I suggest you ...

Update the Universal Linux Management Pack Guide (UniversalLinuxMPGuide.doc)

The "Universal Linux Management Pack Guide for System Center 2012 SP1 - Operations Manager" guide included with Linux Management Packs has not been updated since April of 2013, and does not reflect accurate information (e.g. does not include Oracle Linux 7 as supported). The guide should be reviewed and updated with any new version of the MPs.

    I agree! Troubleshooting steps would be handy in deployment as well. Might be nice to mention where the files are stored on the UNIX\Linux box when deployed from 2016 vs 2012 since that changed as well in 2016.

    Universal guide is definitely the worst as to technology/industry changes for UNIX.

    Guides last dated April 2012 for SCOM 2012 (not SP1 or R2)

    SUSE shows Feb 2015 history update for SLES12
    RedHat updated June 2014
    Solaris (no revisions since April 2012)
    Universal is for 2012SP1 (published April 2013)

    Revision history would be nice, the SLES and RedHat guides were updated in the past, but there is no revision history.

    UniversalLinuxMPguide.doc for SCOM 2016 UNIX MP 7.5.1067.0

    No revision history
    Title shows for SCOM 2012SP1
    No CentOS7, Debian Linux 7, Ubuntu 14,16
    OEL v7 ( fyi OEL v7 released 2014 http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/2245947 )
