  • Blog Post: Microsoft Monitoring Agent, System Center Operations Manager and Visual Studio Application Insights

    Since the release of System Center 2012 R2 Preview (and more after GA was announced) a lot of people asked me why did we rename the Operations Manager agent to "Microsoft Monitoring Agent"? Some information that went out together with the GA of SC2012R2 can be found at the following link: http://technet...

  • Blog Post: Repost: Useful SetSPN tips

    I just saw that my former colleague (PFE) Tristan has posted an interesting note about the use of SetSPN “–A” vs SetSPN “–S”. I normally don’t repost other people’s content, but I thought this would be useful as there are a few SPN used in OpsMgr and it is not always easy to get them all right… and you...
  • Blog Post: I have been chosen; Farewell my friends...

    I have been in Premier Field Engineering for nearly 7 years (it was not even called PFE when I joined - it was just "another type of support"...) and I have to admit that it has been a fun, fun ride: I worked with awesome people and managed to make a difference with our products and services...

  • Blog Post: Installing the OpsMgr 2007 R2 SCX Agent on Ubuntu

    You know since the beta1 of Xplat I have been busy with modifying the Redhat management pack and monitor CentOS with OpsMgr . Now, CentOS is a distribution that is pretty similar to RedHat, so the RPM package just runs, and it is only a matter of hacking a modified MP . I never went really further...
