After posting some years ago a blog post with all the OpsMgr 2007 tools I thought it would be time for a new OM2012 Toolbox blog post.
The previous version 1.7 (that works with OpsMgr 2007 and 2007 R2) was released here. Version 2.1.2 has been updated to work with OpsMgr 2012, and now includes support for MPB files (MP Bundles) as well as the ability to Unseal and Unpack MP Bundles. Warning: only MP Bundles that contain a single ManagementPack are supported; there are some Service Manager MPBs that contain multiple ManagementPacks in a single bundle, and this tool currently cannot deal correctly with those.
This utility allows you to compare Management Packs between your Operations Manager and/or Service Manager environments.
Online catalog check is also available.
Changes in this version:
SCOMTypeView is a tool help MPAuthor visualize ManagementPackClass, ManagementPackRelationship, showing them in treeview. The most important, you can see how the specific MonitoringObject is connected with other MonitoringObject. This tool connect to your local ManagementGroup, showing real data in time.
Coretech XML Connector for SCOM 2012
The Alert Update Connector can modify alert custom fields with additional information useful for situations like controlling alert forwarding to incident management systems and help reduce noise in the incident creation process.
In OpsMgr 2012, we provided users the ability to create customized dashboards using the OpsMgr 2012 console. The GTM.exe tool provided in this blog allows you to build off these dashboard investments, in particular we allow you to accomplish three specific tasks that you cannot do via the console.
1. Turn IT Pro Console created dashboards into shippable MPs by stripping out management group specific parameters (removes MG GUIDs from dashboard MPs)
2. Provides the ability to have a custom dashboard show up under any Management Pack folder in the Monitoring view.
3. Have a custom dashboard be launched from the task pane when you pick a specific computer or object.
Let me please know if I’m missing some other great OM2012 tools.
Hi Stefan, Thanks for this great list. I'm wondering if you could share the SCOMTypeView tool? Like you said, the download link from System Center Central is not valid anymore.
thanks for the link. I'll share it with my customers.
This is new link to the SCOMTypeView tool: http://t.co/dt9m1rCG
any chance to have an updated version of Effective Configuration Viewer one of these days ?
Thanks for the great list of tools. The OpsMgr2012 visio stencils might come in handy too:
Thanks for the tip. Will update the list as soon as possible.
I've added the Visio Stencils.
