Example of setting up a custom monitor in SCOM with a Powershell Script – Monitor NIC teams in SCOM

In this blogpost, I'll run through an example of how to configure a monitor from the ground up, going through every step, for making a monitor in Powershell for SCOM. It's a very basic script, but it have a value we measure on, so you have all the basic building blocks. But first… What time is it? ADVENTURE TIME! The other day I was transferring an OS Image to one of our new Hyper-V servers, and the transfer speed was around 10 Mbit on our internal network. Asking the guy responsible for the server if there was something wrong, and [...]

FTP / SFTP monitor for SCOM

In this post we'll make a script for a FTP / SFTP monitor that can monitor the FTP/SFTP status, by doing the following operations: -Log in -Upload a file -Download a file -Delete the file Since Powershell doesn't have any built-in ftp support I was looking for some alternatives, and since I use WinSCP normally for ftp/sftp I found that they also support Powershell scripting, so why not take advantage of this? This guide was written with great help from WinSCP's own page: https://winscp.net/eng/docs/library_powershell Get the SSH fingerprint (This part is only nessary for the SFTP solution). Since we need the SSH [...]

Silent install Java 8 Update 71 and 72 with SCCM

In my last post about silent / unattended installation of Java 8 Update 66, we followed the new guidelines for how to install Java 8 silently by Oracle. The problem with that method is that it works when you try to run your script locally with administrator privileges it will work fine, but when you run the same script through SCCM / Configuration Manager, it will fail. And just to confuse you even more, it will only fail for the 32-bit version of java, not the 64-bit, even though you use the exact same method. This problem have been reported [...]

December 18th: Unattended Java 8 update 66 installation

This is a request we often get from our customers as Oracle often updates Java. This blogpost takes the newest version of Java 8 as an example, and on this date (December 18th) it’s Java Version 8 Update 66. Through the different updates the installation method has changed, but the general idea is the same, so it should be possible to use this for the next updates of Java version 8. First off we want to obtain the newest version of Java, and in an offline installer version, we can get that from Oracle’s own site. Keep in mind that [...]
