    More Good Cross Platform MP Articles

    Kristopher Bash has written some more good articles on using cross platform agents for Operations Manager. Here’s a quick run-down of his recent articles: Operations Manager Cross-Platform Authoring:  Invoke Action Monitor When monitoring UNIX/Linux servers, command execution or script-based monitors can provide a great deal of flexibility in many health-checking applications.   The Operations Manager 2007 R2 cross-platform agent facilitates the execution of shell command lines or...

    Opalis at MMS 2010 – use #opalis !

    • 0 Comments
    With MMS happening next week, I wanted to get the word out to everyone attending to be sure and attend the Opalis sessions and labs you can get into. Opalis is a really awesome product and will become a big part of the System Center suite. You should get ahead of the curve now and learn as much as you can. Not only is Opalis easy to use, it’s already included in your SMSE/D licenses if you’re current on Software Assurance! That means you can download it and install it today! While you’re at MMS attending...

    Triggering Opalis Workflows Using Complex Schedules (part 2)

    • 0 Comments
    After writing my last article, no more than five minutes later did two people correct me on having two start points and linking the Check Schedule object and the Run Program object (which is fixed in the post). It was then that I discovered an alternative way to set up this policy that actually removed the Check Schedule object completely! I love Opalis – it’s so flexible! Now for workflow readability, I actually prefer using the Check Schedule object in the workflow because I like to see all the...

    Triggering Opalis Workflows Using Complex Schedules

    • 0 Comments
    I answered my first Opalis question in the forums today. And sure enough, it’s something that would make a good article. The reason is because in describing Opalis workflows, sometimes it’s helpful to see an actual picture of the workflow and how it’s created. You just can’t insert pictures (easily) in the forum posts. So, I thought I’d use this article to provide more detail. Here’s the scenario: You have a script that needs to run on your computer(s) at 10 minutes and 40 minutes past the hour,...

    Get Ready for the Opalis Onslaught

    • 0 Comments
    Ok, so “onslaught” sounds like a harsh term. Perhaps “juggernaut”? Ok, how about the benign term “The Opalis Era’? As we gear up for MMS next week I await with much anticipation (anxiety?) the wave of new interest in the Opalis product. It’s such an easy to use automation tool that will begin to be tied to virtually everything System Center and otherwise. As we go forward, I can really see the idea of the framework come to play here with Opalis playing the role of automation and orchestration of...

    It’s a Week of Craziness… Before the Week of Craziness

    • 0 Comments
    Those that are familiar with the teams inside System Center know that the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) is “our” event of the year. It’s the one event where we pull out all the stops, have tons of sessions, and we focus on System Center and related Microsoft Management products. Rightly so, the weeks leading up to MMS are full of preparations for the event – last minute session changes, trial runs through presentations, getting all your *normal* work done as much as possible before you’re out...
