  1. Prevent running MaintenanceMode from being overwritten

    Using the Maintenance Mode Scheduler that came with SCOM 2016 is pretty cool but there is no mechanism to detect if a server is already in MM. If we put a server in maintenance mode e. g. for 48 hours and someone else doesn't know this and schedules another MM let's say for 2 hours then the ealier scheduled MM of 48 hours will be overwritten and the MM ends after the 2 hours. So there should be a logic which checks if a MM is already set and how long. If the newly scheduled time period is shorter than…

    With SCOM 2019 UR2, maintenance schedule will end at furthest end time. if there is a conflict in maintenance schedule on an object , then the furthest end time will be honored.

  2. Solve Maintenance mode Conflict by use the furthest end time.

    Best way to explain is an exemple.

    I put a logical drive in Maintenance Mode for 60 Min.

    If my collegue put the windows Computer in maintenance WITH Child Iems for 15 min during my maintenance, My logical disk will be out of maintenance a the end on the Computer Maintenance.

    Normaly i expect the maintenance on my Logical disk should be end at his scheduled end time MINIMUM never Before.

    Thanks

    This feature is planned for 2019 UR2. The furthest end time on the object will be honored with 2019 UR2.

  3. Auditing changes in SCOM

    I have no way to know who made what changes in the SCOM environment. There are multiple admins and they change settings such as Install MPs/ Remove MPs/ Change Overrides/ Author new rules/ Change Admin settings/ Create new users/etc. There is never a way to know who did what.

    This is a feature request to Audit all major changes to the SCOM environment.

  4. Prevent Management Servers to be put into Maintenance Mode

    Make a bool setting on each Management Server object to check mark, that this MS cannot be accidentally put into Maintenenance Mode. This would avoid a lot of Problems for customers who put servers into Maintenance Mode.
