OMS Linux Agent: Docker Image for Microsoft Operations Management Suit

The Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) is a software-as-a-service offering from Microsoft that allows Enterprise IT to manage any hybrid cloud. It offers log analytics, automation, backup and recovery, and security and compliance. Sign up for a free account at or read more about here:

Setting up

As a pre-requisite, docker must be running prior to this installation. If you have installed before running docker, please re-install OMS Agent. For more information about docker, please go to

This set up is not for ACS Mesosphere DC/OS or ACS Kubernetes.

For more information on Mesosphere DC/OS, please see here.

For Kubernetes, please see here. yaml file for the daemon-set is here.

For Docker Swarm, please see here.

For Redhat OpenShift, please see here. This set up provides a containerized Container Solution Agent (OMS Agent for Linux). If you are interested in a full OMS Agent for linux with Container Solution, please go here.

To use OMS for all containers on a container host

  • Start the OMS container:

To use OMS for all containers on a container host for FairFax OMS Workspace

  • Start the OMS container on FairFax OMS workspace:

If you are switching from the installed agent to the container

If you previously used the directly installed agent and want to switch to using the container, you must remove the omsagent. See Steps to install the OMS Agent for Linux

If you have an older version of Docker and would want to still use OMS Container Solution to monitor your data go here.


You can upgrade to a newer version of the agent. See here.

What now?

Once you're set up, we'd like you to try the following scenarios and play around with the system.
