Chiyo OdikaLinux, 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.

OMS AD Assessment No data Found errors

Chiyo OdikaAZURE, 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.

New OMS Pricing and Licensing

Chiyo OdikaMicrosoft Operations Management Suite, OMSLeave a Comment

One of the many OMS related announcements made during Ignite 2016 is that of the new pricing and licensing structure for OMS.

This new subscription model is comprised of 2 types of subscriptions. For enterprises, E1 and E2 subscriptions are structured per node per month with an annual commitment, and provide a significant discount (~50%) compared to purchasing the included … Read More
