How to Look Up the Management Group Name

How to Look Up the Management Group Name

Once you enter the management group name during set up you never see it again.  We really should be showing it on the title bar of the console, but until we get around to doing that here are a couple of ways you can look it up.

1) Use the ServiceManager or DWStagingAndConfig database and run the following query.  Keep in mind that the DW is a management group all by itself.

SELECT ManagementGroupName FROM __MOMManagementGroupInfo__

2) Look in the registry on a Service Manager or Data Warehouse management server.  Look for a key under this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Server Management Groups

Yes, it’s under the Operations Manager key.  Remember that this is a common platform underlying multiple System Center products.

  • Thanks man! For such a simple thing to display, I agree it should be in the title bar or somewhere in the console. Only ran into this problem when I was adding an additional Management Server.

  • Travis: Is it possible to change the Management Group Name after install? Im getting error messags when I attempt to un-register the DW and the logs are saying something about a part of the name in my Management group.
