SCOM 2007: Create custom Alert Resolution States

Sometimes it’s useful to make your own Custom Alert Resolution States to further classify your alerts in the console and use these states to trigger different actions using various scripts.

I’ll be posting some scripts which are going to use this custom alert resolution state so therefore I’m documenting here how to configure them.

Open your SCOM console, select the administration tab, settings and alerts.


Click new…


Type in the Resolution State display name and choose a uniqueID. Click OK.


And we are done.

Not much to it but it makes live a little easier when you want to classify different alerts.

In the next series of blogs I’ll be frequently using this Custom Alert Resolution States to classify and report on different types of alerts.

Enough talk, let’s build
Something together.
