set integration pack monitor for servers group
Should be a great idea set what kind of IP I want use for a specific group of servers. For example if I've 5 lab servers and for these machines I don't want Change Tracking + Security Monitor, I want create a group on SCOM and disable these objects easier.
You can totally do that with Overrides and groups in SCOM today – all of the collection policy is driven by management packs – the ‘Advisor Managed’ list in the console is just a handy default, and it is really just a group used in overrides!
Just export and look at the MPs – each IP is driven by a couple of discoveries (or in many cases not even present/needed) and a bunch of Rules you can override at will -often they just target windows computer and are enabled for the ‘Advisor Managed’ group.
We might provide more advanced targeting criteria from the portal in the farther future to support direct agents, but for the time being this granularity is something you can currently only control and take advantage of thru System Center Operations Manager.
Since the request was about SCOM, I am considering it completed – but if people disagree we can reopen.

All you need to do is to set overrides - we typically target something very broadly like 'windows computer', but the rules are disabled by default. Then we re-enable with an override on the 'Advisor Managed' group. You can set your own override to disable again (eventually with the 'enforced' flag) and then re-enable on specific agents or your own groups...
Of course this is not an option for Direct Agent, but System Center customers are first class and can take advantage of these advanced targeting capabilities that OpsMgr provides!
