Chiyo OdikaAZURE, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

The Active Directory (AD) Assessment management pack is one of the many solutions available to users in OMS. This solution assesses the risk and health of your server environments on a regular interval and provides a prioritized list of recommendations specific to your deployed server infrastructure. If upon adding this solution to your OMS workspace, you encounter “No data found” errors, it’s a likely indication that you do not have the OMS agent installed on any domain controllers managed in your workspace. You can further verify this by using the following OMS search query and reviewing the results.

The search result detail for managed computers will indicate whether or not they meet the requirements for assessment by the solution. … Read More

OMS is a collection of cloud based services for managing and protecting your on-premise and cloud environments. Since OMS is implemented as a cloud based service, you can have it up and running quickly with minimal investment in infrastructure services. Read this detailed article on how to get started with, and onboard to the service.

Exploring OMS Settings and the New UI Changes

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

If you’ve been using OMS for some time, you may have noticed quite a few changes to various aspects of the OMS UI. Today I’d like to go over the most recent OMS user interface update —  That of the Settings workspace.  In the past, the settings workspace presented the various tab options horizontally in the UI, and clicking on a tab took you directly to the relevant data for that tab. This layout was functional, but was neither the most aesthetic nor intuitive layout.   With the new UI updates, the settings tabs are now presented in a vertical layout with each tab expanding out to display the relevant content in a more intuitive and aesthetic layout. The settings … Read More

Configure OMS Connection to ConfigMgr — Step by Step

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, ConfigMgr, Microsoft Operations Management Suite, OMS2 Comments

The 1606 release of System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) comes with a whole slew of new features, including a pre-release Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) Connector feature. Learn about ConfigMgr 1606 here. The OMS connector will enable you to sync data such as your collections from ConfigMgr to OMS. Once the collection information is synced to OMS you can then subject any OMS agent-managed endpoint to some action, such as patching, by virtue of its membership in a collection. When you combine this capability with existing system update and other update information that exists in OMS, the practical and other applications are rather evident. Note that because this is a pre-release feature it is meant for early pre-production testing, and … Read More
