When you create a group in SCOM it does not by default have a health rollup monitor, so the health state stays in the grey/uninitialized 'no health information' state. To show the health of the group members using the group object you will need to add a health rollup monitor.


1. In SCOM click on the 'Authoring' tab

2. Expand 'Management Pack Objects'.

3. Right click on 'Monitors', select 'Create a Monitor' and then 'Dependency Roll Up Monitor'.

4. Give the monitor a suitable name.

5. The Monitor Target should be your group.

6. Leave the 'Parent monitor' set to 'Availability'.

7. Select the same unsealed management pack that your group is in.

8. Click Next to move on to Monitor Dependency.

9. Expand Object (Contains Entities), expand Entity Health, and click on Availability.

10. Click Next, Next, Create.

After you have created a health rollup you may have to wait a minute or two and then your dashboards should show the health for your group.

Community Management Pack

Alternatively, in order to simplify this process, Tao Yang, MVP, has created a community Management Pack - "OpsMgr Group Health Rollup Configuration Task Management Pack” -  which provides an agent task to create dependency monitors for the selected groups using the OpsMgr SDK.

Full details of that are available here;
