Initializes the monitoring connector that is required to get alerts by calling GetMonitoringAlertsWithBookmark and sets the BookMark time to a specified date and time. Namespace: Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.ConnectorFramework
Assembly: Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager (in microsoft.enterprisemanagement.operationsmanager.dll)


Visual Basic
Dim instance As ConnectorFrameworkProxy
Dim connectorId As Guid
Dim utcBookmarkTime As DateTime

instance.InitializeWithBookmark(connectorId, utcBookmarkTime)


Visual Basic
Public Sub InitializeWithBookmark ( _
		connectorId As Guid, _
		utcBookmarkTime As DateTime _
public void InitializeWithBookmark (
		Guid connectorId,
		DateTime utcBookmarkTime
void InitializeWithBookmark (
		Guid connectorId, 
		DateTime utcBookmarkTime
public void InitializeWithBookmark (
		Guid connectorId, 
		DateTime utcBookmarkTime
public function InitializeWithBookmark (
		connectorId : Guid, 
		utcBookmarkTime : DateTime



The globally unique identifier (GUID) for the monitoring connector to initialize.


A timestamp bookmark. The monitoring connector's bookmark will be set to this bookmark time.


The MonitoringConnector must be set up and initialized before any alerts can be retrieved. This method initializes the monitoring connector for subsequent calls with the specified bookmark.

All alerts with a timestamp earlier than the utcBookmarkTime will be ignored.

Attempting to initialize a monitoring connector that is already initialized results in an exception with the "The connector is already in the given state." warning. It is advisable to perform a check of the Initialized property to determine if the monitoring connector is already initialized before attempting to initialize the monitoring connector.
