Simple AMT WS-Eventing in PowerShell with the High Level API

first_imgNow when I hit the “Get Technical Help” button or hit the appropriate key sequence during the boot process, I can trap that event on my server: Since we subscribed to All Events, it will also trap other event alerts. For example I pulled the battery out of my local machine: Recently I started working with AMT and WS-Eventing and wanted to share a few things I learned along the way. I found the quickest and easiest way to get started was to download the AMT SDK / High Level API (HLAPI) (link) and start digging into the samples there.  It was pretty straight forward to get the samples working and I was actually able to create a subscription to an event and trap the alerts on my SCS server! Great! After that bit of success I wanted to see if I could replicate the functionality in PowerShell.First off, I needed to load the High Level API assemblies in PowerShell:n[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom(‘C:HLAPIHLAPI.dll’)n[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom(‘C:HLAPIIWSManClient.dll’)nnnAs you can see all you need to do is load the HLAPI.DLL and the IWSManClient.DLL. Once loaded we can create a connection to our AMT client and create a subscription to some events.Next we just need to create a connection to the AMT client. For my test I just used my local machine, digest user and non-TLS:n$auth = [Intel.Manageability.ConnectionInfoEX+AuthMethod]::Digest n$cs = New-Object Intel.Manageability.ConnectionInfoEX(“localhost”,”admin”,”P@ssw0rd”,$False,””,$auth,$null,$null, $null)n$amt = [Intel.Manageability.AMTInstanceFactory]::CreateEX($cs)nnnnWe also need to indicate where the “Listener” will be located:n$lstn = “http://192.168.1.10:999″nnnnWe also need to choose what Event filter we want to subscribe to. You can find a list of them and what events they cover at this LinkFor my simple demo, I just used the “All Events” filter, basically telling AMT to send me an alert for any event.n$wsfilter = [Intel.Manageability.Events.FilterName]::AllnnnnNext we need to indicate the SenderIDType and where you want to place that SenderID. You can read more about this in the HLAPI/SDK documentation here, but your choices here are: CurrentAddress, FQDN, NONE or UUID.n$sidtype = [Intel.Manageability.Events.SenderIDType]::FQDNn$sip = [Intel.Manageability.Events.SenderIDPlacing]::ReferenceParameternnnnNow we can pull it all together into a “subscription”:n$sub = New-Object Intel.Manageability.Events.Subscription($lstn,$wsfilter,$sidtype)nnnnNow that we have the subscription defined, we can use the connection to our AMT device to apply it:n$amt.Events.WSEvents.Subscribe($sub)nnnnNow we have a subscription created on our local host that will generate a WSEvent when our filter criteria are met!I went ahead and modified this a bit and wrapped a GUI around it: There are plenty of options when it comes to creating subscriptions / subscribing to events, be sure to check out the SDK/HLAPI documentation online for more information: Link It works great on the command line, but sometimes it’s nice to have that GUI experience as well.So now we are generating alerts off of AMT events, but how can we “Trap” them?Let’s create a simple PowerShell / HLAPI based WSevent Trap / Decoder:It starts out similar to that of the subscriber script, you have to load the HLAPI assemblies:n[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom(‘C:HLAPIHLAPI.dll’)n[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFrom(‘C:HLAPIIWSManClient.dll’)nnnnNext we just need to create a WSEventListener on our “Listening Server” indicating which IPAddress and Port I want to listen on:n$listener = New-Object HLAPI.Services.WSEventListener([IPAddress]::Any,’999′)nnnnNow we need to register an Object Event that will fire when we receive an alert:nRegister-ObjectEvent $listener OnNewEventArrived -SourceIdentifier $listener.OnNewEventArrived  -Action {write-host “”; write-host “Address: “$Event.SourceEventArgs.Sender ;    write-host “Alert Type: “$Event.SourceEventArgs.EventData.AlertType ;    write-host “Filter Name: “$Event.SourceEventArgs.EventData.IndicationFilterName ;    write-host “Indication Time: “$Event.SourceEventArgs.EventData.IndicationTime ;    write-host “Message: “$Event.SourceEventArgs.EventData.MessageDescription ;  }nnnnHere you can see that when the listener receives data, it fires off an Action. In our case it’s going to write out to the screen some information about the event such as the Alert Type, Filter Name, Indication Time and the Message of the event.Once we have our listener created, we can start the listener on our server:n$listener.StartListening()nnnnNow I have my AMT client ready to send out alerts based on events and we have our listener ready to trap them.In my demo I used the Get Technical Help icon in the Intel Management and Security Status Icon:last_img read more

PSG director hails Neymar as world’s best player

He’s already sent many messages of encouragement.”Henrique has explained that the injury the forward has sustained is not a severe one, but that its timing is unfortunate.”It’s not a nightmare,” he said. “It’s a classic football injury, he can run.”It just comes at the wrong time, before this crucial meeting with Real. We’d prefer to play with the best player in the world than without him – that makes sense.”Neymar is the leader of the team, but his team-mates will give everything for him and the club.”last_img read more

Italy just a stop on road to Kiev for Madrid & Barca

first_imgUEFA Champions League Italy just a stop on road to Kiev for Madrid & Barca Ben Hayward Last updated 1 year ago 20:47 16/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(26) Cristiano Ronaldo Mario Mandzukic Juventus Real Madrid UCL 03062017 Getty UEFA Champions League Real Madrid Barcelona Opinion The two Clasico rivals were kept apart in Friday’s draw and will be expected to advance to the last four after the two were paired with Serie A sides The road to Kiev passes through Italy for Real Madrid and Barcelona. The two Spanish sides have won the Champions League three times apiece since 2009 and both will be considered favourites to advance to the semi-finals this time around after drawing Juventus and Roma, respectively.Real are 12-time European champions and have claimed the famous trophy in three of the last four years, including back-to-back successes under Zinedine Zidane over the past two seasons.Barca, meanwhile, have won the competition on five occasions and last lifted the coveted cup when they completed a treble in 2015, having also achieved a triple triumph in 2009 and then followed up with another victory in 2011.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Both of the Clasico rivals were handed tough draws in the last 16. Real, having finished second in their group, were paired with Paris Saint-Germain, while Barca faced Chelsea. In the end, however, the two teams prevailed with relative ease.On Friday, Real were drawn against Juventus in a repeat of last season’s final (which Los Blancos won 4-1 in Cardiff), while Barca face Roma for a place in the Champions League semi-finals. Both sides will be happy with the lot.Juventus, in theory, is a tough draw for Real. The Italian champions are one of Europe’s great teams, but this is an Old Lady that really is getting on, an ageing team that somehow found a way past Tottenham in the second round despite only being the better team for around 20 minutes of the entire tie.”Honestly, I feel Tottenham were superior for much of the tie,” Real legend Emilio Butragueno said after the draw. “But Juve showed their character to qualify. That says a lot about the winning mentality they have, like ours.”It did. Juve found a way to win, just like Madrid. And although historically Real have had difficulty against the Italian giants in the European Cup, Zidane’s side would appear to be in better shape following their recent return to form.CLQFGFX“Real are concentrating on the Champions League,” former Juve midfielder Pavel Nedved said. “We will have more difficulty in that we are fighting on three fronts. It will be very tough but we’re ready to face this part of the season.”Meanwhile, Barca probably have the best draw of all in Roma. The Italian side edged out Shakhtar Donetsk in the last 16 and are way off the pace in Serie A title race this season, so even reaching this stage is a bonus.”We will face the best team in Europe,” Roma legend Francesco Totti said. “Barcelona will also be concerned at facing us. Roma has a very important and tough task ahead.”Perhaps. But it could have been much worse for both Barca and Real. The Primera Division pair managed to avoid Manchster City, Bayern Munich and Liverpool in Friday’s draw, while neither really wanted an all-Spanish tie against Sevilla.So, Italy should really be just another stop for the two Liga clubs on the road to Kiev and perhaps, a first Champions League Clasico since 2011.last_img read more

He also talks a great deal about leadership.“This culture here, this environment that is surrounded just off of this university, fits me perfectly,” Sanders said. “Coming here and learning from these coaching staffs and just listening to all these motivational speeches, I’ve learned that everything I thought I couldn’t do or the things that I let stop me is just a mental fear.“I have to be the best leader that I can be for this team because if I’m slacking in my role, I could give a chain reaction to slack somewhere else. I don’t want to be that type of influence on anybody on this team. I want to be known for a great leader, and I want my teammates to come to me for anything that they want to talk about. And I’ll always be there for them.”Sanders also brought up the fact that he didn’t see the field at all in 2018, despite being such a highly touted recruit.“I know a lot of people wanted me to play last year, and I thank them for that, but I feel like last year really helped me grow as a person,” Sanders said. “To show me that there is more to football than just football. It helped me become a leader and a better person for my family and the people around me.”last_img read more

Mike Gundy on How Coaching is Like Parenting

first_imgOne of my favorite things to do every week is to peruse Mike Gundy’s Monday presser quotes to see what kind of gems got buried in the avalanche of Spencer Sanders and Chuba Hubbard news.Because Gundy is a character — for which I am (and this business is) grateful — some of the throwaway quotes take on a more hilarious tone. There’s more weight and more humor there because Gundy has been around so long and because we feel like we know him or at the very least we know the caricature of him.One example of this is when he goes down the parental advice path. Part of the reason for this is because, well, I’m a parent. The other is because it’s always enjoyable to think about this mulleted man who once wore zip-away ski pants to coach Bedlam in (#neverforget) parenting three kids of his own in a home I’m sure he often feels like he’s lost control of.Anyway, he talked this week about how Sean Gleeson is acclimating to FBS ball and how that’s actually a lot like being a parent for the first time.“I thought he was good,” Gundy said.Sean, your thoughts?“There’s a difference between being emotional and being erratically emotional and out of control. He gets emotional during football games. It’s like parenting.”Go on.“When you’re raising your first kid, you get emotional when they do things wrong and you overreact. Then you come back later and you’re like, ‘That wasn’t worth all that.’”This is quite true.“You’re better off just chilling and then teaching them after a while. Coaching is the same thing. Sean gets excited but then he can get right back into it and focus; some coaches go and lose their marbles, but he doesn’t.”I loved all of this, and I think it says a lot about Gleeson. He was, uh, clearly jacked up during the Texas game last week so to hear Gundy say he could get it all back together quickly is encouraging.One of the biggest (fairest) frustrations of the Mike Yurcich era was in-game adjustments. I don’t know if that was because of emotions or something else — and I also don’t want to crown Gleeson after he handed it to Chuba 203 times in a row for 3.3 yards a pop in Austin — but I did enjoy the comp and am generally excited about the Gleeson era.Not the Gundy + Gleeson era … but the Gleeson + Gleeson era.

NFL Update: The Top Five OSU Storylines from Week 7

first_imgIt was a somewhat slow week as far as orange-flavored NFL news goes with bye weeks and injuries keeping a handful of Cowboys out of action. But there are still plenty of tidbits and pertinent news concerning Pokes in the pros.Here are the top five NFL storylines relating to Oklahoma State.Mason Rudolph Cleared for ReturnNo. 2 spent his bye week in Stillwater, along with former teammates like Emmanuel Ogbah, and even played dunk competition judge at Homecoming and Hoops.But days before that, Rudolph cleared concussion protocol following his nasty head-to-head collision with Baltimore safety Earl Thomas three weeks ago. Earlier this week, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin affirmed that Rudolph would be the starter once he was able saying, “That guy is our quarterback.”Rudolph is set to return Oct. 28 on Monday Night Football (he’s 1-0 on MNF) against an accommodating (and 31st-ranked) Miami Dolphins defense. Look for Rudy to light it up on the big stage.Blake Jarwin Scores in Cowboys’ Big WinOne Target. One Catch. 1 Yard. One Touchdown.That was the Sunday stat line for the former (and current) Cowboys tight end.Could Blake Jarwin BE anymore open?pic.twitter.com/TS8QqoJvhk— Yahoo Sports (@YahooSports) October 21, 2019That might have been the easiest score of Blake Jarwin’s football career. It pushed America’s team (but not mine!) to a 21-7 lead against division rival Philadelphia. Dallas would win 37-10.A year after working his way into a featured role in 2018, the return of future HOFer Jason Witten has pushed Jarwin down the TE totem pole, but through seven games, Jarwin is still second among the position group in targets (15) and receptions (11) and he’s tied with Witten for two TDs. His 35 receiving yards leads all Dallas tight ends.Witten won’t be around forever. If Jarwin keeps making plays like this, he’s in a good spot to take up that mantle in Big D.James Washington Returns to PracticeIn the same game that Rudolph went down, his fellow Cowboy-turned-Steeler James Washington was sidelined with a shoulder injury. Washington returned to practice on Monday and Mike Tomlin seems somewhat optimistic that he could be available for the Monday Night game against Miami on Oct. 28.Bye week came at a good time for the Steelers. WR James Washington (shoulder) and CB Steve Nelson (groin) we’re back at practice today. Both said they were glad for the bye to heal up and rehab.— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) October 21, 2019Tomlin mentioned Washington among three Steelers who have progressed this week to Steelers.com.“We’re excited about getting some of these guys back – at least moving in the right direction in terms of partial participation and we’ll get an opportunity to look at that participation and see if they can carry some roles for us this week.”Chris Carson — Still Truck-StickingCarson broke a streak of three-straight 100-yard rushing games with his 65-yard outing in the 30-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and former backfield mate Justice Hill.Despite the fact that his Seahawks suffered just their second loss of the season, Carson was productive and made a memorable play against a familiar defender.Carson got a little inadvertent payback for a former teammate (Mason Rudolph) against another former teammate (Earl Thomas).CHRIS CARSON TRUCKED EARL THOMAS 🤣🔥🤘🏽 pic.twitter.com/0vhIhricgB— Sports ON Tap Seattle (@SONTSeattle) October 20, 2019Despite the slightly down weekend, Carson is still ranked seventh in the NFL in rushing yards (569 through seven games). He finished fifth last year with 1,151.Marcell Ateman Goes DeepIt’s been a rough go for Marcell Ateman during his young pro career. After being projected into the first round of the NFL Draft by one draft analyst, Ateman fell all the way to the seventh. Things didn’t go much smoother after that.He spent the first half of his rookie season on the Raiders’ practice squad before injuries saw Ateman promoted to the active roster. Despite showing some promise when called upon down the stretch, Ateman was relegated once again to the scout team to start 2019.But in Year 2, he’s back and has taken on the No. 88 jersey (which I love for a tall, rangy receiver) and in his second game since promotion has already shown his deep-ball skills.Marcell Ateman snags his first reception of the season. Great job high pointing a contested catch. #RaiderNation pic.twitter.com/F7hrwNrsXo— Chris Reed (@ChrisReed_NFL) October 20, 2019 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
