  1. OMS agent for macOS

    I'd like to be able to push syslog and other data data from macOS to Log Analytics, however there is not OMS agent for macOS.

  2. Request to add BMC Remedy partner type in ITSM Connection

    Hi Team,

    Could you please add BMC Remedy partner type in ITSM connection in LogicApps as this connection is not available which is commonly used tool in most of the software companies.
    Adding this connector will help us to automatically creates remedy tickets whenever there is a failure in ADF or if any component reaches threshold limits

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  3. Multihome agents

    It would be fantastic if we could multihome agents to various workspaces.
    Right now we use the SCOM agent to connect to OMS, which means one OMS workspace. But we would like to have multiple workspaces depending on type of server (eg Production servers, Dev servers, application servers etc).
    I understand we can multihome OMS to different workspaces by multihoming the SCOM agent to different SCOM management groups, but having an entire management group set up just so agents can talk to different OMS workspaces is like swatting a fly with a sledgehammer.
    Even if we can manually configure each…

  4. Fix Bug in Agent

    We started seeing this error after installing the OMS agent on our servers.

    An unmarshaling policy check was performed when unmarshaling a custom marshaled object and the class {45FB4600-E6E8-4928-B25E-50476FF79425} was rejected.

    A quick search on the internet shows other people have the same error after installing the OMS agent also.

    We’re aware of an issue that can cause this error to be logged when the Update Assessment solution is installed.
    You can check if this is what you’re seeing my temporarily removing the Update Assessment solution and confirming the errors stop.

    The Update Assessment solution functionality is not affected and you can safely ignore this error.

  5. Allow me to remove managed systems (Management Groups and Directly Connected Servers/Agents) from Usage page

    Implements a feature to remove managed ( Management Groups and to Directly Connected Servers ) Overview Usage from want? I think even if servers Connected Directly, the agent is uninstalled, cannot be removed from Operational Insights Usage. Cannot disconnect in the SCOM Management Groups are for the Operational Insights on want to remove.

    In the current implementation, Management groups CAN already be removed, but only once they are ‘stale’ == have not reported ANY data for >14days, the link to remove will appear.

    The number of Directly reporting agents in ‘settings’ page is the actual number of servers registered, but the drill down will take you to search (where servers presence is inferred from the data).

    We will be working on options to de-register directly connected servers, similarly to we offer for SCOM management groups.

  6. Disable Agent Data Collection from OMS Portal

    Allow to enable/disable/schedule data collection of specific agents. This allows keeping data volume down during tests (e.g. pen or security testing) that might generate lots of events that could you go over the licensed data collection threshold. Maybe combinable with OMS Alert supression.

  7. Surface hub cannot connect to OMS using a proxy

    we documented at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/surface-hub/monitor-surface-hub?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396:

    Note
    Surface Hub does not currently support the use of a proxy server to communicate with the OMS service.

    However, in most customer environment a proxy cannot be bypassed. This limitiation must be changed to allow the SurfaceHub OMS Agent to communicate with the OMS Workspace over a Proxy.

  8. Push\Install of Microsoft Monitoring Agent from OMS

    If you really want this to be used for stand alone clients, which I think is a great idea for the hybrid cloud, there needs to be an easier way to get the agent installed on those devices.

  9. Control when Advisor MPs are downloaded

    We need to control when Advisor MPs are introduced to our environment to prevent possible outages during production business hours. It would be nice to set a maintenance windows to control when changes are introduces. It would also be beneficial to be able to introduce the MPs to pre-Prod prior to Prod environments.

    Hi, we are discussing this internally.

    Today you have a way to do this, by overriding the rules that perform MP/IP download and import – there is an override MP here http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2015/02/06/notice-upcoming-url-change-for-opsmgr-reporting-to-opinsights.aspx
    - you could keep them turned off in PROD and leave them enabled in QA/TEST – once you see a new MP has been updated in the test environment, you can remove the override in prod/let the update run/then block it again.

    We are determining how to make this more polished.
    Also see the similar idea http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/7161777-intelligence-pack-updates

  10. SCOM-OMS prerequisites checker tool

    Tool which can be used to do prerequisite check for connection between Agent/MS and OMS.
    Based on firewall requirements:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt484101.aspx
    including option for Proxy server and Proxy user account.
    It would be a great help for deployment and troubleshooting scenarios.

  13. MSI-based Windows agent for Intune compatibility

    OMS Windows agent as MSI installer rather than a .exe setup. This enables the agent to be directly deployable wo Windows 10 devices through Intune and OMA-DM.

  16. Ability to define a "friendly"name for machines reporting into Azure Opperational Insights

    In our scenario as a ISV we have many machines at different customer sites that have the same machine name. It would be extremely helpful if we were able to provide a friendly name or a description for machines reporting into the Azure Operational Insights Console.

  17. Azure Operational Insights Onboarding Issues, Error 4200

    I have been have some issues connecting my existing Operations Center install to Operational Insights. I had experimented with the very first version of operational insights and had subsequentially removed it after some initial testing, I have readded the management packs and tried to reconnect to a new workspace I have created but I get the following Error :

    Error 4200: Unable to register to Operational Insights Service. Please contact the system administrator.

    I do notice that some of the management packs are downloaded, but I also received a lot of error messages in my event logs.

    The following messages…

    Error 4200 is “Unable To Save Settings”.
    This means that registration and saving the certificate in the Runas profile in SCOM succeeded, but when we tried to save the other settings like urls and workspace Id – something failed there – these are just calls to SCOM SDK, so the underlying issue could be in the SCOM management system / database (maybe load related).

    The best first step to take for this investigation is to enable VERBOSE tracing to see what precisely fails – refer to the tracing article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/942864 (you might need to involve formal support channel to decipher this).

  18. Upgrade the version of the ruby bundled with the Linux oms agent

    A lot of FluentD plugins depend on the activesupport gem, which in turn depends on a Ruby version >= 2.2.2. This Ruby version in particular solves a nasty security bug related to SSL.

    The OMS agent bundles a Ruby interpreter version prior to 2.2.2, which prevents us from using a lot of useful fluentd plugins.

    You have a few options today:

    - startup scripts from GPO’s would be the most generic way to install and configure the agent. Command line to silent install as well as script snippets on how to enable/disable/configure thru COM API are documented here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/operational-insights-direct-agent/

    - Powershell magazine came up with a DSC module that allows you to install the agent that way http://www.powershellmagazine.com/2014/11/26/dsc-resource-module-for-microsoft-monitoring-agent-install-and-configuration-for-azure-operational-insights/

    - if the machines are in Azure, there is a VM extension http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/easily-enable-operational-insights-for-azure-virtual-machines/
