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
Service Map is very easy to add and get value from right away with OMS
You have two choices:
- Choose from Docs.Microsoft.com documentation above, or from your OMS environment
- 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
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.
