Upgrade SCOM 2012 R2 From Eval To Full Edition LicenseReading Time: < 1 minute
By default, when SCOM 2012 R2 is installed, it uses an eval license (hence the yellow warning when you install the management server). When you go to the “Administration” workspace there is a center page link to technet to “Upgrade SCOM to full version”.
Here’s the simple way to add that product key from powershell.
set-SCOMLicense -ProductId “insert product key here”
stop-service cshost; stop-service omsdk; stop-service healthservice
start-service cshost; start-service omsdk; start-service healthservice
Alternatively, you can reboot the management server.
After that, to verify the key is install you can take the following steps.
Launch the Operations Manager Console > Go to “Help” and click “About” > Next to the Version information it should now say Retail. *Note that it’s okay if the Product ID is blank.
I hope this makes your day at least a little bit easier.
Powershell command to show names of all machines in SCOMReading Time: < 1 minute
Simple one-liner, very helpful though!
Import-Module OperationsManager; Get-SCOMGroup -DisplayName “All Windows Computers” | Get-SCOMClassInstance | sort DisplayName | FT DisplayName
This will output just the names of all machines in the “All Windows Computers” group, you can change that name to output the machine names of any other group as well.
No email option in SCOM 2012 report subscriptionReading Time: 2 minutes
So this is the issue — you’re going to subscribe to a report in SCOM and the only options are “Windows File Share” and “Null Delivery Provider”.
Well that’s a problem…we want these reports emailed. This error typically occurs when a SQL Migration is done, the reporting role is migrated, or on new installs. So go open up SQL Server Reporting Services Configuration Manager, and go to the “email settings” tab on the side. Notice there’s no data in there.
Configure this to include whatever you want your sender address to be, and your SMTP server, then click apply and you should get this.
Now, let go back and open up the SCOM Report Subscription again, and there we go!
I hope I’ve made your day, at least a little bit easier.
