The Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Management Pack (SCOM MP) is now live!

As I discussed in my Managed Availability article, the key difference between this management pack and previous releases, is that our health logic is now built into Exchange, as opposed to the management pack. This means updates to Exchange 2013 (like our cumulative updates), will include changes to the probes, monitors, and responders. Any issues that Managed Availability cannot solve are bubbled up to SCOM via an event monitor.

You can download the management pack via Microsoft Download Center at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39039.

You can also view the following documentation:
