Been messing the last few days with a combination of t-sql and Word macros to create a way of documenting the policies and rules for Altiris Monitor 7.1 servers.

All pretty much done, so am writing up for CONNECT.

Here's a taster graphic though of the end-result which was created by,

  1. Running some SQL
  2. Pasting the results into Excel
  3. Copy/Pasting table from Excel into Word
  4. Clicking on a Macro button
  5. Selecting a table layout and adjusting columns

All in all a couple minutes work! The symbols you see are shorthands for severity, agentbased/agentless, repeats and alert reset method.

I came across a stored procedure that is quite popular for troubleshooting SQL especially blocking, it's not new but deserves a repost. I tried it against sp_who and sp_who2. It seems that this SP gives a more instant snapshot in better detail. Probably it's best feature is a clickable link to the transact that is running. I could still see block chains better with sp_who2, as you could see the trail of SPID's better. There is a SQL query for finding the lead blocker at http://sqlserverplanet.com/troubleshooting/blocking-processes-lead-blocker

For those that are interested in what the differences are between sp_who and sp_who2, the screen snip below shows the column differences, the hidden difference is that sp_who is documented and thus supported, otherwise they are very similar. SP_WhoIsActive complements them.

Travelport needed to improve visibility into its environment. Prior to implementing Altiris, IT could see how many endpoints were on the network, but had now way to really manage each individual system from a single location. To address this problem, Travelport implemented Altiris IT Management Suite (ITMS), which allows Travelport to have a single view into its environment and makes it possible to manage each individual system centrally. To learn more about how Travelport is using Altiris ITMS, including Altiris Client Management Suite, Server Management Suite, Asset Management Suite, and Symantec Workflow check out this video: http://bit.ly/YRctqu

Getting the right endpoint management solution in place is analogous to architecting and erecting a building. So where do you start?
