Pull the latest release of the Management Pack for Windows Server Operating System 2016 and 1709 Plus
The recent release of this management pack has over-sensitive monitors which have turned an entire test environment critical. See my post on Technet here for further details.
Also the download link for the Management pack guide is broken, so we have no way to ascertain the changes in this reease!
WE have released the fixed version at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54303. Please refer the MP guide to learn about fixed issues,
Time Accuracy out of range monitor threshold is set to 1 MICROsecond, not 1 millisecond. This performance counter is measured in MICROseconds regarding official docummentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/networking/windows-time-service/windows-server-2016-improvements.
My question is: Which could be a good threshold? 1 minute? 1 second?. Not sure about that and we have a lot alerts from this monitor.
Noticed the Time Accuracy out of range is set to 1ms instead of 1 minute. Crazy.
Guide download link was fixed lately, but guide is missing information. For example Time Accuracy Out of Range monitor is just mentioned, but not explained how it is monitored.
