  1. SCOM 2016 Reporting Installation Documentation needs improvement.

    The Microsoft instructions are confusing/incorrect for this installation.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/deploy-install-reporting-server

    For more information, see System Requirements for System Center 2016 - Operations Manager. System Requirements for System Center 2016 - Operations Manager link <https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/orchestrator/system-requirements>

    The above takes you to Orchestrator requirements not Operations Manager.

    Here is the correct link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/plan-system-requirements

    Then the instruction has this:

    Ensure that SQL Server Reporting Services has been correctly installed and configured. For more information about how to install and configure SQL Server Reporting Services, see SQL Server Installation (SQL Server 2012).

    The above is 2012 and not 2016.

    • Use Group Managed Service Account for Windows Run As accounts

      Allow Group Managed Service Accounts as Run As Accounts.

      Managing Passwords of RunAs Accounts can be a pain, why not using Group Managed Service Accounts for Windows account type.

      • Allow update of MP version in VSAE when using Auto-increment version

        If you open a VSAE project on a new machine, the version number for the MP (if using Auto-increment) will reset to the default 1.0.0.1. However this Mp could be on version 1.0.41 and won't install unless you rebuild the soltion 40+ times or turn off Auto-Increment.

        It would be nice if we could set the value in the deployment tab of the MP properties and VSAE increment from that number on the next build

          include two new monitors in all of the UX based MP's that does monitoring of memory by percentage used. monitors can be disabled by default. monitor A would calculate percentage free (free / total). Monitor B would calculate the same but include cache

            • signed management pack scripts

              In my environment all AV exclusion in SCOM Agents are not allowed. Is there anyway to have the management(sealed and unsealed) pack scripts signed. Only scripts(powershell, vbscript) that are signed are allowed in my environment.

              • Reduce CPU impact for SCOMpercentageCPUTimeCounter script

                The SCOMpercentageCPUTimeCounter (vbs or ps1) used by Agent processor utilization rule and monitor runs on each agent every 5 minutes (321 sec) and with a sync time set to 00:00.

                This causes CPU spike on virtualization hosts.

                  SCOM console seems to not fully support 4K resolution. If you open overrides window the enable checkboxes are hidden and many other views are not aligned properly.

                          Please add tasks to Stop/Start SQL 2014/2016 Analysis Services and Reporting Services. This is available in SQL 2005-2012 MP but was not put into the SQL 2014-2016 SSAS/SSRS MP's. SQL 2014-2016 DB Engine has these tasks. We have DBAs that have used this task in SCOM for years but are unable to Stop/Start services since SQL 2014.

                                      • AD Show Replication monitor not working in AD Domain Services MP 10.0.2.1

                                        AD Show Replication monitor does not work and will always be in a GOOD state.
                                        The reason to this behavior is the sReplicaDC variable used as an input to the PingServer function in the AD_Replication_Check.vbs script. sReplicaDC contains a space in the end.
                                        This will make the PingServer function to always return false and not change the state on this monitor.
