:book: Introduction

This tool will allow you to check your SCOM Certificate. It is very efficient and has been improved upon over time. You may edit line 751 to allow you to change what happens when you run from Powershell ISE. Copying and pasting the script to Powershell ISE after you run MOMCertImport on a certificate is the most common way to run the script, which requires no arguments or modifications. Just run the script and you will see where the issue may be.
