  1. need diagnostic and recovery tasks for log monitoring

    seems that when i setup a log monitor there is not an diagnostic and recovery tab. so i am unable to add any of these tasks with a log monitor. other monitors have a diagnostic and recovery tab so automation is able to be added with those monitors. however for log monitoring, we have to take manual reaction to these alerts since the diagnostic and recovery tab does not exist. we need to have that option for log monitors.

  2. Fix Issue with Rollup for Exchange Health Set MailboxSpace

    With multiple disks on an Exchange server for DAG all the database health for low log space all rollup to the server. So if a another disks breaches the threshold an alert is not sent as the existing one is still there and has already sent an alert.

  3. 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.

  4. Java EE MP (v10.19.1011.0): Incorrect supported app server versions in JEEAppServerLibrary.ps1

    I was trying to manually add a WebLogic 12c application for monitoring in SCOM 2019 and was encountering the following error:

    .\NewJEEAppServer.ps1 -ManagementServer MGMTSVR1 -Target https://app.site.domain.com:443 -JEEAppServerType WebLogic
    WebClient call failed to server: https://app.site.domain.com:443
    Unable to determine the application server type and version : https://app.site.domain.com:443

    After trying the old management pack (v7.5.1038.0), this error did not appear and the application appeared to be successfully added, however no further discoveries take place. I assumed this was down to different versions of BeanSpy and the .ps1 scripts themselves, so reverted this and looked further into the new management pack scripts.

    It appears…

  5. Version Agnostic MP (7.0.15.0) Clustered Instance Discovery Issues

    The version agnostic management pack (v7.0.15.0) appears to have issues discovering clustered SQL Server instances. I deployed it alongside a fresh SCOM 2019 build without any of the old SQL Server management packs imported, and only some instances/databases are being discovered – it’s a very strange mix of results. We have a SQL 2014 instance that gets discovered fully (including databases), a SQL 2016 instance which is discovered with its databases but are not monitored, and SQL 2016/2017 instances that aren’t discovered at all.

    I then imported the SQL 2016 management pack (v7.0.15.0) and it discovered all the clustered instances/databases…

  6. I would love the ability to monitor Log analytics entries with Scom... just like windows event logs is done today..

    Today this can be done with a powershell script or creating a rule with azure monitor (the later sucks as no data from the actual row can be passed on).
    A simple wizard would be great... just as the windows event log monitors/rules

  8. Add overridable perfomance collection optimization for nix management packs

    We have 1200 win agents and 250 unix agent in SCOM

    So, nix agents produces more perf data than all windows agents

    Reason: there are no optimization for performance counters at all

    Yes, you can rewrite and add module , but its almost impossible due CMDB sync in big companies

    It will be great to add overridable percentage perf. optimization

    (Same situation in sql mp, dfs mp...everywhere)

  10. DFSR management pack performance colleciton rules bug

    Performance rules in DFSR management packs do not work in latest versions. Looks like "include all instances" is not selected in any of them. Recreating these rules with this option enabled collects and shows perf data.

  11. Azure HDI Cluster monitoring

    Hi Team,

    We have been asked to enable monitoring for HDI Cluster through SCOM and when we checked in existing Management Pack details, we found that HDI Cluster only support SCOM 2012 or SCOM 2012 SP1 version. Right now we are using SCOM 2016 (UR7) for all kind of production monitoring.

    Now we have been asked to build a new Management Group for SCOM 2012 Sp1 to be able to enable monitoring for HDI Cluster. i would like to know if Product Group Team is working on releasing HDI Cluster monitoring Management Pack for SCOM 2016 or not and\or if…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  15. Design Scom to support Kusto language instead of SQL Query

    Currently we are able to collect monitoring data, Audit through ACS or dashboard deployment, either by Scom Console or VSAE or other partner tools. Depending on the dashboard and customer skill, it's a struggle to create these tasks and many give up and move for a easier competitor monitoring tool.
    With Kusto Language used by Azure Monitor, many customers had a good feedback because it's easier to create dasboards and query data. However some ones are restrict to use Cloud Solution due to company policy and prefer using on-premises solutions.
    Another barrier for using SQL query is a dependence from…
