How to Find the SCSM Management Group Name
Quite often vendors will ask you what is the Management Group name, heck, even we do. And the last time you saw it was at install, or someone else did it and you don't know what it is.
There are a number of ways to see the Management Group name:
Option 1: Use the Console (from any computer)
Use the Connect.. Option under the Tools Menu.
You don't actually need to connect but it will show the Management Group name when you select or type in one of the SCSM Management Servers
Option 2: Look in the Registry
The registry also contains the information. Open the following path on a SCSM Management Server:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Server Management
On the Data Warehouse server the key will show the Data Warehouse Management Group name
Option 3: Use Powershell
From the native PowerShell module on a SCSM Management Server you can run:
Get-SCManagementGroupConnection | FL *
Option 4: Query SQL
Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the Service Manager database Create a new query:
SELECT ManagementGroupName FROM __MOMManagementGroupInfo__
And when executed it will return the Management Group Name.
