06/12/2010 Leave a comment

Cumulative Update 3 for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2007 R2  solve several known issues, but within this update there is a problem with SCVMM PRO Integration. If you are using PRO Integration i recommend not to install this, and wait for CU4. If you are in a process of new installation use the CU2 instead.

Cumulative Update 3 for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) 2007 R2 includes all preceding cumulative updates for System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 and this is the first time Microsoft include all updates in the same download file, this is the reason why the file size is above 1Gb.

If you decide to install CU3 i recommend you to keep all the instruction carefully, Microsoft released a KB that describe step by step  instruction to complete the installation successfully. There is a very good article written by Kevin Holman regarding the installation of this update.

New Features and Fixes in this update:

  • Feature addition: Provides the ability to discover the structure of a Windows Azure Application and to monitor the performance and availability of the application.
  • Feature addition: Provides the ability to extract parameters in Web Application Synthetic Transactions. Data from HTTP responses within a web application can request and reuse the parameter in subsequent web application requests.
  • Some ACS reports do not work as expected in Windows Server 2008
  • SCOM 2007 SP1 Reports do not run after a shared Data Warehouse is upgraded to SCOM 2007 R2
  • The SDK Services stops working due to an unhandled exception, and the operations console becomes unresponsive
  • Multi-selection in the alert view is not maintained during a view refresh
  • The operations console stops working when creating an override on the cluster resource group monitor
  • When Agentless Exception Monitoring (AEM) is set up to use SharePoint, reports from Watson are blocked
  • The Operations Manger Console stops working when a high number of instances of State Views or Alert Views are left open for extended durations
  • Upgrading MPs that include new properties may not recreate views correctly
  • The total transaction response performance counter in URL monitoring is not accurate
  • MPs with empty knowledge elements cannot be imported in Operations Manager 2007 R2
  • Monitoringhost.exe does not work reliably on Windows 2003 SP2 X64 Domain Controllers
  • Alerts using the “Specific Time Period” criteria are not included during automatic alert view refresh
  • ACS forwarders with 15 character names in workgroups are unable to communicate with the ACS collector
  • Language packs authored for a previous version of an MP cannot be imported once an updated MP is released
  • Language Pack import fails if the MP contains strings which are not contained in the English Management Pack
  • Generic performance reports consume a large amount of temporary database space and can fail for Windows Server 2003 Computer Groups
  • When using a remote console the notification wizard does not work in certain situations
  • The SDK service may stop working due to an arithmetic overflow error in very rare circumstances
  • The notification scheduler does not compensate correctly for different time zones

PRO Integration Issue:

PRO Tips do not function correctly after CU3 is installed. Event ID 26319 is thrown in the Operations Manager Event Log, and PRO Tips are not shown. If you are leveraging PRO Tips, skip CU3 and wait for CU4 .

Cumulative Update 1 for System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 – known issue

02/02/2010 Leave a comment

A problem occurs when you try to approve agents connected to a GW server, it looks like the update procedure for GW do not copies the
necessary files to the AgentManagement folder.

it means that even if you choose approve for the pending agents, nothing happens and the agents are not updated.

to workaround this issue it is important to use the following update procedure:

  1. Apply the hotfix to the RMS and run the SQL script update against the OperationsManager DB.
  2. Import the updated Management pack.
  3. Apply the hotfix to all Management Servers.
  4. Apply the hotfix to all Gateway servers.
  5. Apply the hotfix to all dedicated consoles.
  6. Apply the hotfix to other components (Web Console, ACS).
  7. validate that all necessary files are in place include the MSI files in AgentNanagement folder. you can copy them from the RMS server.
  8. Apply the hotfix to all the pending agents by approving them. if you have manual installed agents you will need to manually update the.

DO NOT FORGET to Backup the Operations database before you start the update.
