SCOM 2012 - Firewall state PowerShell monitor script

Hmm, long time no post…

This script requires the excellent Wizard to Create Powershell-based Monitors Management Pack (or a similar Management Pack to run PowerShell scripts from SCOM).

It generates a property bag of whether you have each of the three Windows Firewall profiles enabled/disabled and (depending on how you’ve configured the monitor), alerts on them.


It’s a very useful little script to ferret out those little servers with the firewall turned off!
