SCOM OpsLogix product connector: how to remove & add it

An easy how to guide for adding and removing the OpsLogix SCOM product connector.

It so happened that I was helping a customer troubleshoot an issue with connectors in an environment that had been upgraded from SCOM 2007 R2 to SCOM 2012 R2. To rule out some of the possibilities we decided to first remove the OpsLogix product connector, and re-add it manually.

ADVICE WARNING: Removing the wrong connector can seriously damage your System Center Operations Manager environment, so use these scripts at your own risk.

To add the OpsLogix product connector manually in SCOM, you can run the following powershell script:

import-module OperationsManager

$Connector = New-Object Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.ConnectorFramework.ConnectorInfo

$Connector.Name = “OpsLogix”

$Connector.Description = “Connector for OpsLogix Intelligent Management Packs”

$Guid = “{95d30868-704a-4889-bf89-2ee4ec84c7eb}”

$mg = Get-SCOMManagementGroup

$connection = $mg.ConnectorFramework.Setup($Connector,$Guid)

$connection.Initialize();

After running these Powershell commands you should be able to see the connector in the SCOM console.

To remove the OpsLogix product connector run the following powershell script:

import-module OperationsManager

$Connector = Get-SCOMConnector -Name “OpsLogix”

if($Connector.Initialized)

{

 $Connector.Uninitialize()

}

Remove-SCOMConnector $Connector

After removing the connector you might have to restart the SDK Service for System Center Operations Manager. I hope this article was useful and if you have any requests or questions feel free to reach out to our OpsLogix team.

How to create an OpsLogix web tile for Microsoft Band

I had been eyeing the Microsoft Band 2 for a while, but decided that there were more pressing gadgets to be bought. Then for Valentine’s Day my wife gave me a Microsoft Band 2, she really knows how to get to a geeks heart!

First of all, I think Microsoft really stepped up its products, and I’m impressed with the quality look and feel of its products, and this holds true when it comes to the Microsoft Band 2. After playing around with its health features and exploring the various apps, like the Starbucks app, as a developer I naturally asked myself how I program something cool for this thing.
After spending some time on google, I found that there is a great SDK for building Windows Phone, iPhone and Android apps. At this point writing a “Hello Word” app seemed a bit of an effort because even a minor app like that would require quite some time to build. I think the Microsoft Band team realized this too and created Web Tiles. Web Tiles basically link a tile on your Microsoft Band to an URL which returns data on the web. (more…)
