Monitor SSL Certificates in SCOM2012

Recently I’ve been looking around for a good solution to monitor the expiration and verification of SSL certificates. Tried to script using powershell, that’s also possible but a SCOM2012 MP is a far more better solution to keep track of all you certificates.

How to use?

  • Download and unpack the .ZIP file
  • Read Certificate MP Guide
  • Import
  • Import (as unsigned/unsealed MP) SystemCenterCentral.Utilities.Certificates.QuickStartOverrides.xml
  • Config the overrides of your needings
  • Check if the SSL certificates (in the personal store or elswhere) are visible:
