I know this isn’t the first blog about what’s in a MP, but lately I often get asked what’s in MP from my fellow Premier Field Engineers. Often they want to know which rules and monitors are in a MP for a certain application and which thresholds are used.
There are several tools available for looking into a MP:
But they all have one drawback and that is you need to have the OpsMgr consoles and/or access to the RMS. Except for the OpsManJam Library off course ;-)
Clive tells us that you can get it working if you have the appropriate platform version of the SDK assemblies Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.dll and Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Common.dll in the same folder as the tool. The SDK assemblies can be found and copied from the management server installation folder SDK Binaries. But you still need to have access to a RMS.
So what do I use to get the contents of a MP? That depends on what I want to know and from which MP I want the info.
I hope this helps you deciding which tools to use if you are looking for MP content.
