Meet GDPR Compliance requirements with OMS

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

In April 2016, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was approved and is due to take effect in May 2018. GDPR is being touted as the most important change in data privacy regulation in over two decades, and it imposes new data privacy rules on companies, government agencies, and any organizations that do business in and with the European Union (EU). This is of particular significance because of the positive implications of such a regulation on data privacy, the benefits of the inevitable shift in the way organizations across the region and business partners around the world will now approach data privacy, and because non-compliant organizations could be subject to hefty fines, as is often the … Read More

Migrate Clients to a ConfigMgr HTTPS Site

Chiyo OdikaConfigMgr, SCCMLeave a Comment

Happy Holidays friends! I’ve been rather busy with several riveting initiatives of recent, and thought I’d share one of them. In this case, some ideas on migrating clients to a ConfigMgr destination hierarchy that is configured for HTTPS which means that all client to server communication happens over HTTPS. This article will expressly cover ideas on said migration. This article will not cover the steps for configuring HTTPs communication in ConfigMgr. Refer to the links below for some guidance on HTTPS configuration for ConfigMgr. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrdogs/2015/01/21/configmgr-2012-r2-certificate-requirements-and-https-configuration/ https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/network/pki-certificate-requirements I strongly recommend that you acquaint yourself with the concepts and material covered in both articles and elesewhere steps before continuing with this article. Additionally, I recommend reading the fairly detailed conceptual guidelines on … Read More

Multi-line Queries Now in OMS Log Search Editor

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

Fans of multi-line queries rejoice! The OMS/ Log Analytics Log Search editor now supports multi-line queries. Even before the new Log Analytics search language was introduced, the constraints of the Log Search editor field were quite apparent. This has been a sorely needed feature in Log Search, and I imagine that ardent users of the query language heaved a collective sigh of relief when the Analytics portal was introduced with multi-line query support.  With the introduction of the Analytics portal, which supports multi-line queries and advanced analytics capabilities, the analytics possibilities seem endless.   It’s also worth noting that in addition to the multi-line query support, Log Search editor also features intellisense providing query suggestions as you type. The editor … Read More

DPM Modify Protection Group Error 31224

Chiyo OdikaDPM, SQL, SYSTEM CENTERLeave a Comment

Here’s a Scenario: I protected some SQL data sources in DPM in a bid to ensure that transaction logs got backed up, and I configured my DPM protection group synchronization frequency accordingly, but wasn’t seeing my data getting backed up as frequently as expected. To remediate this, I modified my protection group by unprotecting said data, and re-protecting by defining desired settings in another protection group. At this point my data was protected and had several recovery points, but not with the desired frequency. I then unprotected to test with different settings, and upon attempting to protect the data again, I encountered the following error below: Modify protection group: [group name] failed: Error 31224: [data path] has recently been migrated. … Read More
