What ID’s is SCOM using


Ever need to audit what ID's SCOM is using?

Maybe you have to figure out how someone else setup SCOM.

Did they set up SCOM as recommended for best practices with different AD accounts per role?

 

If the ID's are not logged during install, it's a little more difficult to figure out what ID was used.

  • Domain Account for ALL services,
  • Enter in the unique DOMAIN\OMAA, DOMAIN\OMDAS, DOMAIN\OMREAD, DOMAIN\OMWRITE

 

Try these PowerShell commands to find what SCOM is using.

 

ON MS (from PowerShell (don’t need admin unless you’re restarting services)

$Services = ( Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Service )

$Services | ? { $_.Name -eq "OMSDK" -OR $_.Name -eq "cshost" -OR $_.Name -eq "HealthService" } |

ft name,Startname,StartMode

 

 

 

ON SCOM DB’s, Reporting (from PowerShell (don’t need admin unless you’re restarting services)

$Services = ( Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Service )

$Services | ? { $_.DisplayName -like "*SQL*" } | ft name,Startname,StartMode
