OpsMgr 2007: ModuleExplorer v1 and Run As profile configuration helper v1


Source:  Boris Yanushpolsky

Again has Boris developed a new tool for OpsMgr 2007. Maybe it's time to install Visual Studio and also try to create a new tool for OpsMgr 😉

He wrote a small utility to provide some visibility into the library of modules and information about each module. The utility shows a tree of modules. At the top of the tree are the code based modules and the child nodes are the modules that use these code based modules.

This is the first version of the utility so it might not answer all the questions that one might have. He would really appreciate feedback as to how he can make this tool more useful.

Update. Boris also published another new tool Run As profile configuration helper v1.

"When you deploy a management pack and the action account is configured as a low priv account, some workflows (monitors/rules/discoveries/tasks/diagnostics/recoveries) may not be able to execute because by default they will run under the low priv account and may not have sufficient rights to access the instrumentation they need in order to function properly. The solution for this problem is for the MP author to use a RunAs profile. This allows the customer which is deploying the management pack to specify a particular account which will be used to execute the set of workflows that are configured to use the RunAs profile. One of the difficulties today is that when you configure a RunAs profile in the UI, you can only configure it for one agent at a time. We have posted several powershell scripts to allow doing this in bulk. To simplify things a bit more, I wrote a small utility that will allow you to configure a RunAs profile for agents in bulk.In order to configure a RunAs profile, you need to right click on it on the left hand side on the RunAs profile that you wish to configure, and click on the "Add Computer(s)" menu item. In order to remove computers from a RunAs profile, you need to multi-select the computers in the right hand side, right click and select the "Remove Computer(s)" menu item.

This is the first version of the utility. I would really appreciate feedback as to how I can make this utility more useful."
