Failed to connect to server – it’s never a nice message to get from your system. The problem with this error, is that the ‘additional info’ does not really give you an idea where to start. Which is why you are here I guess.

What could it be? Lets check out some possible solutions.

ENABLE SCOM SUBSCRIPTIONS WITH POWERSHELL WITH “FEWER MESSAGES”

ENABLE SCOM SUBSCRIPTIONS WITH POWERSHELL WITH “FEWER MESSAGES”

Three times, I’ve made custom solutions for companys regarding ‘Fewer Messages’ when it comes to SCOM Notification Subscriptions. A user over at technet found a solution to this, an our SCOM Master over at AnaOps, Mr. Sameer Mhaisekar wrote a blog post about it.

Extremely nice find, something that has been bothering SCOM admins for ages!

SCOM 2019 Upgrade Path

OpsMgr 2019 – Its ALMOST here!

As of yesterday I heard from the product manager of SCOM 2019, that it will be available in March (Along with the other System Center 2019 products). So we’re really close!

There are alot of feature updates and enhancements for SCOM 2019 including, but not limited to:

  • HTML5 dashboards
  • Linux Log file monitoring
  • Discovery of third-party Linux MPs
  • Enhanced notification & subscription experience
  • Better alert management
  • Removed Silverlight dependencies
  • SQL Server 2017 Support
  • Service Logons enabled
  • VSAE Support for Visual Studio 2017
  • Monitoring Ubuntu 18 & Debian9

There will also be an enhanced Azure Management Pack that will be available for other versions of SCOM aswell.

Upgrade Path

To upgrade directly to SCOM 2019, you can do so from the following versions:

  • SCOM 2016
  • SCOM 1801
  • SCOM 1807

If you are on a lower version, you will need to upgrade to SCOM 2016 first and then upgrade to SCOM 2019.

Earlier in the year, I shared some knowledge about installing SCOM on SQL Server 2017 – So if you run into errors, please check out that blogpost.

Thank you guys, and HAPPY SCOMMING!

RegularToolbox – A front-end tool!

RegularToolbox – A front-end tool!

I am almost done with the ‘public preview’ of the tool that I’ve been working on. As I wrote in the previous post, this is a tool designed to help the ‘front-end’ to gather all the needed info with just one click. I’ve expanded the tool, not only to gather information, but also to do some actions. Since this is ‘public preview’ the tool and its functions/design is/could be subject to change.

I will go over the features tomorrow, and will be releasing the application next week. If you have any questions, or feature requests – SHOOT! I have been dying for more ideas to throw at the project.

DB operations failed with SQL error 10343

DB operations failed with SQL error 10343

DB operations failed with SQL error 10343. The error was: CREATE or ALTER ASSEMBLY…..

This error occurs if you try to install a new OpsMgr database to a SQL Server 2017 (or higher i assume).  This is because there has been added an extra layer of securty to the SQL Server since the 2017 release. Specificly the “CLR strict security” has been enabled by default. We can how ever, turn this off quite easily by running the following query on the SQL Server/Instance.
