Hot Tip – Creating a Rule with Regular Expression

When creating a rule in OM 2007 the drop down does not allow you to create a regular expression for Event ID. This can be done by doing it in MOM 2005 and then export and import but that is a hassle. MVP Rory McCaw showed how to do it in the OM 2007 GUI at his session at the MMS.

What you need to do is change the parameter name from Event ID to Event Source and you get to chose Regular Expression from the drop down list. Create your Regular Expression as normal and then change the Parameter Name back to Event Id and the expression stays and works.

Great tip. Thanks Rory.
