Trouleshooting SCOM MP Discovery Scripts

If you suspect your discoveries are failing first thing to look at is Operations Manger Event log on the RMS,  MS, GW Servers. Look out for event ID’s 33333 & 10801.

You often get 33333 events if Agent Proxying needs enabling.

Event ID 10801 is more informative as it will give you the Discovery ID so all you have to do is open command shell and type ‘get-discovery -id f3124f32-cba5-5974-77fd-004e5c2f05ce f3124f32-cba5-5974-77fd-004e5c2f05ce’ for example. You can also put additional string | ft DisplayName

For Event 33333 you will need to get the Monitor ID from the Event description

Using the below as an example

For EventOrigin run – get-monitoringobject -id ae2c0896-7e5a-4188-a567-b48d9faee588 in commandshell

For Monitor ID run – get-monitor -id b59f78ce-c42a-8995-f099-e705dbb34fd4 in commandshell
