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

OMS Linux Agent Installation Errors on Ubuntu 16.04.2

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, Linux, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

I recently was working on some OMS Linux agent testing and sought to test with the 16.04.2 flavor of Ubuntu for the first time. Upon downloading the relevant bundle for my computer as described in my previous article, an attempt to upgrade (–upgrade) the package in the system failed with the dreaded “Errors were encountered while processing” errors, and I saw this across the board on all of the Ubuntu 16.04.2 computers. Looks like a missing dependency is the culprit. So here’s what I did to address this and onboard this Ubuntu distro to my OMS workspace: I uninstalled the package and removed all related data, using the –purge bundle operation: sudo sh ./omsagent-1.3.4-127.universal.x64.sh --purge and then proceeded to address the dependency.

UPDATE: APM Feature in SCOM 2016 Causes Failures in certain IIS Application Pools

Chiyo OdikaOpsMgr, SCOMLeave a Comment

I recently wrote an article about an issue that came to the fore a few months ago relating to how the Application Performance Monitoring (APM) feature in SCOM 2016 agent causes IIS Application pools running under the .NET Framework 2.0 runtime to fail. See the article here: http://www.mrchiyo.com/scom-2016-apm-linked-to-iis-application-pool-failures/. It was expected that a definitive fix for this issue would ship with Update rollup 3 for SCOM 2016. However, update rollup 3 (UR3) for SCOM 2016 was released a few days ago, but it does not appear to have a definitive fix for this issue. See the official update notes here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4016126/update-rollup-3-for-system-center-2016-operations-manager   MICROSOFT RECOMMENDED WORKAROUNDS:  Instead of a definitive fix, the Microsoft product team has highlighted various deployment scenarios, and … Read More
