Setting up OMS Service Map solution


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 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


Click on Service Map pane

Click on Download Agent link as appropriate for Windows or Linux

Save file and install on your server(s)



Windows Server Installation

Execute the MSI file downloaded from OMS (NOTE may prompt with UAC prompt)

Click 'I Agree'


Watch the Install


Click Finish


Now go back to OMS and look for updates (mine was that fast!)


Click on the Service Map pane to see more detail


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.
