  • Disabling all Discoveries in a SCOM 2012/2016 Management Pack

    I’m not completely sure that I’ve ever needed to disable all discoveries in an MP…(some of them yes)…In most cases if I want none of the discoveries then I may as well just delete the MP.

  • List all Servers and their IP Addresses in SCOM 2016

    Today I was asked for a list of all Servers that we have configured in SCOM, plus the IP Addresses that it’s configured with. This is pretty easy to do and here’s how. At the time I had open the SQL Management Studio so I chose to query the Operations Manager Database directly: Use [OperationsManager] SELECT DisplayName, IPAddress […]

    A while ago I wrote a post about Migrating Notifications from SCOM 2007 to 2012. So this post is an update to that, showing how we can migrate SCOM 2007 or SCOM 2012 Notifications to SCOM 2016. The good news is just like before it’s actually a pretty simple process to migrate the existing ones.
