SCOM 2012 & SCOM 2012 R2 Daily Check PowerShell Script & HTML Report v2.0…(coming soon)

A while back (2014) I wrote and posted a SCOM Daily Health Check script. I would like to thank you all for the positive feedback, comments and suggestions that you provided me with. Soon…I’ll be giving back again with a new and improved version…and it’s considerably improved too!

So what’s coming in v2.0?

Well, a lot, but we’ll get to that soon when I publish it. But the main thing is, it looks a lot better (I hope you agree). Here’s a quick glance at what it looks like although that might change before release (I have a few different styles that I’m playing with…maybe I’ll release more than one).

SCOM Dashboard v2

 

I’ve also tried to put a bit of structure into the code so it’ll be easily adaptable if you wanted to turn this into a Management Pack specific Dashboard…like an Exchange or Lync one (which I may very well do myself anyway).

In the meantime if you guys have any suggestions or you’d like to see certain things in this script/dashboard please let me know and I’ll consider it.

Edit: An update to this, today I was working with a client and we were discussing Lync. So I decided to use the existing script and mock up a Dashboard based on the Key Health Indicators that Microsoft suggest (plus a few requested tweaks). Obviously the client uses SCOM so we’re already collecting some of the data that Microsoft suggest…anyway, here’s that report in white (the script will handle either color output).

Lync DashboardI’m still working on a few code changes so keep the feedback coming…I appreciate it.

 

EDIT: The script has been released: http://www.culham.net/scom/scom-2012-scom-2012-r2-daily-check-powershell-script-html-report-v2-0-released/. Enjoy 🙂

This looks awesome!!!

I appreciate the comment, thank you 🙂

Nice improvement, looking forward to seeing the final product.

Me too 🙂 I’m working on it 🙂

This looks really professional and can be every useful indeed. Was going to suggest maybe display the most recurrent alerts per computer, but I see you already have Top 5 Alerts by repeat count .. so that’s perfect.

Thanks Todd…hope you like the finished product

Nice! I use the old one wich is great!

Glad you like it. Hope you love the new one 🙂

Nice your blog posts has been very helpful in learning and understanding scom fundamentals. i had recently used your old health check Report. Eagerly waiting for the new one 🙂

Thank you for the nice feedback. Always happy to help 🙂

Hi Tim,

Can anything on similar lines be made exclusively for Linux server health check for all the Linux servers in the environment ?

thanks,
Sameer

Hi Sameer, absolutely yes. We’d just need to pop in a bit of powershell to get that info from SCOM or the Database directly and present it in a nice table. When I release the code hopefully it’ll make sense, if not contact me and I’ll give you a hand.

This is very well done. Thank you for all of the support to the community. Truly appreciated.

My pleasure Alex…hopefully I’ll have it out soon…just been really busy with work lately.

Hi Tim.
This looks fantastic. I think the release of your code and report are more hotly anticipated than the upcoming release of SCOM 2016!

Haha, I wish 🙂 But thank you so much for the feedback…I really appreciate it.

So True, eagerly waiting for the new Health Check Report. Lots to learn from it 🙂

Looking forward to the new release

When is it going to be released ? This looks amazing !

Very, very soon. Sadly its taken a backseat to work but I’ve had a bit of time to spend on it lately so I’ll release a scaled back version soon as there’s a lot I wish to add to it.

Still waiting eagerly 🙂

Hi Tim, I really appreciate the previous script.

Perhaps you could include the status of scheduled reports in the script?

Thank you for the feedback. Yes I’m sure I could do that for you 🙂

Hi Mark, the new script has been released and includes a table of scheduled reports as requested. Hope you like it 🙂

Looking forward with the 2.0 version 🙂

love the pre-view. did you have an ETA for release?

Thank you…Next week 🙂

Very looking forward to this new health report. Thanks for the existing version!

Thanks Kris, I’ll release it today.

Hello, any news about the release ??? 😉

It’ll be today…check back shortly 🙂
