Update: EZalert V 0.9.2.0 Advanced SCOM Alert Suppression

Update: EZalert V 0.9.2.0 Advanced SCOM Alert Suppression

EZalert is our software solution based on sophisticated machine learning algorithms that can be trained to classify SCOM alerts and filter out potential SCOM alert storms caused by false positives.

During Microsoft Ignite 2016 in Atlanta, we were very happy to launch our AI solution EZalert for advanced SCOM alert closing. EZalert is our software solution based on sophisticated machine learning algorithms that can be trained to classify SCOM alerts and filter out potential alert storms caused by false positives. This keeps the Active Alerts view of the Operations Manager console free of irrelevant alerts.

Machine Learning & SCOM Alert Closing

The machine learning component allows EZalert to learn from the SCOM administrator and mimic his or her behavior when automatically closing irrelevant SCOM alerts. EZalert is also fully compatible with SCOM 2016. Click here to request a free trial for EZalert.

If you already have access to our customer area, you can download EZalert and try it yourself.

EZalert V 0.9.2.0 Updates

To make SCOM alert closing easier for you, from now on it’s possible to add a license key through the UI. We’ve also made sure to enable SCOM administrators to exclude any rule or monitor that generates alerts in system center by adding a new Exclusion tab.

Furthermore, we have the following additions:

  • The possibility to set an user account for the services during an installation.
  • Refactored UI text and labels.
  • UI performance improvements.

How to design your SCOM 2016 Environment

How to design your SCOM 2016 Environment

System Center Operations Manager 2016 (SCOM 2016) is still in its technical preview (TP5).

As Microsoft announced, SCOM 2016 will be launched in September during Microsoft Ignite in Atlanta. This gives you about four weeks’ time to look at how to prepare your environment, design an installation or upgrade, if you are already running a previews version of Operations Manager. By the way, our booth number during Microsoft Ignite is 1972

Ignite OpsLogix

When designing your SCOM 2016 environment, there are 12 key components you should care about.

 

SCOM 2016

In this blog we’ll guide you through all of them step by step. If after these steps you still feel that you need assistance, feel free to contact us.

Component 1 – Operational Database

First and foremost, there is going to be a central operational database, holding all the database information regarding your environment.

Component 2 – Management Server

The Management Server is a central part of your environment. It houses your configuration, it talks to agents and provides access to the consoles. You can have one Management Server or multiple. These multiple Management Servers together are called a Resource Pool.

Component 3  – RMS Role

​The RMS also known as Root Management Server, since SCOM 2012 R2 is a role that has been dynamically placed in the Management Servers and Resource pools. The RMS used to be a separate server in previous versions of SCOM.

​Component 4 – Console

Your operators will be working with the console within SCOM 2016.

Components 5 & 6 – Data Warehouse Database & Reporting Server

Ever since 2012 it’s a mandatory installation part. Here you get the reporting side of Operations Manager by installing both the database side and the Reporting Server!

Component 7 – Web Console Server

​The Web Console Server allows you to access your information through the web.

Component 8 – Agent

You will be running different sorts of agents, such as Windows agents, Linux agents and all kinds of machines providing you with information regarding your environment.

Component 9 – Gateway Server

Depending on your configuration, network or other challenges you might be facing, it’s possible that you might need to add a Gateway Server. A Gateway Server allows you to deal with untrustworthy domains and helps you with latency.

Components 10, 11 & 12 – Audit Collector, Audit Database & Audit Forwarder

This is probably the least known part of Operations Manager. The Audit collector receives the information, the Audit Database is where the information is written into and there is also the Audit Forwarder, that is a part of Operations Manager’s agents. This infrastructure part is used for collecting security events.

So if you want to maintain the security of your Windows or Linux environment and you have your Operations Manager agents running there, simultaneously you can actually collect the security event and do reporting.
