Marius Sutara just released a tool that resets the state of a monitor that is closed. This is huge help for my environment. We have rolled out SCOM to many application teams and it is often difficult for them to understand which monitors they can close (rule based) and which will close automatically (state based monitors).

Before this tool if the application owner thought a problem was fixed they would close the alert. If the problem wasn’t really fixed the monitor would stay in error and would never re-fire. If they looked in the alerts view, the alert was closed so they would never think there was still an issue.

With Marius’s tool now if anyone closes an alert from a state based monitor is still in error, the state will be reset and the alert will re-fire.Nice work Marius
