    Dontchya hate that?  🙂

    I’d much rather write a new query than re-engineer someone elses and trust it.

    But I myself am no Tsql expert.  Most of these above that I have written are pretty basic joins from simple trables/views.  The complex ones are always something I got from someone else and just published it.  I think the most complex one I ever wrote was the Outage and Maintenance report, and I had to get some help on that one.  Dont feel bad.

    Need little help here. After updating Scom2007 R2 with CU6 hotfix and approving 'pending agents', i ran the sql query "To view all agents missing a specific hotfix " using your article. Now i see that about 100 agents are missing the hotfix, although 'Pending Management' node in SCOM console does not list them. From your CU6 article I understand that manually installed agents need hotfix to be installed manually.

    Now, if I run the sql query that will set all agents back to Remotely Manageable, will it allow me to update agents with the CU6 hotfix? Your feedback is much appreciated.

    UPDATE MT_HealthService

    SET IsManuallyInstalled=0

    WHERE IsManuallyInstalled=1

    Re:  SCE

    I cannot say as I dont support SCE, nor have I even seen the product.  🙂

    However – I believe it should… as the DB’s are very similar.  If you can see dbo.AlertView then the error message you are getting is simply because you dont have enough rights, or you are running it against the wrong database…. make sure you are executing it against "OperationsManager" and not "Master"

  8. Kevin Holman says:

    Ravi – I will answer this here – but I am not sure why you posted this on my SQL query page?

    The problem with your statement is #3 is not a fact.

    The agent *initiates* to communication channel over 5723 TCP, always.  This means the communication BEGINS from the agent, to the management server.  However, once that communication channel is established, the communications is bidirectional.  It is always opened initially by the agent, but from that point forward, the management server can also communicate to the agent.   For the purposes of a firewall, the direction is from the agent to the MS, because the firewall inspects the initial communication channel.

    When the management server/RMS notifies the agent of updated config available – this occurs over 5723 TCP.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Hi Kevin,

    Considering the below facts:

    1. Agent initiates the communication with its reporting Management server.

    2. For Communication we need the TCP 5723 to be opened from Agent to RMS (uni-direction) only.

    3. Agent will pull all the data from its reporting MS. MS never push the data to an Agent.

    My question is:

    Once we do some configuration change, RMS/MS will notify their Agents for this change. On which port this communication happens (considering 5723 is open uni-directional) ?

    I appriciate if you could please shed some light on this.



  10. Kevin Holman says:

    You can get space used by type by using the large table query….  which is why I include and use that one all the time.  It could be made prettier… but it works.  There is also a report in SQL 2005 SP2 for reporting on table by size….  which will show you this.  The tables are named to be fairly self explanatory.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for your Queries. It helped me a lot and saved my time. Thanks.

    I got a request to pull Memory Utilization (Physical) report for all servers. When I use to pull the report from DW using "% committed bytes in use" counter, I am not getting the expected result. Am I looking correct counter?

    One of my server utilized 99% for 7 hrs but my report shows approximate 55%.

    Please help me if you have any query and correct COUNTER name.

  15. Kevin Holman says:

    Great question!

    There are queries you can use against the opsDB, drawing on the assumption that these are collected for both databases.  This is covered here:…/management-group-checkup-a-database-perspective.aspx


  16. Anonymous says:

    Very helpful queries, Kevin!

    Do you by chance have one that shows all alerts filtered to a specified SCOM group? I can find all alerts, and I can find groups, but can not seem to join them together.

    Hi Nayden,

    more than a great script; thank you. Any chance to add information about the fallback MS in this query?

  19. Kevin Holman says:

    Re:  Kent

    Kent – you are probably running SQL express – as this is the ONLY version fo SQL with such a limitation.  SQL express is NOT supported.

  20. Kevin Holman says:

    @Pallavi:  Everybody needs that.  Every customer I have worked with to date has asked for that since RTM.  Unfortunately, there is no easy way to get this from a report.  I am confident it could be done, but not with my feeble SQL skills.  We have asked the product teams for this, so I am hoping the next version of SCOM might have something like this built in mind.

  27. Orhan says:

    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to create report something like this,

    User Name              Number of Closed Alerts

    operatorname1             245

    Operatorname2             165

    I am querying the OperationManager Database my query is,

    SELECT     LastModifiedBy AS ‘User Name’, COUNT(*) AS ‘Number of Closed Alerts’

    FROM         AlertView

    WHERE     (ResolutionState = ‘255’)

    GROUP BY LastModifiedBy

    ORDER BY ‘Number of Closed Alerts’

    I am confused little in the alert view table which filed should I use for the date and time parameters.

     if I just want to get the closed alert count by specific user and by specific time is that field going to be "TimeResolved" or which one?

    Thank you.

  28. Orhan says:

    Hi Kevin,

    Your report works fine, but I needed to get last 7 days data which not included in your report because you are getting data from Datawarehouse by default we know Opsmgr keeps 7 days alert data in the OperationManager DB so I figured out from your query and modify it against OperationManager DB.

    My issue was I could not figured out which field should I for data and time parameter. I think I found out,

    Here is the final query I believe this is correct  

    SELECT     LastModifiedBy AS ‘User Name’, COUNT(*) AS ‘Number of Closed Alerts’

    FROM         AlertView

    WHERE     (ResolutionState = ‘255’)

    and TimeResolved between @startdate and @enddate

    GROUP BY LastModifiedBy

    ORDER BY ‘Number of Closed Alerts’

    Now I have another issue, SQL server TimeZone

    SQL server time  4 hours ahead than system time when I pull data from Report manager I am not getting accurate data from database.  Do you know how can we fix this issue?

    Thank you.

    How to get InternetInformationServices information from operations manager databse

  33. Nayden says:

    Here is one I found useful (I am sure it can be modified and improved, but this one works for me). It returns the Name, Action Account Identity, Install Date, Version, Health State, Availability (the greyed out icon state when the agent is not reporting back to the MS), and the MS it reports to. Some stuff is commented out, you can include it if you want…


    –[MT_C].[BaseManagedEntityId] AS [Id],

    [MT_C].[PrincipalName] AS [Name],













    WHEN MAX(CAST(A.[IsAvailable] AS int)) IS NULL


    ELSE CAST(MAX(CAST(A.[IsAvailable] AS int)) AS BIT)


    AS IsAvailable,

    –[BME].[BaseManagedEntityId] AS [HealthServiceId],

    –[TME].[ManagedTypeId] AS [HealthServiceTypeId],

    [BME2].[DisplayName] AS [ReportingTo]

    –[BME2].[TopLevelHostEntityId] AS [TargetHostId],

    –[HSC].[RelationshipTypeId] AS [CommunicationTypeId],


    FROM dbo.BaseManagedEntity (nolock)

    AS BME  

    INNER JOIN dbo.TypedManagedEntity AS TME       ON BME.[BaseManagedEntityId] = TME.[BaseManagedEntityId]  

    INNER JOIN dbo.Relationship AS HSC       ON HSC.[SourceEntityId] = BME.[BaseManagedEntityId]  

    INNER JOIN dbo.BaseManagedEntity AS BME2       ON BME2.[BaseManagedEntityId] = HSC.[TargetEntityId]  

    INNER JOIN dbo.MT_Computer AS MT_C       ON MT_C.[BaseManagedEntityId] = BME.[TopLevelHostEntityId]  

    INNER JOIN dbo.MT_HealthService AS MT_H       ON MT_H.[BaseManagedEntityId] = BME.[BaseManagedEntityId]  

    LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.State AS S ON BME.[BaseManagedEntityId] = S.[BaseManagedEntityId]

    AND S.[MonitorId] = dbo.fn_ManagedTypeId_SystemHealthEntityState()

    AND R.[RelationshipTypeId] = dbo.fn_ManagedTypeId_MicrosoftSystemCenterHealthServiceManagesEntity()

    AND R.[IsDeleted] = 0

    LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.Availability AS A ON A.[BaseManagedEntityId] = R.[SourceEntityId]  

    WHERE (( BME.[LastModified] >  ‘Jul 1 1999 1:24:55:063PM’ ) )

    AND (((TME.ManagedTypeId = ‘118C0F18-7A70-5F57-3A9B-EEAF1705B3FC’)

  34. Nayden says:

    Well, I am not sure whether it is possible or not – I myself am not a SQL expert… Since I could not find this info anywhere (documentation or via PowerShell) my last resort was to run a trace on the DB and reverse-engineer the query out of the thousands of lines of output. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    Thanks for the info and the pointer!

    The server itself says there is; "CREATE DATABASE or ALTER DATABASE failed because the resulting cumulative database size would exceed your licensed limit of 4096 MB per database" event ID 1827

  41. Kent Grundström says:

    Re: kevinhol

    Ahh… Yes you are right, it is, that is the version with the EBS, I’ve tried to replace it with a better version some time ago, but then the "normal" version was not runnable on the management server…

    BTW, the scripts worked like a breeze and now everything runs like a kittens purr, so thanks again for the tip…

  44. Tom Kasmir says:

    Will these work against a System Center 2007 Essentials SQL database?  Some queries do for me, some don’t.

    Example of a non-working one from "Top 20 Alerts in an Operational Database, by Alert Count"

    SELECT TOP 20 SUM(1) AS AlertCount, AlertStringName, AlertStringDescription, MonitoringRuleId, Name

    FROM Alertview WITH (NOLOCK)

    WHERE TimeRaised is not NULL

    GROUP BY AlertStringName, AlertStringDescription, MonitoringRuleId, Name

    ORDER BY AlertCount DESC


    I get – Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

    Invalid object name ‘Alertview’.

    I’m doing this in the SQL Mgmt. Studio, and I can see dbo.AlertView table under VIEWS which is under the OPERATIONSMANAGER database.

    – thank you

  45. Tom Kasmir says:

    Thanks. That’s it.

    All I had to do was add USE OperationsManager to the top of the query. Due to my lack of familiarity with SQL querying I assumed wrongly that just highlighting a database on the left would be sufficient.

    you can update all the queries with the following to help with local time, since SCOM records all time in UTC,

    declare @tmz int
    set @tmz = DATEDIFF(HOUR,getutcdate(), getdate())

    then in the body of the query,

    for example the query ‘Number of console Alerts per Day:’

    declare @tmz int
    set @tmz = DATEDIFF(HOUR,getutcdate(), getdate())

    SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), dateadd(hour,@tmz,TimeAdded), 102) AS DayAdded, COUNT(*) AS NumAlertsPerDay
    WHERE TimeRaised is not NULL
    GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), dateadd(hour,@tmz,TimeAdded), 102)
    ORDER BY DayAdded DESC

    I am looking for a query to pull out the availability and response time of website or webapplication. And is there any way to find the matching sql query for the reports that we pull from Reporting section in SCOM.
    Thanks in advance.

    We have the PKI MP installed and looking for a SQL query that will list all of the valid certificates (these are found in the Certificates-Valid state view. I need to export the list of all valid certificates that SCOM has discovered and is monitoring.

    Our OpsDB is growing fast.
    When I run the query ‘Large Table query’ and do a count on all results it’s only 3.5GB.
    But our OpsDB is 40GB wherefrom 55% filled with Data (that’s 22GB).
    This is after some cleanup scripts, etc.
    Is there a way to see or explain what’s taken all the space within the used Data?

    1. Kevin Holman says:

      Shoot me an email with the results of your large table query pasted in excel.

      1. M. Witbraad says:

        I just send you an email.
        Thanks for helping.

    Hello ,

    I am facing storm of events which rapidly filling DW , I am trying to find the servers generating this events but this query is not working for SCOM 2012 R2/SQL 2012 , please how to make the same query for SCOM 2012 ?

    Computers generating the most events: (This shows us which computers create the most event traffic and use the most database space)

    SELECT top 20 LoggingComputer as ComputerName, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents
    FROM EventallView with (NOLOCK)
    GROUP BY LoggingComputer
    ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

    Computers generating the most events, by event number: (This shows the noisiest computers, group by unique event numbers)

    SELECT top 20 LoggingComputer as ComputerName, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents, Number as EventID
    FROM EventallView with (NOLOCK)
    GROUP BY LoggingComputer, Number
    ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

    Computers generating the most events, grouped by identical event number and publishername:

    SELECT top 20 LoggingComputer as ComputerName, COUNT(*) AS TotalEvents, PublisherName as EventSource, Number as EventID
    FROM EventallView with (NOLOCK)
    GROUP BY LoggingComputer, PublisherName, Number
    ORDER BY TotalEvents DESC

    1. Kevin Holman says:

      Those queries work fine in SCOM 2012.

      They are made to target the OperationsManager DB – NOT the DW.

      Most event collection rules – will have dual write actions which means they write to both the DB and the DW – so looking at the DB is a good way to understand what is going haywire.

      I document this here:

      If you MUST have queries for the DW – you can just scroll down the page to the “Data Warehouse section” where I have the same or similar queries there for the DW.

    Hey Kevin,

    Any chance I can still access the SCOM 2007 SQL Queries? You’d be surprised how many folks are still on this platform.

    Thanks so much.

    1. Kevin Holman says:

      The new link queries still work on SCOM 2007 for almost all of them. Much of the schema did not change.

  94. Ali M. says:

    Hello Kevin, I am trying to make a dashboard which shows information about servers that are running and are down (heartbeat failure notification) for a day. I have found a script that gives the heartbeat as this, (the comment script is what I am trying to establish). I am a little new to computing.

    SELECT [Id]
    — ,a.NetworkName
    FROM [OperationsManager].[dbo].[AlertView] av
    –INNER JOIN [OperationsManager].[dbo].[MT_Computer] a ON a.BaseManagedEntityId=av.MonitoringObjectId
    Where Timeadded >= (Getdate()-1)
    And Name = ‘Microsoft.SystemCenter.HealthService.Heartbeat’

    I also want to display another chart on the dashboard that shows the health state for all the connected servers. But I can’t find a master table for all the running servers and their health state. Could you help with this query? And also comment on the one above?
