  1. SCOM 1801: Login Session Expired on Internet Browser related to Web Console

    Hi,
    when user or admin browse alert link URL to SCOM 1801 Web Console, then the user first get the error
    „Your session with the Web console server expired“, although the user was not logged on before.

    If user choose then „Use Alternate Credentials“, he/she can log in.

    Microsoft Premium Support says that is "by design". We cannot call the BUGS "by design". This is a BUG in SCOM 1801, and must be solved asap.
    We have a very large IT infrastructure and this feature is very important for us.

    Best regards

    Birdal

  2. SQL Integration MP Discovers Duplicate Integration Services

    The 2014 and 2016 SQL Integration packs have "Discover SQL Server 2014 DB Installation Source (seed)" discoveries that are targeted toward the "Windows Server" class. In environments where SSIS may be installed on SQL Clusters (and SCOM has the clustering MPs imported), this can lead to duplicate instances of the Integration services being discovered. Clustered resource "servers" are also populated into the "Windows Server" class. I creates groups populated with "Windows Server" objects with the "Is Virtual Node" property set to "True", and override the discoveries using these groups. Pan Optional MP could be included that would be imported if…

  5. Create new channel for subscriptions - REST API

    When creating a new subscription, it would be nice not to rely on custom scripts but have custom HTTP API webhook to send the alert to. Webhooks seem to be a standard way in 2019, and would give a nice refreshment to next iteration of SCOM.

  6. Linux Agent 1.6.3 (SCOM 1801) should not update sudoers and create users

    If you deploy the Linux omsagent using the "Discovery Wizard", the following modification on the system are done:
    - three (!) users are added (omi, nxautomation and omsagent)
    - some extensive sudoers permissions are given to them via /etc/sudoers.d/omsagent

    Many of our clients do not allow scripts to be run as root, where the executed has write permissions on the script. Exactly this is the case for most of the scripts.

    REQUESTS:
    1. More documentation why these modifications are required
    2. Can the fluenD, omsagent work without them
    3. creating users must be optional. Many centrally maintain users and sudoers…

  8. Incorporate Alert Correlation tehniques into SCOM

    We have multiple SCOM servers and management group and our service desk constantly ask why when there is a problem with a server or service do we get so any alerts. Can we only display a root cause or an aggregated alert with the subsequent alerts attached. E.g. A high level alert with all other alerts display underneath this generic alert?

  9. Optional Event Collection MP for DNS MPs version 10.0.9.3 Doesn't Enable 2016 Rules

    Looks like maybe the optional event collection MP wasn't updated to enable the 2016 rules?

    we have a absolutely new SCOM 2016 infrastructure and had had until today issue with the SCOM 2016 Web Console.

  14. De-Activate and Activate a Management Pack

    It would be handy to De-Activate a MP instead of deleting it. Or set a MP in maintenance.

  15. Allow dynamic grouping of all objects that are associated with a given criteria

    For better alert Distribution it would be great to be able to create dynamic Groups that contain all objects based on a given criteria. I create a Group, provide a servername as criteria for example and all objects that have a relation to the Server become members of the Group (SQL DBs, IIS Websites, Hyper-V Host, HDDs, etc.). Right now it his very hard to accomplish this task. This feature would be awesome.

  16. Web Console - make Details pane resizable in Safari and Chrome on macOS

    I'm using a Mac and open the web console of SCOM 1807 in Chrome or Safari. Clicking on a result in Results pane, I get only a couple of lines in the Details pane. Although I can drag and drop the grey line between the Results and Details pane, it constantly reverts to it's former position.

  19. Azure MP and Log Analytics MP

    These two management packs break each other when deployed together. BOTH management packs require workarounds to fix an issue with Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory, and they are each dependent upon 2 different versions of that assembly, so it is impossible to configure both at the same time without continuously swapping out these .dlls. Additionally, both management packs come up with many missing assemblies, which have to be copied from other locations to get them to work at all. Where is the quality control?

  20. Later versions of Visual Studio 2017 crashes with VSAE installed

    This was semi-dormant as a ticket on Developer Community for two months before it was very recently closed: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/318019/visual-studio-crashes-using-scom-vsae.html

    It is basically impossible to with with MP projects in VS 15.8.3 and later.

    I need to be able to use the later versions of Visual Studio 2017 AND VSAE together, and I cannot really have a bunch of versions installed side-by-side. (Already running VS2015 besides VS2017).
