GrayAndYellowGearsHave you ever checked the option "Don't prompt when running this task in the future" by mistake when running a task in SCOM 2007 and you want to clear that check to get the task prompting again? If so, this will walk you through the steps to do that

Let's take the Task "Enable Audit Collection" as an example which you run against the health service of the agent.

When you place a check next to "Don't prompt when running this task in the future", this settings is stored under this following registry path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Console\

Under this you will find lots user settings including views/tasks with their GUIDs. In order to figure out which GUID represents the task we are looking for, we can use the following query to get the ID of the Task.  In this case it is "Enable Audit Collection":

Select TaskId, TaskName from Task where TaskName like '%Enable%Audit%'

Output: 9B764826-52E8-A994-544C-02D0891E1DFB Microsoft.SystemCenter.EnableAuditCollectionService

Search in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Console\ for the ID 9B764826-52E8-A994-544C-02D0891E1DFB which represents the "Enable Audit Collection" task.

Change the value of the key Prompt from 0 to 1.

The change will take effect immediately so there is no need to close the Operations Manager console. Try to click the task again, it should prompt you again.

Note: There is a workaround to this. If you right click the task in the OpsMgr Console, it will prompt you even if you have checked the "Don't prompt when running this task in the future" option in the task.
