System Center Service Manager – Exchange Connector 2.0

The System Center Service Manager – Exchange Connector connects Service Manager to Exchange for processing incoming emails related to incidents and change requests. The emails can update the incident action log or change the status of an incident to resolved or closed. Incoming emails with special keywords allow a change request reviewer to approve or reject a review activity and activity implementers can mark activities assigned to them as completed. The SendEmail solution allows analysts to send messages to users via email from the console.

Feature Bullet Summary: The Exchange Connector 2.0 release is compatible with Service Manager 2010 SP1. It contains the bug fixes and still contains the original set of features including:

  • Create incident from email
  • Update incident action log from email
  • Resolve or close incidents from email
  • Approve/reject change requests from email
  • Update change request “action log” from email
  • Mark manual activities completed from email
  • Add email file attachment to work items as attachments
  • Send notifications to users from the console

System Center Advisor

by Arman Obosyan 6. July 2011 08:43

System Center Advisor (рaнее известный как codename Atlanta) это онлайновая служба, которая анализирует Microsoft SQL Server и Windows Server.

Advisor собирает данные с установленных агентов, анализирует их и генерирует предупреждения такие как отсутствие исправлений безопасности или отклонения от Best Practices

Advisor также позволяет вам видеть текущею конфигурацию и историю изменений. Advisor разработан группой System Center Advisor в сотрудничестве с инженерами группы технической поддержки Microsoft. Advisor регулярно обновляется и вы всегда получаете самые последние рекомендации которые отражают опыт инженеров, которые поддерживают клиентов по всему миру.

Release Candidate версия System Center Advisor анализируют следующие компоненты:

  • Hyper-V Host
  • Windows Server 2008 and later
  • Active Directory
  • SQL Server 2008 and later
  • SQL Engine

Надеюсь что в будущих весиях список будет расширен,

System Center Advisor состоит из веб-службы (размещенной в облаке) и локальном программном обеспечении установленым в вашей среде.
Программное обеспечение состоит из шлюза и агента. Агент собирает данные с сервера и анализирует его с помощью набора правил (аналогично System Center Operations Manager)
Анализируемые данные регулярно передаются от агента на шлюз для передачи данных на веб-службу, результаты и состояние можно смотреть с любого места, достаточно web browser с поддержкой Silverlight и наличие доступа liveid, схема работы выглядит следующим образом

Вот пока на этом все, жаль что не удалось протестировать работу с Active Directory и Hyper-V, но все еще впереди.

 

Добавлю что, Release Candidate версия System Center Advisor доступна для всех, а вот Финальная версия сервиса будет доступна только как Software Assurance benefit.

Exchange Server Management Packs and Automatically Monitor Exchange Servers

by Arman Obosyan 24. February 2010 01:08

…не раз меня спрашивали; вот поставили мы Operation Manager импортировали Exchange Management Pack а он не мониторит что-то, что делать?

Я уже рассказывал вкратце как быстренько запустить мониторинг Exchange Server на базе Operation Manager, но вот тут попался пост который описывает ситуацию в которой после импорта Management Pack от Exchange Server ничего не происходит, так что все кто еще озадачен этим вопросом смотрим подробности:

By default, the Microsoft Exchange 2007 Management Packs for Operations Manager 2007 will not automatically start monitoring of any Exchange 2007 Servers even if you have imported the Management Pack. This means that the servers won’t automatically show up in the Exchange views in the monitoring section of the console.

This behavior enables you to start monitoring all your servers immediately, or you can proceed more slowly and enable monitoring of a few Exchange servers at a time.
