Free PowerShell Monitoring Management Pack


Goodbye VBScript, hello PowerShell...

One of the main frustrations with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) is that the console only supports VBScript. Everyone knows that PowerShell is the modern way and everyone knows it’s the language today's IT Pros are familiar with.

So we decided to do something about it.


Why you need this MP

As part of our continuing commitment to the SCOM community we’re excited to share a new PowerShell Monitoring Management Pack with the community. It's completely free, open-source and we're confident it's going to change the way you and your team engage with SCOM. To get your hands on a copy, simply complete the form above and we'll send full details your way.

To us, SCOM is and always will be a platform. Thanks to its Management Pack architecture, extensibility has always been at the heart of its power and potential, an architecture which opens up endless opportunities, not only in terms of what you can monitor, but also how you can monitor with SCOM.

One of the main frustrations with SCOM is the fact the console only supports VBScript - hardly cutting-edge technology, right? Everyone knows that PowerShell is the modern way and everyone knows it’s the language modern IT Pros are familiar with. And as SCOM doesn't support it natively, we decided to do something about it!

The MP adds support for PowerShell everywhere that you’d expect to see it in the SCOM console’s authoring pane.

  • Bringing SCOM up to date with the latest best practice and technologies
  • Supports custom PS monitors, remediation tasks and data collection
  • No more VBScript. Bye bye 1998, hello 2017!
  • Completely free and open source

Release webinar replay

To mark the public availability of this free Management Pack, we held an introductory webinar containing all the information you need to get up and running with the PowerShell Monitoring MP.

The webinar covers important tips on best practice when using the MP, dos and don'ts, as well as providing examples of useful scripts and use cases. We'd highly encourage you to check it out in tandem with downloading and installing the MP into your SCOM environment.

As a free Community Management Pack, support is provided via the wider community so, if you haven't done so already, now's a great time to join Community Answers, a community-powered platform providing detailed answers to questions about SCOM and related technologies.


You can download the slides from the webinar here.

Once you've downloaded the PowerShell Monitoring Management Pack, why not grab a free 30-day trial of Squared Up to show off your custom monitoring in all its glory via blazingly-fast HTML5 dashboards.
