Lets talk for a minute about Windows Server 2012. This new server OS has hit RTM already. However – initially this OS version was only going to be supported as an agent monitored system for SCOM 2012. There was to be no support for monitoring WS2012 with SCOM 2007R2. However – that position has changed somewhat – as we will now support monitoring of Windows Server 2012, with a SCOM 2007R2 CU5+ management group, as long as you deploy a SCOM2012 *agent* to any monitored Windows Server 2012 instances.
For using Windows Server 2012 as a server role in your SCOM infrastructure (management server, gateway, web console, etc…) we will require SCOM 2012 SP1 at a minimum.
He goes on to discuss what’s new, some fixes, changes and known issues in the base Management Pack update.
