    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

    This ask has been shipped with SCOM 1807, which enables you to disable the APM component when you deploy the Operations Manager agent from Discovery Wizard in the console, when performing a repair of the agent from the Operations console, and similarly controlling behavior when using the PowerShell cmdlets Install-SCOMAgent and Repair-SCOMAgent.

    This feature ask will also be shipped in SCOM 2019.

    Issues related to APM, crashing the IIS application pools has been fixed and shipped with SCOM 2016 UR6: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4459897/update-rollup-6-for-system-center-2016-operations-manager#enable

    Fix to these issues, will also be available in SCOM 2019.

  2. SCOM 2016 support SQL Server 2016SP1

    Currently SCOM 2016 does NOT support SP1. SP1 touts consistent programmability across SQL Server editions. This should also benefit the development team to streamline customizations.

  3. SCOM Web Service for easy integration

    Provide a Web Service to interact with SCOM. This would help integrating SCOM into persisting infrastructures, building connectors from and to SCOM.
