    The powershell module looks wrong, should this function really be called Connect- ?

        .DESCRIPTION
        The Connect-SqlMonitor cmdlet attempts to initate a connection with a SQL Monitor Server.

    Breaking Changes

    Starting with SQL Monitor v10.2, SQL Monitor base monitors can no longer be installed on Windows Server 2012 or earlier. For the time being, this only affects the base monitor. Support for running the SQL Monitor website on Windows Server 2012 or earlier will be removed in the future.

    We've moved to .NET Core 3.1; Microsoft do not support Windows Server 2012 or earlier as deployment targets for .NET Core 3.1. This also means that SQL Monitor base monitors cannot be installed on unsupported desktop operating systems. Refer to Microsoft's installation guidance for specific versions.

    You can monitor the same versions of Windows and SQL Server that you've always monitored. However, base monitors need to be installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 or newer.

    Features

    • The Amazon RDS SQL Server monitoring preview now includes support for alerts and groups.
      • Most SQL Server-specific alerts can now be raised for Amazon RDS SQL Servers.
      • The alerts appear in the alert inbox, and alert summaries appear in the global and server overview pages.
      • Amazon RDS SQL Servers can now be placed into groups.
      • Alert settings for each server are inherited from their group, and can be overridden in the Configure > Alert settings pages.

    Fixes

    • SRP-13298 fixed an issue loading log pages for clusters or cluster nodes.
    • Correctly display warning when upgrading from a version of SQL Monitor earlier than 10.2 that installing on older Windows versions is no longer supported.

  • SQL Monitor 10.2.2 has been released.  Direct download link

    Features

    • SRP-13263 Trust Server Certificate in SQL Server connection properties now available through the API

    Fixes

    • SRP-13300 Fixed Alert Suppression Windows powershell client issues.
    • Fixed an issue with popup action menus sometimes not being visible.
    • SRP-13306 Analysis pages now correctly get show data from all base monitors.
  • SQL Monitor 10.2.3 has been released.  Direct download link

    Fixes

    • SRP-13308 Fixes a monitoring error on SQL Server 2012 SP1 caused by accessing user_objects_deferred_dealloc_page_count
    • Resolves a visual issue with the top graph on server overview pages.
  • PaulDPaulD Posts: 11 Bronze 1
    on upgrade to 10.2.3, 100% (4 out of 4) of base monitor installs failed with "SQL Monitor Base failed with exit code 0xe0434352". However all base monitors show up in configuration without reporting errors, so I'm kind of assuming that everything is OK.

    PaulD, I too experience this issue.  If you run the install a second time, it will succeed.  I'm not sure if running a second time is really needed, but I get nervous when the installer reports that the installation failed, so I run it again just in case. 

    This issue only seems to manifest itself if you are running the web monitor and base monitors on separate hosts.  I have reported this issue to Red Gate Support and they have been able to reproduce it.  They have created SRP-13303 to address this.  I have not received an indication as to when it is expected to be resolved.  But am hopeful it will be soon.
  • PaulDPaulD Posts: 11 Bronze 1
    thanks Don. I haven't re-run the installers and (touch wood) all seems good so far.
  • SQL Monitor 10.2.4 has been released. Direct download link

    Features
    • The Amazon RDS SQL Server monitoring preview now includes support for Analysis and Active Directory permissions. You can also specify Amazon RDS Sql Servers in Custom metrics.
    Improvements
    • Improved support for Amazon RDS SQL Servers on the monitored servers page.
    • SRP-13342 - Disk space SNMP alert shows disk space values.
    Fixes
    • SRP-13246 - Log Backup overdue will not raise on master databases.
    • SRP-13277 - Fix issue with testing server connectivity on the manage monitored servers page when the 'auto-detect cluster name' option is deselected.
    • SRP-13339 - Classify additional sql server processes as sql processes correctly.
    • SRP-13355 - Fix issue with Azure SQL Databases failing to be listed on the analysis page.
    • Restored the ability to set an HTTP proxy for Webhooks and Slack notifications. See documentation for steps to set this up.
    Changes
    • Replaced the log4net logging library with Serilog. A security vulnerability was reported against log4net (CVE-2018-1285, CVSS base score 9.8). Whilst the use of log4net within SQL Monitor was not subject to the vulnerability, we've nonetheless removed log4net to avoid false positives in security scans. If you have customized your log4net configuration within SQL Monitor, those customizations will no longer apply. In this case, please contact Redgate support for help with replicating your customizations using the new Serilog configuration files.

    • PowerShell API update to support Add, Get, Remove SQL Servers for Amazon RDS and Azure SQL Servers.
