You did the right thing. Bottom of the line, you are accountable to yourself, possibly your closest family (wife, children), and no one else. Except for God, if you believe in Him. But anybody else who is being judgmental about you, your life, your choices, they do not speak of you: they speak of themselves. Let them speak, you have more pleasant / useful things to do. Next time we wander north and risk hitting the Netherlands I'll let you know, so we can have a beer together. All the best to you and your family.

Your reverse engineering is too good. Thanks for the informative post. I should check how many of my management packs are lagging updates.

Kelly, I am not sure, I would have to see/test your script myself to try to understand what is happening there....

Trying to use your function but have run into a very strange behavior... I'm pulling server names from a DB then query them for OS and compare that to what the DB has already. Problem is... the results returned come back with the exact same OS from wmi for all servers. Change back to using get-wmiobject and problem disappears... Any ideas?

Comment on Cross Platform in OpsMgr 2007 R2 Release Candidate by Daniele Muscetta

Mon, 23 May 2011 08:25:11 +0000

I have no experience with it and I am not sure how the HP provides you are using would interact with our agent. But before moving on to the windows side and trying thru WSMan from there, have you checked that the provider has indeed registered within our openpegasus installation? Have you tried from within "/opt/microsoft/scx/bin/tools/" to call something like "./scxcimcli nc -n root/hpq -di" ?



Comment on Cross Platform in OpsMgr 2007 R2 Release Candidate by Daniel Hernandez

Fri, 20 May 2011 21:47:30 +0000

Hi thanks for posting this information as it has been quite helpful. I have installed the HP agents on a LINUX host that support WBEM. The manual for it is http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02471043/c02471043.pdf?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN Is located here. I used your example above to attempt to pull data from the agents but I cant figure out the ResourceURI string. name space I list root/hpq How do I go about finding the resource URI for example the ones listed below. http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2 "http://schema.omc-project.org/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2/" "http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2/" "http://schemas.vmware.com/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2/"



Comment on CentOS discovery in OpsMgr2007 R2 beta by Daniele Muscetta

Mon, 02 May 2011 10:06:03 +0000

MPs can be sealed with a key. When sealed, each depending MP will reference them by that key. I suggest you take a look at and get a bit familiar with the MP Schema here http://blogs.technet.com/b/authormps/archive/2011/02/24/management-pack-schema.aspx before walking into this territory. In particular, the Reference is explained here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee533847.aspx For an easier-to-follow step-by-step guide on how to convert the RedHat MP to work with CentOS, use the guide (it is split across multiple articles) from Robert here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/scxplat/archive/2010/01/15/building-a-centos-management-pack-part-2.aspx

Comment on Invoking Methods on the Xplat agent with WINRM by Daniele Muscetta

Are you able to run any other simpler command (like the one in my example) with the root user thru WinRM ?

So I have a question that I think you might be able to help with. We create a monitor which would read an Exit Code of 0,1,2 to report health on an activemq queue size. ActiveMQ is running on a red hat server and we can access the information pretty easily over webinterface, but we would prefer to monitor this. The script which resides on the Unix server is as such VALUE=`/opt/progress/apache-activemq-4.4.2-fuse-01-00/bin/activemq-admin query -QQueue=EmailSender.Service1.Request | grep QueueSize | awk '{ print $3 }'` if [ "$VALUE" -le 100 ]; then exit 0 elif [ "$VALUE" -le 1000 ]; then exit 1 else exit 2 fi 0= Less than 100 in the queue is healthy 1= More than 100 but less than 1000 is warning 2= More than 1000 is critical escalation We can run the script locally on the server but not able to run the script from our SCOM server. We receive SOAP-ENV:Senderwsman:AccessDeniedCIM_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED. An obvious permissions issue but I was to test using your instructions above and got this in return. winrm invoke ExecuteCommand http://schemas.microsoft.com/wbem/wscim/1/cim-schema/2/SCX_OperatingSystem?__cimnamespace=root/scx @{command="/opt/progress/fuse-message-broker-5.3.0.3/bin/activemq-admin query -QQueue=SearchIndex.Service1.Request";timeout="60"} -username:root -password:password -auth:basic -r:https://qtvslax1lmsq001.taservs.net:1270/wsman -skipCACheck -encoding:UTF-8 | find "QueueSize" Any ideas on how to make this work for us?

Hi, I tryed the same thing like you on a SCOM 2007 R2 CU4. I have edited the 2 MP from redhat (version 6.1.7000.277) and tryed to import them. The CentOS Linux 5 Operating MP tells me that it does not find the Microsoft.Linux.CentOS.Library. At the import I see that the MP has the corect name and the corect version. I have tryed importing it separatly not both at once.. and the same thing! Please HELP! Thank you in advanced

btw, some other technique to actually discover entities based on syslog messasges was shown a long time ago by Komal http://blogs.msdn.com/b/komal/archive/2007/10/05/syslog-module-enhanced.aspx altough it had the drawbacks of causing lot of config churn :-)
