I’ve used custom groups to capture monitored services within SCOM, each service has a parent group which in turn has subgroups containing the actual monitored objects. This model works great as we can target alert subscriptions at the parent level (requires health roll-ups in place from the subgroups).
I’ve recently created a group availability perspective as per this excellent guide:
However we have hundreds of groups and it’s a little tiresome, and slow, scrolling though to find the parent ones I’m after to view it’s availability. So, what I’m hoping for is to create a dashboard containing an aggregate SLA tile for each parent group (whilst not displaying the availability for the sub groups) so we can present a succinct dashboard of these critical services when required.
Hope that makes sense?
Any assistance greatly appreciated!
Not sure if understand your question correctly.
Maybe this could work. It takes a little work but if you use standardized names for the top level groups I guess you could do a filter that only displays sla for members with name %topgroup% ?
