In order to properly report on the uptime of a machine, you will need to target the Health Service Watcher object class. This class will allow you to return the availability of the machine itself, and not all of the rollup monitors underneath that may affect the report accuracy.

  1. Open SCOM Console, Click on the Reporting tab
  2. Click on Microsoft Generic Report Library
  3. Open the Availability Report
  4. Add Object:
    Add object to report
  5. Click on Options… -> Click on Add -> Type Health Service Watcher in the search field -> Add Health Service Watcher:
    Add Health Service Watcher Object Class
  6. Click OK on the Options Window:
    Options - Health Service Watcher
  7. Type in the machines you want to discover (or you can just press search and it will return all related items):
    Select Health Service Watcher Computer Objects
  8. Modify the time range and run the report.
  9. Resulting output:
