Break – Light Humour
  • After the North American Beer Festival, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer. The guy from Corona sits down and says, "Hey Senor, would like the world's best beer, a Corona." The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him.
  • The guy from Budweiser says, "I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser." The bartender gives him one.
  • The guy from Coors says, "I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors." He gets it.
  • The guy from Molson sits down and says,
  • "Give me a Coke." The bartender is a little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered.
  • The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, "Why aren't you drinking a Molson's?"
  • The Molson president replies, "Well, I figured if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither would I."

challenges
Challenges
  • BizTalk Developers don’t understand SCOM and SCOM administrators don’t understand BizTalk
  • Email Overload
    • Tune SCOM, don’t create Outlook Rules
  • Issues
    • Clustered Host Instances (BizTalk 2006/2009)
    • Disabled Host Instances
  • Using SCOM Alerts for Business Purposes
    • ESB Exception Management Portal is a better option
  • Planned Maintenance
    • Use Maintenance Mode
  • Operations Team not resolving Alerts
    • Don’t rely strictly on email, use the Console
    • Gaps between BizTalk Admin Console and SCOM Console
lessons learned
Lessons Learned
  • Commitment to the SCOM platform and process is required in order to be successful
  • Tune, tune and re-tune your solutions until you have right level of notifications
  • Leverage the Management console to build your Knowledge base and resolution of alerts.
  • Leverage Maintenance Mode during planned outages to prevent unnecessary alerts during planned outages.
