Dude – unseal my MP!

Tim McFadden of Microsoft PFE has done it again.  He continually writes handy tools and solutions to help the OpsMgr admin.  His Scheduled Maintenance Mode solution is wildly famous.  His latest tool published is something I will use all the time:

MP2XMLPRO is a GUI tool which makes unsealing an MP super easy.  Now, many SCOM admins never need to unseal an MP…. but if you ever want to run a DIFF against an old MP to a new MP, or crack open MP’s so you can troubleshooting a datasource or a script, or bulk dump a big list of MP’s, this tool does it all.

It runs in three modes:

Unseal a single MP file

Unseal all MP’s in a directory

Connect to a RMS and unseal\export all MP’s to a directory.
