From Dev to Prod System - Views and Overrides break RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've create a new management pack in our DEV system, exported it, sealed it and imported it into our PROD system.

    I figured out that Views do not work. - The related Rule which is the criteria for the rule is only shown as a GUID, not as the rule I created for it.

    Also Overrides for a specific group don't work. - Also here there is a GUID shown.

    Your advice is appreciated :D

    Thanks

  • Hi

    I'd suggest using Visual Studio and VSAE for authoring if you can. This way you can create your code in one location using user friendly names store it centrally either in Visual Studio  Online or TFS (on premise if you have it).

    This also means you push the same code to each environment, already sealed. E.g.

    1. Create MP

    2. Seal and Push to Dev for testing

    3. Test and redo step 2 until happy

    4. Seal and Push to Production.

    This way there are is no environment specific monitoring at all.

    I'm going to look to do an authoring series on

  • Which target does the Rule have?

    Are there any errors in the event log?

  • Hi,

    target of the rule is 'Mailbox', a predefined class of the Exchange 2010 MP. I'm collecting a couple of events matching a specific criteria.

    Inside the 'View' I set the criteria as: View all events: generated by "name-of-my-rule".

    I opened the MP with the MPViewer and I think I see the problem.
    Inside of the View definition part is shows:
    <Criteria>
    <RuleLlist>0fefaed8-... </RuleList>
    </Criteria>

    The rule definitions shows:
    <Rule ID="MomUIGeneratedRule..." > ... </Rule>

    So both ID's don't match.

    Any solution to change this behavior or do I need to use VSAE for simple works as well? :)

    Thanks
