  • 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: A month in a new life

    Hey, I have just realized that I have been in my new PM role for a month already – time flies! If you are one of my OpsMgr readers, in case you haven’t noticed, I have been silent here but I have published a post on the momteam blog – check it out: http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2011/08/12...
  • 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: OpsMgr Agents and Gateways Failover Queries

    The following article by Jimmy Harper explains very well how to set up agents and gateways’ failover paths thru Powershell http://blogs.technet.com/b/jimmyharper/archive/2010/07/23/powershell-commands-to-configure-gateway-server-agent-failover.aspx .

  • Blog Post: Microsoft.Linux.RHEL.5.LogicalDisk.DiskBytesPerSecond Type Mismatch

    I have had the following in my notes for a while… and I have not blogged in a while (been too busy) so I decided to blog it today, before the topic gets too old and starts stinking   It all started when a customer showed me an Alert he was seeing in his environment from some XPlat workflow.

  • Blog Post: OpsMgr Event IDs Spreadsheet

    I work in support (mostly with System Center Operations Manager, as you know), and I work with event logs every day. The following are typical situations: I get a colleague or a customer telling me “I am having a problem and the SCOM agent is showing 21037 events and 20002 events.  What’s wrong...
  • Blog Post: How to convert (and fixup) the RedHat RPM to run on Debian/Ubuntu

    In an earlier post I had shown how I got the Xplat agent running on Ubuntu . I perfected the technique over time, and what follows is a step-by-step process on how to convert and change the RedHat package to run on Debian/Ubuntu. Of course this is still a hack… but some people asked me to detail...
  • Blog Post: Audit Collection Services Database Partitions Size Report

    A number of people I have talked to liked my previous post on ACS sizing . One thing that was not extremely easy or clear to them in that post was *how* exactly I did one thing I wrote: […] use the dtEvent_GUID table to get the number of events for that day, and use the stored procedure...
  • Blog Post: A few thoughts on sizing Audit Collection System

    People were already collecting logs with MOM, so why not the security log? Some people were doing that, but it did not scale enough; for this reason, a few years ago Eric Fitzgerald announced that he was working on Microsoft Audit Collection System . Anyhow, the tool as it was had no interface…...
