ConnectorFrameworkProxy.InitializeWithBookmark Method

Updated: April 16, 2012

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)Dim instance As ConnectorFrameworkProxy Dim connectorId As Guid Dim utcBookmarkTime As DateTime instance.InitializeWithBookmark(connectorId, utcBookmarkTime)Public Sub InitializeWithBookmark ( _ connectorId As Guid, _ utcBookmarkTime As DateTime _ )public void InitializeWithBookmark ( Guid connectorId, DateTime utcBookmarkTime )public: void InitializeWithBookmark ( Guid connectorId, DateTime utcBookmarkTime )public void InitializeWithBookmark ( Guid connectorId, DateTime utcBookmarkTime )public function InitializeWithBookmark ( connectorId : Guid, utcBookmarkTime : DateTime )ParametersconnectorIdThe globally unique identifier (GUID) for the monitoring connector to initialize.utcBookmarkTimeA 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.
