They were all created in opinsights because the fact I added 3 different management groups in their respective SCOM console. No sweat of course. I now build 1 management group in my lab environment where I configured everything so I wanted to get rid of the other workspaces. Turns out there are 2 ways you can delete a workspace and in fact this was not clear in the beginning. How to get to the “close workspace” option The remove option is well hidden in the menu’s to probably avoid deletion by accident which is actually a good thing but it’s a little bit too...

This blog post is part of the Microsoft Operations management Suite Quick start guide which can be found here: http://scug.be/dieter/2015/05/08/microsoft-operations-management-suite-quickstart-guide/   A wokspace is basically the same as your management group in SCOM.
