Setting up OMS Service Map solution


hmmmm

Ever wonder what happened to BlueStripe?

Anyone else have experience using it with SCOM?

If you weren’t aware, Microsoft bought Blue Stripe back in 2015 link

 

Looks like BlueStripe FactFinder is now Service Map in Azure

Documentation here

 

Service Map is very easy to add and get value from right away with OMS

Download agent

You have two choices:

  1. Choose from Docs.Microsoft.com documentation above, or from your OMS environmentdocsagentdownload
  2. From your OMS workspace, add the Service Map solution

Click on Home icon in top left hand corner

To add additional machines is basically the same, just choose add machines

In case you caught that I have two (2) of the same named machines, it’s because I have that server set up for OMS separately.  Yes, it’s my lab, so I’m not following the best practice.
