  1. is that possible to do automation depends on conditions ?

    There is a server group (for example 3 Domain Controller in that group) i want that each machine should be updated by OMS (via update management module) in order ? (i want to be sure 1. DC became Up then 2. DC can start to install updates )

    Thank you.


    1. Hi Emre, Not that I am aware of.. However, with some PowerShell, and hybrid runbook worker, you could very easily build that logic into a runbook. of course the easiest solution may be, to just create 3 groups within OMS, and run the update management solution against the group after sequential times.


  2. Hi Ravi
    we have a problem with SCOM and Management pack for Azure. If I add a subscription that has a Data Factory, they fails when I run “Add monitoring wizard” process. The error code is:
    “One or more errors occurred. Object reference not set to an instance of an object”.
    Is a big bug because in the documentation, Microsoft says that this type of resource can be monitored.
    Have you any idea that help us?
    Thanks a lot.


    1. Hi Toni, I have not been in this scenario enough to comment. I would reach out to the TechNet forums to see if anyone has a similar experience. At worst, you could reach out to Microsoft.
