New KB Article – Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack

August 4, 2011 Leave a comment

For the authors amongst us, Microsoft have released a new KB Article that allows us to download the latest version of the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack so that we can reference it in the Authoring Console. This Management Pack gets imported into SCOM as part of the CU4 and CU5 updates but doesn’t leave copy on disk to reference in the Authoring console.

SCOM 2012 – supported configurations

July 19, 2011 Leave a comment

Just a quick heads up on a couple of items that need to be considered if you will be looking to upgrade OpsMgr 2007 R2 to SCOM 2012 at some future date. In SCOM 2012:

1) There is no support for windows 2000 agents.

2) Management Servers must be Windows 2008 R2 or later

3) SQL Server needs to be SQL 2008 SP1 or SQL 2008 R2

4) All SCOm 2007 R2 agents must have cumulative update 4 or later applied

The full list is here – http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh205990.aspx

SCOM 2012 beta install – Web Console errors

July 18, 2011 Leave a comment

If you install .Net Framework 4 before installing IIS then you are likely to hit a couple of errors on the pre-install check:

webconsole install error

webconsole install error

The fix is to re-register IIS using:

– %Windir%\Microsoft.Net\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -r

– additionally, you might find you need to go into the IIS Management Console and enable ISAPI and CGI restrictions of .Net4
webconsole
