I have loads of Windows services I want to monitor but if I use the add monitoring wizard in SCOM I’ll be here all day creating them. Anyone know of a faster way or am I going to be working late again!?
Hahaha! You’ll probably still be working late any way but there’s a community MP that has been created which should be able to help you with this 😉 http://kevingreeneitblog.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/scom-new-community-mp-for-monitoring.html
What I would do is create one, and save it to a new Management Pack. I would then export the MP and edit the XML file (using Notepad ++ or similar), copying and pasting the relevant parts. I would then do a search and replace for the service name.
Then re-import the MP and Test.
You need to know a little bit about the XML structure of the MPs but it is fairly intuitive. (Hell – I figured it out!).
