We’re happy to announce a new update release of our VMware Management Pack for SCOM 2012/2016. This latest release is upgradable starting from V1.3.0.0 or later.

The update is downloadable from the customer download area.


VMware Management Pack V1.3.7.0

The new VMware Management Pack update allows the monitoring of larger VMware environments, using a lower footprint while maintaining stability.

The optimization of all modules has enabled the management pack to be able to handle more workloads and we’ve added detailed error messaging for the connection check monitor.

Other Adjustments
  • When using GW as a SCOM resource pool members to monitor VMware, it can no longer result in an unresponsive resource pool.
  • Hardware monitoring, in some situations, can no longer stall and report an error to the event log.
  • Incorrect last value is no longer shown in alert messages from some monitors.
  • When adding a new VC connection, an incorrect server is no longer used to do the connection check.

For more additions, changes, and fixes please refer to release notes.
