SCOM 2019 monitoring a WIndows service from an non domain server

Markus Schwarzer 21 Reputation points

I have a simple question but I don't get it. How can I monitor a Windows Service from a DMZ server?
Another department has created a service on the server and wants to be informed when it stops running.
I have found the wizard for service monitoring but this is only for domain joined server. Is there someone who could explain or tell me what wizard I need?
Thanks a lot!

    You absolutely do not need to use the browse button from the wizard. Simply write in the name of the service and it will work.

    For workgroup computers, we may need to configure certificates for the mutual authentication. For more detailed information, you may refer to this post.

    Hi, thanks for your respond.
    All our DMZ servers have a cert installed and are properly monitored. Now I have to monitor a service created by the department, which does not belong to the Windows standard services. In the Service Monitor Wizard, I can only use servers that can be found in the active directory. So I can choose the right service. But the DMZ servers are not in the AD and so I can't create the service monitoring with the standard Service Monitor Wizard.
    Is there another wizard?
    Have a good day!
