    Hi,

    I’m working in a SCOM system were we are keeping Admins to a minimum. This causes a some additional work when it comes to overrides management.

    We have a lot of servers with IIS and many server admins are reluctant in removing stopped sites. Don’t ask me why, I personally don’t see the problem.

    Anyway, I would like to be able to just add the server and the IIS site name to a list and then have SCOM discover those sites and add them to a group at which an override is targeted.

    I have found similar setups with this for “only” computers, but I can’t really figure out how to do this for class instances hosted on a server.

    Any suggestions?

    I would suggest checking out this blog on how to create a group that will ignore  “default application pools” and a group for “default web applications”.

    This should help you start the journey. If you have more specific questions please feel free to ask them here.
