MOF Case Study: FullArmor and their PolicyPortal

By using the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager and the Microsoft IT GRC Process Management Pack for System Center Service Manager—which leverages the IT Compliance Management Series—FullArmor was able to include functionality that evolved FullArmor PolicyPortal, a software-plus-services offering modeled using Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) and built on top of the Windows Azure Services Platform that secures and manages remote endpoints, into an end-to-end security and compliance solution.

 

 

FullArmor Corp., a Boston-based Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, helps large organizations manage their information technology (IT) user policies and endpoint security with solutions based on Microsoft products and technologies, including the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Group Policy, and the Windows PowerShell command-line interface.

Support for SCOM 2007 R2 that runs on a SQL Server 2008 R2

The support is divided into two phases. Phase one supports new installations of System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2. Phase two supports upgrading an existing System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 deployment to run on a SQL Server 2008 R2 database. The existing deployment has database roles hosted on a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (SP3) server or on a Microsoft SQL 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) server. This article talks about the support for phase one. The support for phase two will be announced separately as a part of a future cumulative update of System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2.

SCSM 2010: Report issue during installation

During SCSM 2010 installation you can receive the message:

 

 

An error occurred while executing a custom action:_AssignDwAdminAsSsrsContentMangerOnRootFolder.1CA03A32_06E0_

 

 

This happens because you can’t install SCSM and SCOM using same SQL Reporting Services.

 

Hope this helps.

SCOM 2007: Unable to remove an alert in Active Alerts view

Sometimes you can’t remove an alert in SCOM Console (Active Alerts view), and receive this message:

 

 

 

An object of type MonitoringAlert with Id 030000ed-b019-4f1b-a53c-33b005d793d3 was not found

 

 

To solve this issue you have two alternatives, that are:

 

First Alternative: Create a shortcut to SCOM Console and write after path the command /clearcache, like the example:

 

 

"C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Microsoft.MOM.UI.Console.exe" /clearcache

 

 

But, be careful because using this a lot you can have high workload on your RMS.

 

Second Alternative: In your user profile access the path:

 

 

\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft.Mom.UI.Console

 

 

Where USER need to be the User Name for the logged user accessing SCOM Console. And delete the momcache.mdb file.

 

Hope this helps.

MMS 2011 Content Survey

What do you want to see on MMS 2011? Let’s participate:

 

 

Microsoft Management Summit (MMS 2011) planning is well underway, and as we start putting the plans for content together, we’d like to ensure that the event matches the needs and requirements of attendees. Our aim is to provide the information and resources you will need to manage your organization’s IT assets safely and effectively. To help us achieve this goal, we would appreciate your help.

If you are considering attending MMS 2011, we invite you to take a few moments to complete the MMS 2011 Content Survey. By taking a few minutes to tell us about your IT background and expectations for the event content, you’ll help ensure the topics and labs offered during MMS 2011 are relevant to you and your organization. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Your answers will be kept confidential, and are used only as part of a statistical analysis to help allocate breakout session and hands-on lab slots where they are most needed.

When the survey closes on Wednesday, November 24th, 2010, we will draw two entries from amongst the responses and will send a Portable Media Player to those respondents. If you would like to be entered for this draw, simply enter your email address in the text box below. Supplied email addresses will only be used for the purposes of winner notification and will not be stored or used in any other way.

 

Thanks in advance for helping us make MMS 2011 your IT event of the year!

 

 

Hope this helps.
