The Web Management service is stopped. This will prevent remote administration of the web server.

Came across this alert recently

SCOM Alert:-The Web Management service is stopped. This will prevent remote administration of the web server.

Upon seeing this I first tried to run the task to start the service, as suggested in the resolutions section of the alert detail

Resolutions

If the Web Management service (WMSvc) is not running you can diagnose the issue or restart the service by taking the following actions:

Check for additional service-related alerts that might have occurred concurrently. These alerts might help better identify the reason why the service entered a stopped state.
Review the event logs on the managed computer, and correct any underlying problems that might have caused the service to stop unexpectedly.
Use the following Task to attempt to restart the service.

Start Web Management (WMSvc) Service

The task ran successfully but the alert did not close.

Further investigation revealed that the service didn’t even exist on the server that the alert was generating for! It looks like if IIS is installed the IIS management pack automatically assumes that the Web Management Service is installed.

Fix

Create an override to disable the monitor and store the override in your custom IIS management pack.
