Disable Port Monitoring not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft has acknowledged the problem that the disable port monitoring feature most of the time does not work. The KB below addresses a excruciatingly manual process to disable port monitoring on an individual port.


    I have ZERO need to monitor the port status on any labeled PORT-XXX. These are user ports and their status is irrelevant.
    Our concern is with ports which have an interface name like IF-XXX. There are the ports that link our devices together.
    I need to disable port monitoring on over 800 ports across 8 network devices.

    Is this even possible?

    What other options are out there for using SCOM to monitor CISCO network devices?

  • Hi ,

    You can use that powershell script which wrote in that KB to disable port monitoring :

    $port = Get-SCOMMonitoringObject -DisplayName "SOME_DEVICE"
    $monitorsToOverride = Get-SCOMMonitor -Recurse -Instance $port
    $mp = Get-SCOMManagementPack -DisplayName "PORT_OVERRIDES_MP"
    $monitorsToOverride | ForEach-Object {Disable-SCOMMonitor -Monitor $_ -Instance $port -ManagementPack $mp}

    But , you need to get the computer port list .

    To get object name , try this :

    (Get-SCOMGroup "managed computer network adapters group").GetRelatedMonitoringObjects()
