The ‘MECM/SCCM Addendum pack’ started from administrators and field engineers’ inputs on actionable/manual intervention required alerts. While Endpoint Management has taken on a number of names over the past few years, monitoring the platform functionality has stayed pretty much the same. The underlying application infrastructure is based on registry key discovery of installed roles.

Tailor the addendum for environment
Add monitoring for MECM servers per health model through daily team report, alert cleanup, custom groups to address subscription objects, servers, custom disk and client cache cleanup workflows, and lastly service restart automation.
The classes and DataSource/WriteAction alert reports require updates to target server naming convention(s). The alert report is most effective this way, only giving the administrator/AppOwner alerts relevant to owned/supported servers. Why – make the changes most effective, i.e. alert when manual intervention required.

Update Discovery to find/replace hashtags
Leveraging Kevin Holman’s MP fragment find/replace common variables notated by the ##variable##, we begin by updating the ##MECMServerNamingConvention## with a regular expression of the servers involved with Configuration Management.
Second, we update the disk specific alerts if drives fill, where different amounts of space is required to alert before application/server crashes, different than the OS Logical Disk full composite alerts for % and MB free alerts. These disk specific updates allowing administrator to get unique alerts for common disk full scenarios.
Third, update MECM Group discoveries for various regular expressions.
Lastly, review MECM Rules, Tasks, Monitor and Overrides for pack functionality.
After updating relevant pieces, save file, move to SCOM MS, and Import.
My customers have loved this, hopefully this experience is shared!
