I was dealing with some console startup performance issues when I found this interesting post from a guy called Seb on the technet forum (here).
- When I launch SCOM console on a machine with internet access : instant launch.
- Without internet access : >1 minute.
The thing is it looks like the console needs to check some Authenticode signature of an assembly over the internet (I don’t remember having this issue prior CU4).
So if you don’t have internet access where your console is installed you can bypass the check by adding a Microsoft.MOM.UI.Console.exe.config file next to the console exe and add the following content:
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
This will simply disable Authenticode checking and then you’re console will start in a second even in isolated networks.
Try this at your own risk as it has no been approved by SCOM team yet.
