Technical Preview : Management Packs for Windows Server 2016 Server Roles have been updated

Just a quick note to let you know that we updated System Center Operations Manager Management Packs for Windows Server 2016 roles. The table in this blog summarizes the updates made to each of the management packs. If you already installed the August 2015 version of management packs for the same role, please uninstall it manually before installing the updated management packs.

We are committed to creating management packs that address your monitoring needs but at the same time do not overwhelm you with too many alerts. We release management packs early so you can preview them and offer us feedback about the management packs. If you have feature requests for any of the management packs, please let us know at our Feedback website. If you find your feature has already been requested by someone else, please up-vote it. We consider the most up-voted feature requests for the next release of the management pack.

We are actively working on creating management packs for Windows Server 2016 server roles such as Active Directory Certificate Services, Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services, Remote Desktop Services, Hyper-V, Message Queuing, Host Guardian Service, Routing and Remote Access Service, Active Directory Web Application Proxy, Windows Server Update Services, Windows Deployment Services, Network Policy and Access Services, Active Directory Federation Services, Hyper V, MSMQ.
