In October 2010, I started employment with Microsoft, where I am working as a Program Manager on the System Center Operations Manager Cross-Platform team.  This is an opportunity that I am very excited about and I am working with a team that I am really proud to be a part of.  I will continue to blog at this site, and I will focus primarily on OpsMgr Cross-Platform topics. 

Additionally, I am excited to announce some new developments regarding the xSNMP and Manage-X for Oracle Management Pack projects.   After developing these Management Pack projects as a solo effort for some time, these projects are now being converted to community-driven projects.  Pete Zerger, of, has assembled a fantastic team of MP authoring experts, with a remarkable depth of OpsMgr knowledge,  to drive continued development of these management packs.   

The xSNMP and Manage-X for Oracle MP projects are now homed at:   General download, source code, documentation, and discussion can be found at this CodePlex site.
