Keep NOAPM=1 as default setting for all MMA versions
The APM component (regardless of APM being enabled) frequently breaks .NET applications. Re-installing agent with NOAPM=1 means we cannot leverage the SCOM console to deploy agents. Request
Thorsten S commented
we are using this command to remove the APM component from already installed agents:
msiexec /fvomus \\<server>\share$\MOMAgent.msi NOAPM=1
You can run it from the SCOM mangement view using "Execute any PowerShell". Important bit is, that the UNC path doesn't contain any spaces.

If one reconfigures the agent with NOAPM=1; then "Pending Management" updates ( in the event of applying a UR) fails from the console. The console expects APM component to be installed; so this would require a fix in the console side as well.
yes we want this

As an alternative, I would love to see a method to change this configuration without a full installation of the client.
