  • Updated Management Packs

  • FYI, It looks like the MP guides have not been updated yet. For example, when I downloaded the MP guide for the Windows Server OS it still showed a date of October 2013 for the previous version...

  • @Wilson W. - Yep, saw the same thing here for the DNS and AD DS.

  • "Fixed Microsoft.Windows.Server.LogicalDiskDiscovery.Module.Type.vbs script does not discover logical disks with large disk size"... how large is large?

  • Nice.
    BTW - have You found "lost" MP for Remote desktop services 2012 R2 ? There is only console download and no documentation (link broken).

  • Can't find MP for Multipoint Server

  • It would be awesome if we could right click on management packs and have an option to check for updates.

  • A word of caution on an undocumented change to the Core OS MP 6.0.7230.0 - Do you recall the old single low disk monitor that provided the % and MB in the alert description? Well it's back! However... 1. It's enabled by default, and the previous "Logical Disk Free Space" monitor is disabled. 2. Out of the box it runs once an hour vs. every 15 min. 3. The consolidation module or 'num samples' module is gone.

    In the underlying XML it's labeled with 'legacy' but you don't see that in the console. The other rollup and individual % and MB monitors are still there as disabled so no change there. If you're using either of those new rollup ones then you'll be fine and will just need to disable this new 'legacy' monitor.

  • Remote desktop services 2012 R2 is back online now.

  • link to MSMQ 5.0, 6.0, 6.3 version: 7.1.10109.0 download is broken

  • Can this information be available through email subscription whenever an updated management pack gets updated version we will be notified immediately?

  • For the Windows Server DNS update the documentation (word doc from download) mentioned there were bug fixes in August 2014 but doesn't list what they are, does anyone know where we can find a list of them?
