Introducing Thing 1 and Thing 2




My blog has been silent for a bit lately.  This is because of the birth of my first children.  SCOM world - Meet Logan and Lexi Holman.  I’ll be taking some time off work to spend with them during the next few weeks as well.

Logan has already been discussing a management pack to monitor his diaper status, Lexi is gathering the requirements and having the necessary customer meetings.  We aren't in full agreement yet on what constitutes warning versus critical, so I‘ll keep you up to date on the status.  Smile

  8. Sorry, just adding that I love the blogs that show a little humanness (two in this case) rather than only being a solid wall of technical goodness. Thanks for making me smile during my research!
