SCOM 2012 R2 - Create Management Console

Hi Everyone,

When starting the SCOM Management console and I click on 'Monitoring' I can see all the default folders down the left side of the screen.

I have created a Group with the Server Team in the group.  I have created them a folder and associated a management pack to their folder.  Every time I try to edit the management console to only let the server team see 'Alerts' \ 'Windows Computers' and the folder I created the console still displays all the folders....

What am I missing ?

Appreciate any help.

Just to make certain we are on the same page... (this might be what you are looking for...)

In Administration -> Security -> User Roles, have you created a User Role for the Server Team, and assigned to them the scope you want the that group to have?

Hi Rich,

Please, see attached. I have selected the folders and SCOMError1 has the actual view.

Second screen shot -- the one which shows the Dashboards and Views....
What do you have defined for "Group Scope"?

The groups scope I pnly chose the Alerts \ Windows and the Server Folder, but I only see the state view. Sorry I'm new to al;l this and still can't understand why such a simple task is so difficult.  I  created the group added myself to it and changed the views

I think  "Alerts\Windows" and "Server folder" still refers to items in the "Dashboards and Views" tab.  I think you need to switch over to the "Group Scope" tab to grant access to content.

Or wait... unless you actually went to the effort of creating group objects in "Authoring" -> "Groups"... and putting objects you want the group to manage in there... in which case I'll advise that groups in SCOM don't work in the standard way you'd expect.  If that's the case , consider granting a few other groups which make sense for the user, and test again.
