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.
