I’ve recently been playing with some solution development and I’ve noticed something interesting.
When we are using the OMS Data Collector API we send data by creating json file. That json file is in simple format like this:
In this pseudo code property is the name of our fields. So when the data is uploaded to OMS the name for field property1 will turn to property1_s. Basically OMS adds suffix to the name of each field and this suffix represents the data type of the value for the field.
There are some exception though. For example if our property is called Computer that will not turn into Computer_s in Log Analytics. Basically the Computer field is a special one. Turned out there are more such fields actually and they are called Reserved Common Fields.

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.

For the past couple of months I’ve been a little bit quiet on my blog. The reason for this is that I was participating in something special for you. Continue reading “Free E-book: Inside the Microsoft Operations Management Suite”
Microsoft has a service that allows you to create Windows 10 apps called Windows App Studio. Recently that service enabled easier creation of Windows 10 app with WordPress content. This allowed me to create Windows 10 universal app of my blog. It is simple app that makes viewing the content of the blog post easier on smaller devices. If you want to use it the app is located in Windows Store and can be found by clicking on this link.
Like a Christmas present OMS team gave us a new solution yesterday. As the name suggest the solution aims to give you visibility over the replication of your domain controllers. To get some results you will need at least two domain controllers located in different AD sites. I believe the solution works with any domain controller that is on a supported by OMS Windows operating system. Continue reading “AD Replication Status Solution in Operations Management Suite”
