OpsMgr 2007 SP1 and SCE 2007 SP1 have recently announced support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 in knowledge base article 953141.  Along with the release of this support statement, the first batch of management packs that provide monitoring for the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Operating System have been released to the MP Catalog.  This batch of MPs covers the following technologies:

·         Windows Server Operating System

·         Windows Terminal Services

·         Windows Server 2008 Application Server

·         Windows Key Management Service

In addition to introducing Server 2008 support, the Windows Server Operating System MP includes the bug fixes detailed below:

·         Updated the logical drive discoveries to omit mapped network drives.

·         Addressed an issue with the Logical Disk Free Space to prevent it from looking like the thresholds were set incorrectly.

·         The state of the configuration of a server now reflects the state of its operating system as well.

·         Fixed an issue with the Server Service Configuration Health monitor which prevented it from ever generating an alert.

The same detail is provided in the MP guide, which is included in the MSI package that can be downloaded from the MP catalog.  The online versions of the MP guides will be available online soon at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc540358(TechNet.10).aspx.

Note:  As described in knowledge base article 954049 you will need to install a hotfix rollup package on your OpsMgr/SCE SP1 environments to address issues on Server 2008.  Likewise, in that article under the section “Prerequisites” there is a list of four additional Windows fixes that you need to be aware and that will need to be deployed.  One of the fixes should be deployed to systems with the Operations Console installed, and the other 3 fixes are for Server 2008 systems that will be managed by OpsMgr/SCE agents.

  • Does anyone know when the MOM 2005 Management Packs will be released? Thanks.

  • Have they every committed to released Windows 2008 MP's for MoM 2005?   I don't rememeber seeing anything about it, and assumed its pretty well move to SCOM and deal with it.

  • here there is suggestion that agent will be supported:  http://blogs.technet.com/momteam/archive/2008/01/09/support-plans-for-opsmgr-2007-sce-and-mom-2005-running-on-windows-server-2008.aspx so if agent we expect full support, isn't it?

  • Awesome, but damn.... 4 hotfixes for every 2008 server you want to monitor?





    Is there any chance of getting these into the Microsoft Update Catalog so we can import and deploy them with WSUS 3.0 SP1? This would greatly speed things up for all of us. I tried finding them in the catalog and they don't seem to exist for importing.


  • So there will NOT be MOM 2005 MPs for Windows 2008?  Please confirm.

  • Any ideas when the Active Directory for 2008 MP will be released??

  • Can Someone help me when the Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, NLB and Windows Cluster for 2008 will be realeased.. (This is for SCOM 2007)?????

  • Now that the hotfixes have been released, I've started testing on 2008.  I've deployed the pre-req 2008 hotfixes to three 2008 boxes.  I've also deployed the agent to these boxes.  Now, I'm trying to deploy the hotfix rollup.  It went okay on my vanilla 2008 machines but I can't install it on my Server Core box because it's asking for .NET 2.0 which doesn't exist on Server Core.  Anyone have any ideas?
