Enable or Disable all subscriptions in SCOM 2007 R2

/ December 10th, 2010/ Posted in Operations Manager 2007 / 1 Comment »


I needed to disable all the alerts on the SCOM server which required me to disable all subscriptions.


From the Operations Manager 2007 R2 Powershell I was able to run the following command

Get-NotificationSubscription | Disable-NotificationSubscription

After I was complete I ran

Get-NotificationSubscription | Enable-NotificationSubscription

which turned all alerts backs on. BE WARNED, it will send all alerts that are in the queue.

There is a tool which will allow you to stop and start all notifications without sending alerts that are queued. It is located at
