  • You want to monitor free space on a file share in which the server hosting the file share has no SCOM agent?  Not sure if this is possible, since no discovery would run against the server to determine the total size of the disks it has.  However, there might be a scripted/custom solution that you could use, but you would have to run that from a management server or server with a SCOM agent on it...

    Best thing to do would be get a SCOM agent on that box and then monitor disk space with the windows MP.
