Monitor non-domain server with SCOM 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to monitor non-domain (workgroup) servers. What is best practice for this? Can only find info for 2012 and older versions, and don't understand if you must do it the same way (gateway server or certificate) or if there is an easier way now?

  • Hi Cristina,

    No changes here. Autnetication should be done using certificates.
    If you use a gateway depends on the amount of computers you need to monitor and if they are in the same network segment.

    Hope this answers the questions.

  • Hello,

    You may use the same way to monitor non-domain servers in SCOM 2016. 

    To monitoring of a remote, untrusted workgroup, Certificate authentication will be required between the management server and agent-managed workgroup servers, which will authenticate and communicate directly to the management server.
