  1. Bring in Rule to Monitor/collect Top Processes in Memory/CPU utilization and make it available in Reporting

    Bring in Rule to Monitor/collect Top Processes in Memory/CPU utilization and make it available in Reporting

    Server Administrators usually request us for the Top utilizers of CPU/RAM for a Particular Time.
    This data will be useful for them to investigate the Cause of Performance issues.

    We must have a report wherein when we select the time and Server name , It should show the Top Processes using memory/cpu.

  2. A Maintenance schedules schedule created by an operator should adhere to scoping rules

    When an operator creates a maintenance schedules schedule this is only visible to that person. As a result this can also only be changed by that person.
    Only when an administrator creates a schedule this is visible to other administrators.

    It would be good that when an operator creates a schedule this is visible by members of his user role or even better it adheres the scoping structure. This would allow colleagues of the same team to modify schedules.

  3. Web Application (URL) Monitoring also need Resource Pool Concept to ensure 100% availability of monitoring during disaster

    It’s obvious that alerts generated for all monitored URLs when assigned watcher nodes (SCOM servers in most cases) unavailable for quite sometime during reboot (as part of patching) or disaster recovery. It really causes confusions to customers when their application or URL is available. I feel having resource pool concept will really help to improve these situations.

  6. Monitor Memory Usage in MB or GB

    Currently SCOM can monitor "Available Memory in MB". But it does not have any monitor for monitoring Memory being used either in MB or GB. All monitoring tools have this basic functionality sadly SCOM is missing such a simple monitor.
    Please add "Used Memory in MB/GB" monitor in SCOM.

  7. SCCM MP Client Discovery Hangs

    In the latest version of the SCCM Management pack (5.0.8239.1010), the client discovery (Microsoft.SystemCenter2012.ConfigurationManager.ClientDiscovery) hangs on machines that don't have the expected registry keys, it appears. It just runs forever until a 10,000 event is logged, then it starts again.

    I found other users reporting this here:

  9. Ability to turn off alerts not able to be closed in SCOM 2019

    We need to be able to disable the feature preventing alerts from being closed if the monitor is in an unhealthy state.

    As it currently stands integration with a Service desk such as Netcool is problematic as if the alert is closed in the service desk when the writeback happens to SCOM the chain breaks as the alert cannot always be closed in SCOM.

    Feature below:

    If you close an alert generated by a monitor (from the Operations Console “Active alerts” view) which is in a unhealthy state then the following message will be displayed and the alert will not…

  10. Enable Edge for Web Availability and Transaction tests monitor

    Many new web sites now are blocking IE to accept only Edge. So Web transaction recorder is not working. Even a simple GET test is not working. Is there plan to enable Edge as a working browser for SCOM 2019 Web Application Monitoring templates ?

  12. Alert "Severity" and "Priority" does not show the exact value in Email notifications in SCOM 2016 & 2019

    When an Email Alert is generated from SCOM, The Alert subject line & Email body display the Alert "Severity" and "Priority" in the form of numbers. I.e # Severity 0,1,2 instead of mentioning the actual severity

    Severity : Critical , Warning or Information

    Priority : High, Medium or Low

    It is a bit difficult for end user to remember which number represents what. It would great to see a fix for this on a future UR.

  16. create a SCOM 2019 UR1 integrated installer to allow for GMSA

    Currently you have to install SCOM 2019 then upgrade to UR1 and then change all accounts to GMSA. This means duplication of effort and multiple accounts. If you want to add a new MS you still need the old sdk and action accounts. We need a new installer so that GMSA accounts can be used from the beginning.

  17. 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.

  19. 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)

  20. 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.
