This week I was moving from London to Berlin. Last week I was creating a small video of the town I was living in (Kingston upon Thames). Enjoy watching it!
Over Christmas I could finally find some time to test my new DJI Mavic Pro. An amazing device and a lot of fun to fly around! The video shows my hometown Laufenburg.
In a secure SCOM environment the security setting for “Manual Agent Installation” should always be set to “Review new manual agent installation in pending management view”.
This can lead to devices not being discovered automatically after the servers were build. Yeah people forget something like that from time to time 😉
To avoid this I created a small PowerShell script to create an E-Mail report every morning (Scheduled Task).
Please note that the user account needs to have admin access in SCOM to query the information. The user also must have access to the SMTP server or the server needs to be allowed to relay mails.
After the nightly reboots of the XenApp servers it appears to happen that some of the machines are not able to register themselves at the delivery controller.
From time to time I found hosts in a grey status where it was hard to determine what was the issue.
I spend hours googling error codes, reading through MS forums, removing and installing agents, clearing HealthState folders – nothing did help.
