Today I’m rebuilding some of my demo servers in my demo environment and before I can install the software, some pre-requisites need to be checked. You need to check if some Windows Server Roles are installed before starting the installation.
Off course you can just use the Server Manager to check the Roles and if necessary install the missing server roles.
But it’s much cooler to use PowerShell to check if you have installed the needed server roles
Just open Windows PowerShell, load the ServerManager Module and run the Get-WindowsFeature Cmdlet. That’s all to it.
And if you want to can also add the missing roles using the Add-WindowsFeature Cmdlet.
Have fun learning PowerShell!
Yesterday I was at a customer explaining OpsMgr Reporting and how they could start creating custom OpsMgr Reports. They told me they had trouble finding information about creating OpsMgr Reports so I created a list with all the information I had been saving in OneNote.
And I thought it would be a good idea to share this list with all of you. Keep in mind some info could be only for OpsMgr 2007 R2.
And you can also download the OpsMgr Authoring Reporting Guide: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=19bd0eb5-7ca0-41be-8c0f-2d95fe7ec636
Have fun creating Reports in OpsMgr 2007!
Hi people, I’m sorry but I had to remove my last two blogposts about OpsMgr vNext because there is no public beta available yet. I got a little too excited when opening the PowerShell command Shell.
If you are still interested in what is coming in the next version of OpsMgr you can watch this video where Alex de Jong talks with Vlad Joanovic about OpsMgr vNext.
When there is a public beta available I will repost the pulled blogs.
