Ultrasound - Monitoring and Troubleshooting Tool for File Replication Service (FRS)

Brief Description

Ultrasound is a monitoring and troubleshooting tool for the File Replication Service (FRS).

Overview

Ultrasound is a monitoring and troubleshooting tool for the File Replication Service (FRS). FRS is a legacy technology that replicates files and folders that are stored in Distributed File System (DFS) folders or in the System Volume (SYSVOL) folder on domain controllers.
Note: FRS was replaced by DFS Replication for replicating DFS folders in Windows Server 2003® R2, and for SYSVOL replication in domains using the Windows Server 2008 domain functional mode.
Ultrasound measures the health of FRS replica sets by providing health ratings and historical information about the replica sets. Ultrasound also allows administrators to monitor the progress of replication and detect problems that can cause replication to become backlogged or stopped.
There are three components to Ultrasound.

  • WMI providers: These WMI providers are installed on each member of an FRS replica set. They gather FRS status information for the local FRS member and provide the information to the Ultrasound controller, which polls for this information.
  • Ultrasound controller: The Ultrasound controller is the service component of Ultrasound that collects data about FRS members, logs the information in the Ultrasound database, and analyzes the data to look for problems or other issues that require administrator notification or intervention.
  • Ultrasound console: The Ultrasound console is the user interface of Ultrasound controller and is installed on the same computer as the Ultrasound controller. Administrators can use the Ultrasound console to create e-mail alerts for serious problems as well as keep track of changes to the FRS configuration or tasks they performed in response to alerts.

Release Notes

  • Version 1.0.4080.0 of Ultrasound adds support for monitoring FRS replica sets hosted on servers running Windows Server® 2008. It also allows the use of SQL Server® 2005 as the database for collecting data about monitored replica sets.
  • No new features have been added to Ultrasound in this release.
  • Important Note (Installing on Windows Server 2008, x64 versions)
    To install the Ultrasound Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider on an x64 version of Windows Server 2008, you must first install the hotfix that is included in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 954737. Click here to install the hotfix.

Dynamics CRM Integration with Office Communications Server

Brief Description

This sample application makes use of an AJAX/JavaScript client that communicates with the Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access 2007 server to provide a Web-based Live Chat solution that connects with a Microsoft Dynamics® CRM 4.0 server.

Overview

In this sample you will work with a server-based messaging bot capable of providing intelligent real time communications to multiple endpoints within an Office Communications Server environment. This bot communicates with customers through an AJAX-based Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access server. Messages are sent through an automated script managed by a Windows Workflow Foundation Sequential Workflow to create an intelligent automated response system.
When a conversation between a customer and the bot is finished, the data that was gathered by the bot is stored in a queue hosted by a Windows Communication Foundation service. This allows live persons to take over the conversation and gather any further desired information. Once the live conversation is complete, the queued data can be sent directly to an active Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 server through a set of Web services.

Communicator 2007 Custom Tabs - Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 Sample

Brief Description

This sample demonstrates how to add custom tabs to the Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 desktop client.

Overview

The tabs in Communicator 2007 host an instance of the Windows Internet Explorer Internet browser. When a tab is clicked, Communicator automatically passes the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) address for the current user as well as one or more contact SIP addresses. This enables developers to create Web applications that consume the SIPs and present relevant, SIP-tailored information to the end user, all within the Communicator client.
This sample consists of virtual directory containing files that Communicator uses to configure the tabs, as well as a sample Web application that is displayed in a custom Communicator tab.

Integrating Web Chat Functionality - Microsoft Unified Communications AJAX API Sample

Brief Description

This sample shows how to use the Unified Communications AJAX SDK to provide presence and chat functionality in a customer-facing Web site. This allows users of the Web site to chat with customer service representatives.

Overview

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 provides secure and reliable instant messaging in which all end points are always authenticated against Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). While this security is necessary, it can make it very difficult to create solutions where one or more of the end users do not have access to an Active Directory account.
This sample illustrates a solution that enables employees within a corporate domain to communicate directly and in real time with others outside the domain via a medium such as their corporate Web site.
