Here’s a new Knowledge Base article we published today. This one discusses an issue where the status icon in a title column of State View shows health from the First Item in System Center 2012 Operations Manager



In System Center Operations Manager, the overall health column in any state view should reflect the worst state of all devices/servers in that view, however in System Center 2012 Operations Manager (OpsMgr 2012) it only reflects the state of the server/device in the first row. If you change the sorting order, the overall status column also changes.

Example :

Consider we have two servers in a state view. The first row has healthy state and second row has critical state. In this scenario, the overall health should show the Critical state (worst state). In OpsMgr 2012, we are only considering the first row's state and reflecting it as the overall state.


This is a known issue in System Center 2012 Operations Manager and is scheduled to be addressed in Service Pack 1.
