  1. SQL Version Agnostic MP Remove Overlaping Alerts based on clusters

    There has to be a way to reduce the alerts from a cluster when the primary node is executing a job and the secondary node does not run the same task therefore creating an alert for a "job did not complete". With the number of databases we have trying to adjust all of the schedules is not easy. Can a check be added to see which node is the primary then verify the on the secondary node if the ID is not newer than the primary do not alert.

  2. SQL Version Agnostic MP Remove overrides stored in "Microsoft SQL Server on Windows (Monitoring)"

    storing overrides in a sealed MP limit the possibilities to tune management packs

  3. SQL Version Agnostic MP (7.0.15.0) PrincipalName Removed for DBEngines

    The new SQL 2017+ management pack for SCOM changes the PrincipalName for DBEngines. It now shows the NetBIOS type instance name instead of the Parent FQDN of the host. Additionally, the alerts do not have the field PrincipalName populated.

    This is a breaking change to orchestration and reporting.

    Would it be possible to return the PrincipleName and the Instance name?

  4. SCOM SQL 2017+ DB Log Free Space in Megabyte

    In the SQL 2017+ Management Pack is a Monitor to monitor the free DB log space in percent. We would like to monitor the free DB log space additionally in MB. We need this because we have very much DBs, and they are from very small to very big. Its to much effort to set for every DB another percent treshold. And if we set a threshold 10%, this is good for small DBs, but if we have a big DB, there is no problem when free space is for example 10% but still 100GB. So we wanna set a…

  5. 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.

  6. Improve SPN detection on SQL MP

    Today the SQL MP will not check the IP adresse the SQL Instance is listen. The SQL MP looks for the port. It then assumes that the IP Adresse is the adresse of the FQDN of the server. But this is not always the case. Please improve the system and look for the IP adresse. Then you can derive the right FQDN.
    In my opinion at the moment this is just not correct implemented.

    Thank's

  7. Make the monitors on SQL agents jobs more flexible

    Currenly it is not possible to configure the SQL Agent Job monitors Long Running Jobs and Last Run State to check on specific days a week. The parameters Start Time, End Time and Days Of Week Mask would be most welcome.

    Many SQL Agent jobs are configured to run once week or even once a month.
