Moving Update Worker Server between OMS Workspaces

Recently I’ve been fairly occupied in writing the second edition of Inside Microsoft Operations Management Suite book but now that I’ve finished my chapters I can go back to writing some blog posts.

Update Workers are like Hybrid Workers but they are automatically registered by the Update Management solution. This creates a problem because there is no way to unregister such server unlike the Hybrid Workers which have PowerShell cmdlets installed locally on the server.

AS Microsoft published more information on the Operations Management Suite API I’ve decided to take a look update the OMSSearch PowerShell module. I’ve added –Start, –End and –Top parameters to Execute-OMSSearchQuery so you can make more granular searches. Also Stefan Stranger helped by adding Get-OMSWorkspace cmdlet. You will find all information and new version on Github.

Programmatically Search Operations Management Suite

At Ignite Jo Chan showed us how we can now execute Search queries trough Operations Management Suite API which is basically Azure Resource Manager API. He demonstrated that with a tool called ARMClient. That tool seems nice but I wanted to get results with PowerShell as it is more familiar to me.
