A chain is only as strong as its weakest link – DNS Hijack Monitoring

It doesn’t really matter how much time your developers have spent writing secure code and how many layers of security you have implemented to protect your website from being hacked and defaced.  Recent incidents have demonstrated that the bad guys will simply look for and find an easier way to hurt your business.  Instead of […]

Fixing Exchange 2007 Offline Address Book generation (oalgen) and distribution issues

Today, I’m going to share some ‘notes from the field’ about fixing oab issues in Exchange 2007 In order to fully understand the oab generation and distribution process, I will assume that you are running the Mailbox server role and HUB/CAS server roles on different servers. Of course, this is not a requirement to run […]

Monitoring your network with Powershell

I have written a small powershell script that will help you to monitor various hosts on your network.   Instead of using ping to see if a host is alive, this script will connect to tcp ports, so you can also monitor hosts behind firewalls (or hosts that cannot be pinged).  In addition to this, you […]

Assuming that you may have some modems that get turned on when someone needs to dial in (for whatever reason), and *should* be disconnected afterwards. So you would […]

Monitoring Robocopy logfiles with Operations Manager 2007 (vbscript monitor)

One of the reasons why the company I work at has taken the decision to implement Operations Manager is because the daily task to go through a pile of interfacing and backup log files became too time consuming and demotivating for the people involved. Armed with Operations Manager and a basic vbscript, I have set […]

As far as I know, there are no free Management Packs available for monitoring Juniper/Netscreen firewalls with Operations Manager 2007. Catching snmp traps and syslog events seems to be the only "easy"/free way to monitor what is going on on your Juniper devices. The following steps will need to be taken : Prepare the OS […]
