Using SharePoint On Premise Diagnostic tool

Futuristic, perhaps, but a powered screwdriver for space, almost looks like Han Solo’s pistol (sans scope)

From previous intro, we start using the tool to diagnose SharePoint problems.

Let’s install, and get to using it!

Once this is released, I expect this to be posted to a GitHub repository.

For now, there will be some mystery for obtaining the file bundle.

Copy folder from build zip file.

Paste to SharePoint machine, whatever standard you use.

From my own past, I prefer a MonAdmin (Monitoring Admin) directory, with a scripts sub-directory, then toolname/version

Example

cd ‘C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001’

Start OPD via powershell

cd ‘C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001’

.\OPD-console.ps1

Avoid some initial questions

cd ‘C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001’

.\OPD-console.ps1 -mode SharePoint -ShareTelemetry Yes -AcceptEula

PS C:\Monadmin\Scripts\OPD-D2.0.1905.15001> .\OPD-console.ps1 -mode SharePoint -ShareTelemetry Yes -AcceptEula

Using OPD to check SharePoint environment

Start with the OPDLog Event Log

OPD Main menu

1 – Administration

Central Admin site

Emails

Timer jobs

2 – Performance

3 – Search

Search Hosts Online

4 – Services

5 – Setup

Firewall ports (duplicated from section 4)

Happy checking and to building new SharePoint checks!
