Using SharePoint On Premise Diagnostic tool


 

Futuristic, perhaps, but a powered screwdriver for space, almost looks like Han Solo's pistol (sans scope)

 

 

From previous intro, we start using the tool to diagnose SharePoint problems.

 

Let's install, and get to using it!

 

Once this is released, I expect this to be posted to a GitHub repository.

For now, there will be some mystery for obtaining the file bundle.

 

Copy folder from build zip file.

 

Paste to SharePoint machine, whatever standard you use.

From my own past, I prefer a MonAdmin (Monitoring Admin) directory, with a scripts sub-directory, then toolname/version

Example

cd 'C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001'

 

 

Start OPD via powershell

cd 'C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001'

.\OPD-console.ps1

 

Avoid some initial questions

cd 'C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001'

.\OPD-console.ps1 -mode SharePoint -ShareTelemetry Yes -AcceptEula

 

PS C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001> .\OPD-console.ps1 -mode SharePoint -ShareTelemetry Yes -AcceptEula

Happy checking and to building new SharePoint checks!
