I recently needed to retrieve the object model from Operations Manager 2012. I needed this information so that I could pass the "target" collection back to the developers for proper targeting when creating new monitors. I wanted each developer to have a better understanding of the object model and how to target the correct class. I wrote this PowerShell ......

Servers will turn grey in the SCOM console for a number of reasons but the main reason is the health service is no longer returning a heartbeat back to the SCOM console. When a monitored server is grey is means the server is no longer monitored and there is an issue. The issue needs to be resolved in order for the server to be turned back to normal ......

Over the years debugging XSLT has gotten better and better but one thing continues to be lacking. XSLT debugging with .NET component references in the XSLT. I know there are some tools that do a decent job but something is always lacking. Well I decided to write an XSLT debugger that uses Visual Studio. It is fairly easy to use and is very robust. I ......

We have had a challenge to get TFS to record a test and replay it multiple times. I think the basics are easy but let me add a few more kinks. Session variable in the URL A variable that is returned in the response query that changes at each post A SessionID for database connectivity, this variable is good throughout the entire session https/SSL The ......

This is in the instructions but I missed it... Make sure that if the BizTalk EDI Base Service is disabled make it manual. If you do not there will be issues. Another item is we use Covast. Covast has an adapter and if you have set it up you must take it out of the adapters list or the new EDI adapter will fail. This took me about 5 times of configuring ......

For a 32-bit adapter, the BizTalk Server Administration Console uses the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT branch in the registry to obtain custom adapter configuration. If a 32-bit adapter is installed on a 64-bit server, the BizTalk Serve Administration Console instead uses the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\ branch for adapter configuration data. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/... ......

I found a great article on performance testing. The test consists of BTS 2004, BTS 2006 w SQL 2000, and BTS 2006 w/ SQL 2005. This article is a great read. Enjoy. Well it seems that infosys now requires you to request a copy. I guess to many of you went and downloaded it directly. The link to request the copy is: http://www.infosys.com/micr... ......

The first thing I learned about TFS is that if you have source safe installed and install TFS then you must go to Tools>Options>SourceC... and change the provider to Visual Studio Team Foundation Server. The good thing about TFS is that it does allow you to make mistakes while adding source files and you can delete the project the bad thing ......

Well it has been a while since my last post and I thought I would just write and say hello to those that view my blog. I am beginning work with TFS and I will let you know my opinion on that shortly. I have learned a lot in the past few months working with Biztalk 2006. I really like the product and like the new innovations that Microsoft has done. ......

Sometimes it is useful to create an XSLT template for use in a map using the mapper. Creating a template for reuse during the map is not as hard as it may seem. First, Drag 2 scripting functoids to the map canvas. The first scripting functoid needs to be setup as an XSLT Template. Here is some sample code to put in the template. <xsl:template name="to-numeric"> ......

Error: "exhausted the network retry attempts" Do you have over 50 receive locations that you use for Biztalk 2004/2006. Have you ever found them disabled because of Exhausted Network Retries? The problem is not Biztalk but Windows Server 2003 and NetBIOS. Basically it comes down to a default value of connections to a particular server. The default value ......
