Golden Oldies - always popular (tools vs music)
Basically anyone who wants to test fire events off a SCOM MP should use this tool.
Event Create, write-eventlog all have limitations (certain event sources that can be used to create events, or event ID number limitations)
First, download the 2007 R2 Admin ResKit here
MomTeam blog reference
Double click the downloaded MSI
I prefer to move extracted files under my SCOM tools/Management pack directory structure under MonAdmin (Monitoring Admin)
Copy extracted files to gold depot
Move to gold depot - SCOM \ tools \ <toolname here>
Go into the MPEventAnalyzer directory
Run the exe
MP Event Analyzer
Click on Investigate Event Sources Tab (bottom middle)
Don't forget you can use the search bar (where I typed apm)
For my example, double click on APM Agent
Search Events on right hand pane
Check checkbox to select the 1319 APM event for configuration error (right hand pane)
Click the 'Add selected events to execution list'
Once event verified in bottom box, click the green box to fire selected event(s)
Verify event in Event Viewer
Validate Management Pack
Stay tuned... this did not complete the validation process.
