Service Map - Setting up SCOM management group


It's time to get my SCOM MG running Service Map

Nothing like seeing what an application actually does, mapping ports a server is using, and who the server talks to!

From the docs site -


Download Management Pack

Let's start with the pack download

  • In the Server Selection window, you configure the Service Map Servers Group with the servers that you want to sync between Operations Manager and Service Map. Click Add/Remove Servers.

For the integration to build a distributed application diagram for a server, the server must be:

  • Managed by Operations Manager
  • Managed by Service Map
  • Listed in the Service Map Servers Group
