  2. Need a method for perpetual maintenance mode in SCOM 2016

    I want to apply a maintenance mode schedule that will keep a group of servers in mmode 'permanently'. I've tried this with a daily schedule for a duration of 1445 minutes so there's over lap when the next run happens, but it will stop running after a couple days.

  4. SCOM 2019 Web console: Maintenance Schedule/User Roles enables Active Alerts dasboards

    My need is enable only Maintenance Schedules view for users/groups and use self made Alert views in Web Console, but every time enabling Maintenance Schedule @ User Role Properties in Dashboard and Views enables Active Alerts Dashboard and Alert Closure Failure views. Could this be fixed so that only Maintenance Schedule view is possible?

    I would like also that at in Maintenance Schedule / Create I could disable Available Objects viewing automatically available servers/objects (meaning that user must know object / server name and type it to available objects field to get it for view)

  5. IDENTITY Arithmetic overflow in ManagedEntityTypeImageRebuild

    After running SCOM environment for a long time I got this error in Event Log:

    Exception 'SqlException': Sql execution failed. Error 8115, Level 16, State 1, Procedure ManagedEntityTypeImageRebuild, Line 56, Message: Arithmetic overflow error converting IDENTITY to data type int.

    Problem lies in the SP where a DELETE statement is executed instead of a TRUNCATE TABLE statement.

  6. Option to repeat email notifications until resolved

    Option to resend notifications on a schedule. For example, send the notification once every three hours until the alert is closed.

  7. Install-SCOMAgent cmdlet with -noAPM parameter SCOM 2019

    We want to automate the installation of the SCOM agent using PowerShell for our SCOM 2019 environment. The documentation for the Install-SCOMAgent cmdlet has an optional parameter -NoAPM to prevent installing the APM component on every agent. According to the docs this optional parameter is no longer valid with SCOM 2019. Is there another way to skip the installation of the APM component using PowerShell for SCOM 2019?

  8. Manually run an Object Discovery

    Give within the SCOM console the ability to run an Object Discovery manually with a simplified wizard. In the wizard you can select the group of systems where the discovery need to run on and run the discovery manually.

  10. The possibility to start a maintenance mode schedule manually

    Today when you press stop on a MM schedule, the objects in the schedule leaves MM.
    It would be nice it there were a 'run now' button. Just like in the Windows Task scheduler.

  11. Agent authentication using key

    The agent supports connecting to Log Analytics with a workspace ID and Key. Allowing agents from any cloud and domain to connect. I recommend adding a similar agent verification mentor to SCOM. This would improve the ability to manage agents in untrusted domains and external clouds.

  12. Make company knowledge in SCOM editable without Office

    A small but important issue have haunted SCOM since its very beginning: You cannot edit Company knowledge without installing Office on the machine you are using to connect to the managementserver, which for larger companies most likely is a TerminalServer.

    I have used SCOM for a decade now and it puzzles me that Microsoft still does not manage to either incorporate a rich text editor or at least let us edit the textfield directly without formatting in the operations console.

    As a result, we sadly are not using this feature.

  13. "Web Console"

    The HTML Web Console should have the same display features as the full client, for all monitoring views:
    -The views should display all the columns that are defined
    -All columns should be sortable
    -The views should allow for personalization
    -The user should be able to resize the columns

  19. 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?
