SCOM : Open view direct in console

Written by Ingmar Verheij on April 4th, 2011. Posted in Operations Manager

System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) gives you great insights in your IT infrastructure. (Pro) active monitoring you’re environment enables you to respond quickly to alerts and (maybe) prevent outage.

One way to get informed is by hanging monitors in the “IT room” with dashboards displaying the environment. You can create a “view” in the Management Console displaying the information needed.

Ideally a dedicated machine boots up and displays the view you created. You can start the System Center Operations Manager with the option / ViewName: <viewname> to open the console and show the view.

Microsoft.MOM.UI.Console.exe

However if you start the console with the name of the view you get this error:

The view could not be found

Do we need ‘fancy’ features for VDI?

Written by Ingmar Verheij on October 30th, 2009. Posted in Desktop Virtualization

Everyone knows that more and more people are thinking about VDI, or at least they’re talking about VDI. And most of these people don’t really know what they’re talking about, what they really want and what they need. There are more usecases, solutions, alternatives which might be better for most of them.
In this article i’m talking about ‘hosted virtual desktops’, the way most people see VDI. The desktop is a virtual machine running on a hypervisor in the datacenter.

Yesterday I attended a presentation where VMware was talking about VMware View, there product for VDI implementations. In this presentation one of the key-features of VMware View was there ESX plaform, and all the ‘fancy’ features this hypervisor has. And with ‘fancy’ features I mean features like VMotion, High Availability, DRS and Fault Tolerance.
These are all great features and very usefull, in enterprise environments, for servers. In smaller environments these features aren’t necessary or even needed. In fact, in most enterprise environments not all features are really required, there used because “we can”.
