SCOM: Windows Operating System MP’s Updated to version 6.0.7292.0


Just a short blogpost to mention that the Windows Server Operating System Management Packs are updated to 6.0.7292.0. Based on the Management Pack documentation the following fixes are included:

  • Mount point Names have been changed from GUIDs to a friendly drive letter name
  • Fixed performance collection workflows that were failing for some mount points
  • Fix was made to include Mount points without a drive letter name

I imported these management packs in my test environment and the new Management Packs are working without any errors. As Always read first the management Pack documentations and then apply the pack to your OpsMgr environment. It’s preferred to do this first in your test environment and when everything works without errors you could update them in your production environment.

You can download the updated packs here.
