SCOM 2007 R2 (OpsMgr) - Cumulative Update Rollup 6 (CU6) - Available Now

Microsoft has just released their latest cumulative update for SCOM 2007 R2 - CU6. This update hotfix comes with a number of fixes including some I've had in the past in relation to reports failing on Windows 7 and the reporting pane not opening from the console sometimes too.

It also brings some new feature set additions for Cross Platform monitoring including:
  • Support for IBM AIX 7.1 (POWER)
  • Support for Oracle Solaris 11 (x86 and SPARC)

An overview of the fixes and issues that this rollup resolves are below:

Cumulative Update 6 for Operations Manager 2007 R2 resolves the following issues:
  • RMS promotion fails if NetworkName and PrincipalNames are not in sync for agents.
  • UI is limited to only 100 MB for the Memory Usage field in the wizard.
  • Additional OIDs in auth certificate are not processed correctly.
  • AEM creates duplicate computer objects in OpsMgr based on Agents NetBIOS name.
  • Cannot open reporting pane on OpsMgr 2007 R2 remote console.
  • Cannot view schedule for scheduled report.
  • ManagementServerConfigTool with the option "promoterms" fails because it stops polling the SDK Service.
  • OpsMgr reports are failing on Windows 7 with the error: "Cannot initialize report."
  • ACS events have "n/a" as their category in the ACS database.
  • Watch agentless monitoring listener to detect failure to respond.
  • SCOM SDK memory leak on cryptography keys and cryptography contexts.
  • After you click Edit Schedule, a message box appears, and you cannot save the change value.
  • Audit events can be lost when the AdtServer process crashes.
Cumulative Update 6 for Operations Manager 2007 R2 resolves the following cross-platform issues:
  • The installation process for the IBM AIX 6.1 agent incorrectly checks for AIX 5.3 packages.
  • After a system restart, the OpsMgr agent for Solaris may start to run before local file systems are mounted.
  • On Red Hat Linux version 4 and SUSE Linux version 9, LVM disks are not discovered and cannot be monitored.
  • The OpsMgr agent for AIX does not report the arguments for monitored processes.
  • When Microsoft security update MS12-006 is installed on an OpsMgr management server, that management server can no longer communicate with the OpsMgr agent on any Linux or UNIX server.
  • On HP-UX, OpsMgr cannot discover and monitor a logical volume that is composed of more than 127 physical volumes.
