Exclude Logical disk on a Particular Drive on All Servers

I wanted to provide my client with a way to exclude a particular drive from their servers from scanning the logical disk monitor. This drive is set for the paging file only and is a very small partition size. This was generating lots of alerts in SCOM due to the number of servers being monitored. The process below is what I came up with to disable this alert for all drives labeled “D:” while still continuing to monitor free space on all other drives.

First I created a group named Windows 2008 Logical Disk Drive D:


This group does not need explicit members. Configure the dynamic members as follows:

There are no Exclusions or subgroups needed. Finish the wizard.

Now go into monitoring and create an override for the group and this monitor:

That’s it. You now have an override for this drive on all servers. All other drives will continue to report free space issues.
