KB935896: A problem has been identified when running timed scripts in an Operations Manager 2007 Management Pack converted from a MOM 2005 Management Pack.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935896/en-us

KB936838: A problem has been identified with agents reporting to multiple Management Groups. The discovery data is not created in any subsequent Management Group once the data is send over to the first Management Group.

When one of its processes does consume too many system resources, the agent tries to restart itself.  Process\Private Bytes; Process\Handle Count.

KB936339: A problem has been identified in the Group Calculation Query Module that affects the population of Windows computers into subnet group in the Network Topology diagram view.  After discovering network routers in Essentials 2007, the Network Topology diagram view in the Monitoring space will be populated with subnet groups that contain network devices, but no Windows-based computers.  After applying this hotfix, computers running Windows will be correctly populated into subnet groups and will appear in the Network Topology diagram view.

KB936481: You cannot install the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 Reporting feature in a disjointed namespace environment. For example "The specified domain does not exist or cannot be contacted." from the setup log.

KB938505: You use the Reporting Space option in the Japanese version of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 to view certain reports. However, when you view these reports, you find that the information about a report is not in Japanese. Instead, the report information is in English.  You experience this problem with the reports that appear in the following nodes under Reporting:  Client Monitoring Views Library; Microsoft ODR Report Library.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938505/en-us

KB939364: Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 cannot find some network devices by using the network device discovery process. Therefore, you cannot manage these network devices in Operations Manager 2007.  This problem occurs even though the network devices respond to the "GET" packets that the Snmputil.exe tool sends.  This problem occurs because Operations Manager 2007 supports only version 2 of the SNMP protocol (SNMPv2). Devices that do not support SNMPv2 ignore the "GET" packets that Operations Manager sends. Therefore, the network device discovery process cannot detect these devices. For example, this situation occurs when the devices support only version 1 of the SNMP protocol (SNMPv1) or version 3 of the SNMP protocol (SNMPv3).  The Snmputil.exe tool uses both SNMPv1 and SNMPv2. These devices respond to the "GET" packets that the Snmputil.exe tool sends even if the devices support only SNMPv1.
