The “Core Windows Services Rollup” Monitor for Windows Server 2008 Includes Computer Browser Services False/Positive

The “Core Windows Services Rollup” Monitor for Windows Server 2008 Includes Computer Browser Services which creates a False/Positive

Issue: The Core Windows Services Rollup monitoring that exists in all server operating system management packs aggregates the state of a number of monitors that are watching the state of various “core services” and will change state if any one of those services is not running. The Windows Server 2008 version of this monitor includes a monitor for the “Computer Browser Service Health,” which is not accurate because the service is no longer required for the Windows Server 2008 operating system to function properly.

Workaround: The monitor can be safely ignored, but it can also be disabled by overriding it.
