In SCOM notifications, the last line reads

Notification subscription ID generating this message: {DFF2B469-4D4D-3F82-C51B-FCAC7A863DE6}

I want to convert the GUID to the Subscription Name. I've searched and found references to using

Get-NotificationSubscription -id DFF2B469-4D4D-3F82-C51B-FCAC7A863DE6 | ft Display

But I'm just getting either the error

'Get-NotificationSubscription' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

from the command prompt, or

Get-NotificationSubscription : The term 'Get-NotificationSubscription' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

from PowerShell.

Haven't figured out what I might be doing wrong yet.

There were two problems:

  1. The command apparently changed from SCOM2007 to SCOM2012, and is now Get-SCOMNotificationSubscription, and Display has changed to DisplayName

  2. The command can not be run from the command prompt or PowerShell. SCOM has its own "Operations Manager Shell" that must be used to access the command. To get to the shell:

    • Go to All Programs -> Microsoft System Center 2012 -> Operation Manager
    • Click on Operations Manager Shell.
    • Then you can run the command

      Get-SCOMNotificationSubscription -id <GUID> | ft DisplayName
