Get a Monitors alert description – in Powershell

Get a Monitors alert description – in Powershell

I’ve been active in a post on reddit the last couple of days, and I wanted to share my results with you all. The OP wanted to know if it was possible to get an Alert Description, without the alert being created by SCOM.

And of course its possible.

First of all, we need to find the monitor ID – In this example I’ve gone with the ‘AD Site Availability Health Rollup Monitor’

Monitor multiple fileshares (up/down) – With Powershell in SCOM

First of all, its been a while – but I am still here.

We had a VBscript that monitored if our fileshares were up or down, but recently it started to fail – giving false positives. (And we hate that!) So i decided to give it a go with the SquaredUp Community Powershell Monitoring Management Pack. I’ve had this MP in a while, but never really used it so its about time.

So I thought that I would use this post to give you all a short description of all the management packs that I’ve create for the community.

Here’s the list:

Maintenance Mode App Updated (0.5a)

Maintenance Mode App Updated (0.5a)

After a few months of testing, I am ready to release the next version of the Maintenance Mode Desktop Application. I’ve updated the method used to stop the maintenance mode, and I’ve changed some start-up scripts.

There are still some bugs in this version, and on some systems that I’ve tested this on – the start of the application is VERY slow… I am of course working on a fix for this.
