Community Strength: 1 plus 1 is sometimes 3 or more…

About 18 months ago Tim Helton introduced the Green Machine, a command line tool for resetting the health of all monitors for a single agent or all agents. This tool got some revisions and in April 2010 version 1.04 was introduced, based on input from the community, among them PFE’s. This version is fully SCOM R2 compatible.

Cameron Fuller has taken this to the next level: now the functionality of this tool is integrated into the SCOM (R2) Console as a Task. Cameron and I run a company known as Crappy MP Inc. Cameron takes care of the American continent and I cover the European part of it all. To use Cameron’s own words, ‘…this is not a pretty management pack however it is a functional management pack…’.

Thanks Cameron for sharing. Perhaps we should talk about licensing MPs like these?
