SCOM - Create Tasks

Hi Folks,

I've not used SCOM before, however I've been told that it's possible to create tasks in Operations Manager, just like you would with Task Scheduler - Is that right?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure I would say it is "just like...", however it is perfectly possible,

SCOM has Tasks, that are configured to be launched from the console by an operator or executed as a response to a monitor. I don't think these what you're asking for!

What you're asking for are the timed script/command monitors or rules in the authoring pane.

There are some pretty good guides available from the community, to get you started.

Hope this helps.
