Azure MP Full Scan Option RRS feed

  • Question

  • Thoguht I would put this out there in case anyone has found a solution but I am unable to retrieve the 'Full Scan' option from the Latest Azure MP . 

    The guide has the below information though it isn't clear where this needs to be created 

    I have add this key to all management servers but still don't get the 'full scan'  option 

    In order to enable Full scan option the following registry key must be created on host with SCOM server installed: 

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Azure Management Pack

    String “EnabledFullScan” value “true” 

    Full Scan option will become available in Wizard.

  • Check this for Full scan-


    Sadly you can only run the wizard once per subscription which means that you can’t slice and dice your Azure monitoring into more granular logical management packs.

    Lets’ run the wizard:

    Enter a Name and Management Pack to save the configuration into:

    Select the subscription and do a full Azure scan. Take note of the comments at the bottom of the window; a full scan can take 1 to 2 hours for 1000 Azure resources. After the initial full scan you can just do refreshes but I am concerned about enterprise scalability.

    You then get a list of all the discovered Azure resources and can select the items that you want to monitor. I’ve just selected my Microsoft.insights resources.

  • Hello,

    I can get this to work after adding registry key on MS and i am getting full scan option.


    Note: I have 1 MS in resource pool which I have selected during azure subscription. 

    You can also try with resource pool which has 1 MS and try to add registry key and check.

  • how frustrating can I presume you made the key change prior to adding the azure subscription ?

  • No I created the key after adding the azure subscription and the azure  monitoring wizard in authoring pane.

    After that, i created the registry key and then again i opened the azure monitoring wizard in authoring pane and then I can see the full scan option available.

  • I wonder if that's whats causing my behaviour then. i've added the regkey to the DB server but I still get no option for 'full scan' 

    how strange at least I know its just me...

  • bit of a delayed response but No I still haven't managed to get the full scan option to show. 

    I am hoping I have more look with the newer version of the MP I hear that is due to be released shortly

  • Hi Richard,

    the only option I can think of is to enable verbose logging and check the logs. Do you have the time to further troubleshoot this?
