Changing Alert Resolution State automatically

If you need to change the Resolution State when a new Alert appears, or change the status of an alert from a specific source or a given period of time, it could be done with a script. The script will be called by creating a Notification. Often you specify a SMTP, SMS or IM as a Channel but lets instead call a script – In this sample I will use a Powershell script to change new alerts Resolution state to the “Print Guys”. Lets start with creating a Command Notification Channel - Give it a name like this one: Start [...]

Building a Discovery and a Group based on Computername Convention

Timeout Expired on Report Server

One question I often get from System Center folks is about the SQL Reporting Services and report timeout. Unfortunately Microsoft have an default value on many report dataset which is to low for an production environment. The easy solution would be to edit the RSReportServer.Config XML file, I mean - in this file we have a Tag called SQLCommandTimeoutSeconds and would it be great if we could use this one. But in fact your Report server dosn't use the SQL timeout value specified in this file... Symptoms: If you see the error message: "An error occurred during client rendering" Like [...]

WMI Inconsistent or Error 25205 Failed to Uninstall SDK MOF

In the past couple of years I have stumbled over this error when I install OpsMgr Clients - It seams like some products are doing naughty things with the WMI database, which then leaves the WMI repository in Inconsistent state. The way I correct this is by using the following recipe: Error when installing OpsMgr Agent: Symptoms: Check Properties on your computer, are there no information in Processor and Memory????? Resolution: 1)      Change to C:\windows\system32\wbem 2)      Run the command: winmgmt /verifyrepository 3)      Check the result: “WMI repository is INCONSISTENT” ? 4)      If so run the command: winmgmt /salvagerepository 5)      Check [...]

Please change the first lines of the script to [...]
