BGInfo - Useful tool

Post by jameswebber » Mon Jan 27, 2014 8:11 pm

Guys,
Just was using this and thought I would post on it.

Do you know about BGInfo which makes a desktop page for your servers.

I use it on all my servers.
It's free and written by System Internals - available on Tech Net http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysi ... 97557.aspx

How I set it up:
1: Place all install files in BGinfo
2: Run the BGinfo.exe and save a config file with the layout I want - you can add custom variables to tm1 log files, tm1 version numbers etc.
3: Create a batch file to run the app calling the config file with no timer so it loads straight away
C:\Scripts\Bginfo\bginfo.exe C:\Scripts\Bginfo\config.bgi /TIMER:0
4: Add a shortcut of the batch to the all users startup folder on the server.

Moved to the General forum. While BGInfo is very useful, it's not only TM1 realated,
