Get Started with Microsoft #MSOMS Service Map to get in Control #HybridCloud #Winserv #Linux

oms-servicemap-overview

Microsoft OMS Service Map

Service Map automatically discovers application components on Windows and Linux systems and maps the communication between services. It allows you to view your servers as you think of them – as interconnected systems that deliver critical services. Service Map shows connections between servers, processes, and ports across any TCP-connected architecture with no configuration required other than installation of an agent.

If you are new with Microsoft Operations Management Suite, you can download here a Free OMS Subscription Plan to try it your Self

Hybrid IT Connect computers and devices to #MSOMS using the OMS Gateway #Winserv #Linux

oms-agents

Instead of each individual agent sending data directly to OMS and requiring a direct Internet connection, all agent data is instead sent through a single computer that has an Internet connection. That computer is where you install and use the gateway. In this scenario, you can install agents on any computers where you want to collect data. The gateway then transfers data from the agents to OMS directly.

Here you can start with downloading the software for Microsoft OMS Gateway

oms-gateway-installer

oms-gateway-install-1

oms-gateway-install-2

oms-gateway-install-3

I used the default port 8080 for the Gateway.

oms-gateway-install-4

oms-gateway-install-5

oms-gateway-install-6

Now the Microsoft OMS Gateway Services is installedoms-gateway-running

Now Microsoft Operations Management Suite Gateway is installed, you can use some Microsoft Powershell Commands :

oms-gateway-powershell-1

oms-gateway-powershell-3

After the installation of the OMS Gateway, I installed the OMS Agent :

oms-connection

Download your OMS Agent here

oms-agent-1

oms-agent-2

oms-agent-3

oms-agent-4

oms-agent-5

Copy => Paste your OMS Workspace ID and Key.

oms-agent-6a

oms-agent-7

oms-agent-8

oms-agent-control

Here you can see the OMS Agent Connection settings.

oms-agent-9

When you wait for a few minutes you will see the connection in the Portal of OMS.

oms-connection

After this I installed the OMS Agent on One of my Domain Controllers with OMS Gateway settings //HyperV2016.hybridcloud4you.nl:8080.

This is what you will see in the Event Viewer of the OMS Gateway Server :

oms-gateway-events-next

Domain Controller 192.168.2.100 is going via the OMS Gateway

oms-agents-in-the-portal

OMS Agent via the Microsoft OMS Gateway

oms-portal

From here you can start with your OMS Solutions 😉

It is also possible to connect your System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) on-premises to the OMS Gateway.
Then you don’t have to connect your SCOM Management Server directly to the internet to OMS.
