Monitoring Domain Controllers in SCOM 2016 – Script Automation

Not too long ago, I wrote about how SCOM 2016 has some workarounds for monitoring domain controllers, find that post here. We learned the HSLockdown tool needs to be configured to allow the Local System account to be run under.

I was in an environment were 100+ domain controllers needed this done.. No way was I going to do this manually 100+ times… So, I wrote the following script. Unfortunately, do some PowerShell switch limitations, I had to resort to using a batch command line script.

How it works. Save the list of servers affected to a text file. Using this file/script, and PSExec, we can execute the script against the servers affected. To get that script, please visit the Microsoft TechNet Gallery.

Cheers!
