Zabbix Summit 2022 in Riga: Keeping hundreds of Windows Zabbix agents in sync across different customers

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be one of the speakers at Zabbix Summit 2022 in Riga. As moderator of the Zabbix Telegram and Zabbix reddit community, I was asked by Zabbix to present at the premier event about Zabbix monitoring.

The 10th Zabbix Summit is taking place in Riga, Latvia on October 7-8. My speech is titled:

Keeping hundreds of Windows Zabbix agents in sync across different customers

As a Managed Services Provider (MSP) we are responsible for dozens of customers, with hundreds of Windows Servers. Therefore, we introduced mechanisms to automatically deploy, configure, and sync Windows Zabbix agents across all these isolated environments. In this process, we leverage a tool set consisting of Azure DevOps, Git, PowerShell, and a publicly available Zabbix agent auto-updater, to provide all our customers’ servers with the latest Zabbix agent configuration possible.

Marco Hofmann is an IT-Systems Engineer with 15+ years worth of experience. He works at the german Managed Services Provider ANAXCO GmbH. His priority is the configuration and maintenance of the company’s central Zabbix environment, which is a key component in the fulfillment of the customers’ maintenance contracts. He also focuses on designing and configuring Citrix RDSH environments, fully automated with PowerShell.
