SCOM 2012 OnCommand Management Pack - Moving OpsManager DB




We are running SCOM 2012 R2.  I am migrating the OperationsManager database to another server.  I will be backing up and restoring the OperationsManager and OCPMDB database to the new server.  Other than the necessary changes for the OperationsManager DB (article below), is there anything special I need to do for the OCPMDB?


Migrating SCOM OperationsManager DB (


A quick/seperate question.  Has anybody used a SQL alias on the management servers that is not in DNS with success?

Thank you







i don't have the answer, but i want ot ask a question:

do you acteully see the DB in the CheckSettings command?

The MP fully working for me, i even upgraded it a month ago - but i can't find the DB! (i found one instance that is offline for a year)

My SQL Server instance and port is also not you have any solutions on this?









i was digging around that for a good day. (including packet traces and search in our DBs).. The only place I see the credential interface going to is operation manager DB. (it also has a table for credential there) I guess it’s some sort of miss documentation of their using this DB for it.

Ok thanks Gidi,


so in this case it has no impact on functionallity of the MP?


I can't get this thing to run, all my volumes etc just aren't monitored...

Do you have anything what can help me out of this mess?


thanks in advance!






don't think in specific. maybe worth opening another thread with full details just in case it's not related to the DB. as mine is "working" (well it's NetApp -  nothing really fully working).


Not sure what you means for not monitoring. Is it discovered but not changing status?

The way their SCOM monitors works is by monitoring alerts created in Windows event log called “oncommand”. You can see if the relevant alert is created there.

Hello Gidi,


Yes all volumes have been discovered, but the view of this MP is not working so I created a second view (so I can see them).

Problem is: all of them show up healthy, but most of them are 95% full and have not enough free space remaining....


Also no events on this in oncommand event viewer.


greeting Matt


Yes, I do see the database instance and port
