Allow for more control over alert flow back into SCOM
It would be nice to have more options in regards to:
1: Which alert levels should flow back into SCOM
2: The severity and priority of created alerts in SCOM
Currently the only options is to either get bombed with alerts when enabling advisor on agents or override your way out of it by basically killing the alert flow completely back into SCOM due to the noise it makes.
The advices are nice to have, but we dont want them to clutter up the system that should be easy to spot real live errors in.
Today, the alerts for Configuration assessment are generated in the cloud, and those rules (hence the severity) is decided by the content owner – each supported ‘workload’ has a team of experts within Microsoft CSS who create and maintain those rules. Alerts are just pulled down to OpsMgr afterwards, by a single rule, which maintains the original severity. Changing the architecture of the Sync mechanism would be a quite large piece of work and not something we plan to do.
Anyhow, we documented the detail steps on “how to stop the receiving of Advisor Alerts in Operations Manager”: http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2014/07/24/how-to-stop-the-receiving-of-advisor-alerts-in-operations-manager.aspx
