I'm a new (US based) SCOM admin and have been asked to add a few of our SQL servers located in the UK to our monitoring. The question coming from the UK admins is "Is there a possibility that a SCOM component (agent) will look at any sovereign data?"

I'm pretty sure that the answer is 'no', but would like to hear from an experienced SCOM admin as to the data that SCOM would look at in an MS SQL environment.

The short answer is "no," the SQL management pack for SCOM will not look at any sovereign data.

For the most part, the SQL management pack will only look at WMI information.
