Rename SCOM 2019 Operations Manager Web Console? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning, I need to rename the operations manager web console url.

    It is currently: https://servername.blah.blah.blah/OperationsManager

    I need it to be something like: https://scomdr.blah.blah.blah/OperationsManager

    Is it just as simple as changing the name under Administration/Settings/Web Address/Web Console name  ???

    Thanks for your time and assistance!!

  • Agreed with Leon, this is not officially supported... but it will still most likely work, since the Windows Server 2016+ MP can be imported in scom 2012R2.

    I'm not 100% sure the SCOM 2012 R2 agent will install in Windows 2019, but you can always manually install the SCOM 2016 or even 2019 agent, it can communicate with SCOM 2012R2.

  • Hi,

    It's not desired to change the name of the Site itself, you could however create a CNAME record in the DNS that will forward for example:

    http://opsmgr.contoso.com/OperationsManager to http://<servername>.lab.ad:port/OperationsManager

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Afternoon and thank you Leon!

    So if I create a cname of Https://scomdr.x.x..x:443/OperationsManager, that will forward to the real scom web manager name?

    Another question, please. Can I monitor windows server 2019 with scom 2012r2? I am in the process of standing up a 2019 scom environment but it is taking a while...

    Thanks for your time and assistance!

  • The DNS CNAME maps one domain name (an alias) to another name, so yes it should work.

    SCOM 2012 R2 does not officially support Windows Server 2019.
