System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 Cumulative Update 5 (CU5)

Since beginning of August the Cumulative Update 5 for SCOM is RTM. Now I have some experience with it and so I recommend to perform the update (or at least think about it).

Here is what MS addresses in this update:

  • Restart of non-Operations Manager services when the agent is updated.
  • Updated ACS reports.
  • TCP Port Probe incorrectly reports negative ping latency.
  • MissingEvent Manual Reset Monitor does not work as expected.
  • Drillthrough fails because of rsParameterTypeMismatch in the EnterpriseManagementChartControl.
  • ACS - Event log message is truncated or corrupted in SCDW.
  • UI hang caused by SDK locking.
  • ACS Filter fails for certain wildcard queries.
  • Edit Schedule button is disabled with SQL 2008 R2.
  • Web console times out when you open the left navigation tree.
  • Scheduled Reports view for Windows Server 2003 and for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services SP3 CU9 returns "System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array."
  • Signed MPs cannot be imported when new attributes are added to existing classes.
