  1. I am still looking how I can group a text object with a shape in Inkscape. But there is a Inkscape for Adobe Illustrator Users Appendix in the Inkscape User Manual.

    http://www.angelfire.com/mi/kevincharles/inkscape/pa-illustrator.html

    Still working on how and if Inkscape can be used for creating svg images to use in PowerGadgets...

  2. Hi Ivan,

    If I already created an new object in my script.

    ====

    $record = new-object -typename system.object

    $record | add-member -membertype noteproperty -name count -value 0

    [void]$foreach.movenext()

    $record | add-member -membertype noteproperty -name name -value $level

    $listing+=$record

    =====

    And also create a new object for the current date. Like:

    =====

    $datetime = get-date

    $obj = new-object System.object

    add-member -inputobject $obj -membertype NoteProperty -Name DateTime -value $datetime

    =====

    How do I get the right result in the Chart PowerGadget? Do I need to use the -dataobject property?

    | out-chart -datasourcesettings_style +Transpose -series_0_color Red

    -series_1_color Blue -series_2_color Yellow -titles_0_Text "OpsMgr 2007 Alerts" -titles_1_Text {$_.DateTime} -refresh 0:0:5

  3. Marco, This is what I got when I tried your suggestion.

    Result:

  4. Hi Juan,

    I tried to implement choice B) but it's more difficult than I thought [:@] 

     

    # Count the number of Alerts per Severity and refreshes every minute#$getAlerts = get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq "0"} | group-object severity | sort-object name | select Name, Count$getAlerts = get-alert | group-object severity | sort-object name | select Name, Count# For the GetColor function to work the result must always return 3 items (Error, Warning and Information)$color = @{"Error"="0"; "Warning"="0"; "Information"="0"}$n=0

    foreach ($i in $getAlerts) #(Error, Information, Warning)  { if ($getAlerts[$n].Name -eq 'Error')  { Write-host "Error exists" $n = $n + 1  } else  { Write-host "Error does not exists"  }

    if ($getAlerts[$n].Name -eq 'Information')  { Write-host "Information exists" $n = $n + 1  } else    { Write-host "Information does not exists"  } if ($getAlerts[$n].Name -eq 'Warning')  { Write-host "Warning does exists" $n = $n + 1 } else    { Write-host "Warning does not exists"  }   if ($n -le "3")  { #Write-host "test" $n = $n + 1  }  } 

    But this does not do the job. Output.

    PS D:\Scripts> .\PromptOpsMgrAlerts2.ps1Please enter your Root OpsMgr Server name: 192.168.0.3 Please enter your domain\username account for accessing the Root OpsMgr Server: opsmgr2007demo\administrator Error exists Information exists Warning does exists Error does not exists Information does not exists Warning does not exists Error does not exists Information does not exists Warning does not existsPS Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client\OperationsManagerMonitoring::192.168.0.3>

    Better ideas?

  5. Juan,

    I tried to use your getColor function but I've trouble getting it to work. This is what I did. (I added some debugging info)

    PromptOpsMgrAlertsChart2.ps1:
    ====================
    param ([string]$serverName = $(read-host "Please enter your Root OpsMgr Server name"), [string]$account = $(read-host "Please enter your domain\username

    account for accessing the Root OpsMgr Server"))

    if (get-pssnapin | where {$_.Name -eq "PowerGadgets"})
     {}

    else
     {add-pssnapin "PowerGadgets"}

    function getColor
    {
      if ($args[0] -eq 'Error') {
      return 'Red'
      Write-host $args[0]
      }
     Write-host "Not Red"
      if ($args[0] -eq 'Warning') {
      return 'Yellow'
      }
     Write-host "Not Yellow"
      if ($args[0] -eq 'Information') {
      return 'Green'
    }

      return 'Black'
    }


    $items = d:\scripts\PromptOpsMgrAlerts.ps1 -serverName $serverName -account $account
    $clr0 = getColor $items[0].Name
    Write-host "clr0" $clr0
    $clr1 = getColor $items[1].Name
    $clr2 = getColor $items[2].Name


    $items | out-chart -allseries_multiplecolors true -points_0_color $clr0 -points_1_color $clr1 -points_2_color $clr2 -Title "OpsMgr 2007 Alerts" -refresh 0:1:0
    ==========================

    First I got the next error:

  6. Juan,

    You are a hero! [Y]Thanks with all the help you gave! I've learned a lot thanks to all your great help.

    The refresh is now working. For all those interested here are the scripts:

    PromptOpsMgrAlertsChart.ps1:
    ========================
    param ([string]$serverName = $(read-host "Please enter your Root OpsMgr Server name"), [string]$account = $(read-host "Please enter your domain\username account for accessing the Root OpsMgr Server"))

    if (get-pssnapin | where {$_.Name -eq "PowerGadgets"})
     {}

    else
     {add-pssnapin "PowerGadgets"}

    # Add OpsMgr Cmdlets
    if (get-pssnapin | where {$_.Name -eq "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client"})
     {}

    else
     {add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client"}

    set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::";

    # Connect to Root Management Server.
    $obj = new-managementGroupConnection -ConnectionString:$serverName -Credential (get-credential $account);

    set-location $serverName;

    # Count the number of Alerts per Severity and refreshes every minute
    get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq "0"} | group-object severity | sort-object name | select Count, Name
    ================================

    I'll publish an article on my weblog explaining all the steps in getting this PowerGadget running.

  7. Hi Juan,

    Yes it's possible that there are no alerts but that's not the case now [B)]

    Here is the output from the PromptOpsMgrAlerts.ps1

    This is exactly the same result as running my first script (OpsMgr2007_SidebarGadget.ps1) that did work. But not if I added the refresh option.

  8. Hi Juan, I'm getting there, but now I get no data available [B)]. This is what I've done.

    1. Separated the script (as suggested in your post) into to parts.
    2. Used arguments for servername and username.

    Script PromptOpsMgrAlertsChart.ps1:

    ===================================================
    param ([string]$serverName = $(read-host "Please enter your Root OpsMgr Server name"), [string]$account = $(read-host "Please enter your domain\username account for accessing the Root OpsMgr Server"))

    if (get-pssnapin | where {$_.Name -eq "PowerGadgets"})
     {}

    else
     {add-pssnapin "PowerGadgets"}

    d:\scripts\PromptOpsMgrAlerts.ps1 -serverName $serverName -account $account | out-chart -datasourcesettings_style +Transpose -series_0_color Red -series_1_color Blue -series_2_color Yellow -Title "OpsMgr 2007 Alerts"
    ====================================================

    And PromptOpsMgrAlerts.ps1:

    ====================================================
    # Description:  OpsMgr 2007 Sidebar Gadget for Remotely Retrieve OpsMgr Alerts
    # Date: 20-02-2007
    # Author: Stefan Stranger
    # Explanation: You can use this PowerShell script for creating a PowerGadget OpsMgr 2007 Sidebar Gadget for Vista

    param ([string]$serverName = $(read-host "Please enter your Root OpsMgr Server name"), [string]$account = $(read-host "Please enter your domain\username account for accessing the Root OpsMgr Server"))

    # Add OpsMgr Cmdlets
    if (get-pssnapin | where {$_.Name -eq "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client"})
     {}

    else
     {add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client"}

    set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::";

    # Connect to Root Management Server.
    new-managementGroupConnection -ConnectionString:$serverName -Credential (get-credential $account);

    set-location $serverName;

    # Count the number of Alerts per Severity and refreshes every minute
    get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq "0"} | group-object severity | sort-object name | select Count, Name
    ====================================================

    If I run the OpsMgrAlertsChart.ps1, I'm asked for the servername and accountname. But the result is an "no data available" PowerGadget. But the refresh option seems to work. Because when I manually refresh (the no data available) PowerGadget I'm prompted again (as supposed) for the servername and username. And when refreshing again I'm not prompted for those. So that's a step in the right direction[B)]. But now I've to solve the "no data available" issue.

    I tried to change the out-chart pipe to a simple "out-chart" but that resulted in the same "no data available"

    Do I've to use the dataobject property? And how do I use that, because that's not completely clear to me.

    Any ideas?

  9. I've created the next script. It works but haven't tested it to pipe it to out-chart. Let you know.

  10. Or is there an issue with the refresh? According to info on the forum about refresh (http://community.softwarefx.com/forums/t/9227.aspx) which states that there are issues with variables. There are some subtleties on what type of variables we support but in the simple case it will just work.

    But I don't use any variables on the commandline which calls the out-chart from PowerGadgets. And if I understand the refresh option correctly refresh will execute the entire PowerShell command pipe. In my case:
    "get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq "0"} | group-object severity | sort-object name | select Count, Name | out-chart -refresh 0:1:0 -datasourcesettings_style +Transpose -series_0_color Red -series_1_color Blue -series_2_color Yellow -Title "OpsMgr 2007 Alerts""

    Am I correct? So what can be the problem?

  11. I'm using PowerGadgets right from the version I got on TechEd-IT forum and I think it's a great product. But besides that it can be used in the Enterprise also some home users will appreciate PowerGadgets. But there is no version for the home-user is there? The only version a home-user can use is the PowerGadgets Creator which costs $299. Can there not be a home-users edition for PowerGadgets?

  12. Juan,

    Thanks for your help with the out-chart problem I had. It's working almost the way I want except for the refresh option. This is the script I've written in PowerShell to create the PowerGadget.

    ====================================

    # Description:  OpsMgr 2007 Sidebar Gadget for Remotely Retrieve OpsMgr Alerts
    # Date: 20-02-2007
    # Author: Stefan Stranger
    # Explanation: You can use this PowerShell script for creating a PowerGadget OpsMgr 2007 Sidebar Gadget for Vista


    param ([string]$serverName = $(read-host "Please enter your Root OpsMgr Server name"), [string]$cred = $(read-host "Please enter your domain\username account for accessing the Root OpsMgr Server"))

    # Add OpsMgr and PowerGadgets Cmdlets
    add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client";
    add-pssnapin "PowerGadgets";

    set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::";

    # Connect to Root Management Server.
    new-managementGroupConnection -ConnectionString:$serverName -Credential (get-credential $cred);

    set-location $serverName;

    # Count the number of Alerts per Severity and refresh every minute
    get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq "0"} | group-object severity | sort-object name | select Count, Name | out-chart -refresh 0:1:0 -datasourcesettings_style +Transpose -series_0_color Red -series_1_color Blue -series_2_color Yellow -Title "OpsMgr 2007 Alerts"

    ==================================

    At first I get the chart I want, but after a minute I get an error "Failed to connect to Data"

    Does the refresh option means that the whole script is executed again? If so there is already an connection with the remote datasource and should this be disconnected? But I don't want to supply the credentials every 1 minute. Any ideas

    I also looked at the Get-Credential thread in the discussion forum. http://community.softwarefx.com/forums/t/9056.aspx. But I'm not sure if this is the issue I've.

  13. Juan,

    Thanks your help. I solved the order of my data by sorting it by object name. If I'm correct than the first item will be Error, the next Information and the last Warning. Correct?

    get-alert | where {$_.ResolutionState -eq "0"}  |  group-object severity | sort-object name | select Count, Name | out-chart -datasourcesettings_style
     +Transpose -series_0_color Red -series_1_color Blue -series_2_color Yellow
