We’re happy to announce a new update release this month of our VMware Management Pack for SCOM 2012/2016.
• The VMware collector will be automatically installed when a test connection is made in the Configuration Dashboard. The automated installation will also be done for custom SCOM resource pools • In the new update, the monitor “Datastore usage” is based on percentage (%) and GB available storage space. This monitor is enabled by default. • We’ve added extra Virtual Machine discovery properties, such as #CPUs #Network cards #Memory #Annotation #Virtual disks • The monitor "Free space usage for the datastore as a percentage during an interval" has been disabled and replaced by the monitor "Free space usage for the datastore using percentage free and the GB free space during an interval." • [Fixed] In some scenarios the discovery of Hosts and VMs remained incomplete (such as Hosts/VMs put in a different folder path would not be discovered). • [Fixed] The counter “Datastore Highest latency millisecond” is now showing data.
Please be sure .NET 4.5 or higher is installed on the MS server
