This year I have a chance to present at System Center Universe APAC in Singapore – as far as I remember this is the first time I present in Asia More than 20 speakers that you might know from the community will present technical sessions around Cloud technologies, Azure, fabric management and much more.
In my last post I explained how servers can be connected directly with OpInsights. Another option is to use an on premise SCOM infrastructure. While you are already collecting information with SCOM, you can still forward information to OpInsights for further analysis. The only thing you need to do is create a SCOM-to-OpInsight connection and activate the Alert intelligence pack.
OpInsights is a Microsoft cloud-based service that gives you the ability to collect, combine, correlate and visualize data from your infrastructure without having to build anything on your own. You just need to connect your servers to OpInsight – either directly or by using your on premise SCOM infrastructure. In this article I will walk you through the basic concepts and how to setup direct communication that allows you to start collecting and analyzing information within minutes! If you need more details what this is all about you can find details on the official web site (still in preview now).
The annual community conference “System Center Universe 2014 Europe” was executed September 17-19 2014 in Basel-Switzerland. 370 people from 20 different countries made it to the conference to learn, present, discuss, meet and have fun. From the feedback we received so far (and also from our personal view), the conference was a great success. This blog post is a recap of the organization team with the most important things that happened as well as a collection of blogs, videos and pictures that others created (and that will be updated continuously over time). Have fun reading! And make sure you are part of this amazing conference next year!
You might be aware that Service Manager allows you to use Review Activities (RA) in a SR or CR to approve requests. RAs can be easily added to the process in the SCSM console. After adding the RA, you must add AD User CI that will be used to approve the request. If you take a look at the backend things are a little more complex, especially when you want to add approvers using a PowerShell script.
