I’ve had so much positive feedback about my original SCOM Health Check Script and also the updated v2 one which a lot of people thanked me for updating it with the fresh new style. However I also got some great feedback asking if I could turn it into a SCOM Report that could be run, scheduled and emailed from SCOM itself. Then you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve been working on it and soon plan to release my version 1.0 SCOM Health Check Report. So this new report will be like the previous one as far as content goes, giving you the same sort of information, except instead of being written in Windows PowerShell I wrote this using SQL Queries and SQL Report Builder. I’ve then taken that and populated it into a SCOM Management Pack so you guys can simply import it straight into SCOM and schedule it to email you…how easy is that!

It has a slightly different look to my previous reports and I’m still playing around with styles so I haven’t actually settled on a final one but it will most likely look something like this..

SCOM Report v1.0

For those of you that have downloaded and use my SCOM 2012 Daily Health Check Script, I thank you for your support and your terrific feedback. Today I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve updated this SCOM Daily Check Script to support SCOM 2016 whilst maintaining backward compatibility with SCOM 2012! So yes it’ll run on either version!

This version also has a couple of minor additions as well…firstly support for the New SCOM 2016 Maintenance Mode Schedules (a great new feature)… those will appear in your report if you have any configured and of course if you are indeed running SCOM 2016. They will look like this:

Its been a long time in development but I’m happy to announce my second SCOM Health Check script. This one is over 3500 lines of code, lots of css, html and javascript and its my gift to you guys, the SCOM Community.

So what does this new version offer? Firstly, a much, much nicer report. Fancy graphs, nice clean tables and some genuinely useful information about your SCOM Environment.

 

  • A Data Volume graph where you can instantly see the amount of Alerts, Events, Performance Data and State Changes over the last 7 days
  • The Health State of your SCOM Agents
  • A Graph of your Alert Statistics – how many Open or Closed Alerts
  • Your Management Server Health, Versions, Server Uptime & the number of Workflows they are running. Now updated to include Gateways! Also CPU, Disk and Memory Graphs for each!
  • Any Open Warning or Critical Alerts for your Gateways and Management Servers.
  • The Top 5 Alerts by Repeat Count (use this to identify recurring problems)
  • The Top 5 Events by Computer (see which computers are the noisiest)
  • Your Operational Database & Data Warehouse Servers…how much space they are using, free space, file sizes and locations.
  • Your Operational Database and Data Warehouse Backups. Make sure they are running.
  • Are the Databases being groomed? You’ll be able to tell instantly!
  • Find out what is using all of the space in your Operational Database & Data Warehouse Databases.
  • The Reporting Server and Web Console Server URL’s and if they are OK.
  • The Status of your Scheduled Reports
  • If there are any Overrides in the ‘Default Management Pack’
  • What Discoveries ran in the last 24 Hours and what Properties were changed?
  • Identify agents that are lower than the highest version installed. Use this to see which agents should be upgraded to the most current version
  • Identify Agents that are not Remoteable.
  • Is Agent Proxying Enabled?
  • What Objects are in Maintenance?
  • And it’s available in 2 different colors!
