the database nore in the filesystem, registry or somewhere else

    Analysis
    I reproduced the problematic behavior in two different environments…

  5. Add load-balancing support for the new SCOM 1801 Web Console

    Add load-balancing support for the new SCOM 1801 Web Console. This isn´t supported in SCOM 2012 or 2016, but works perfectlyfine to set up and get running with a network load-balancer.

    This is ia must-have at least in the new web console.
