In most cases the recommended limit to the number of console connections you should have are 50 simultaneous connections. If you have a large number of agents reporting into one management group the recommended limit declines to 25 simultaneous connections. Discovering whom is connected is the problem we are addressing with this tool today. (see link at bottom of post to get tool)
I ran this in a test environment and it does not have to run on a RMS or MS to work. It must meet the below requirements in order to run successfully:
- .NET 3.5 Framework
- SCOM R2 Console (User Interface installed)
- Run as account that has administrative rights to the SCOM Management Group
Extract the files to some directory of your choice.
Open Administrative command prompt and enter the name of the .exe followed by the name of your RMS server
The program lists out all the users that currently have a SCOM console connection. Users will be displayed once for every connection they have open.
