  1. Windows Server 2016 Core OS MP TimeOffSet script fails depending on regional settings

    Windows Server 2016 Core OS MP's Microsoft.Windows.Server.TimeOffset.Monitortype.ps1 gives an error message from all our servers with Finnish time format.

    The error message is:
    "System.Management.Automation.MethodInvocationException: Exception calling "ToDecimal" with "1" argument(s): "Input string was not in a correct format."At line:747 char:1
    + [Decimal]$toffset = [convert]::ToDecimal($Time_Offset)
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.PipelineBase.Invoke(IEnumerable input)
    at Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Common.PowerShell.RunspaceController.RunScript[T](String scriptName, String scriptBody, Dictionary`2 parameters, Object[] constructorArgs, IScriptDebug iScriptDebug, Boolean bSerializeOutput)"

    Finnish is using the following date/time formats:

    Short date: d.M.yyyy
    Short time: H.mm
    Long time: H.mm.ss

  2. 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.
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/e7265916-7da2-4412-97c1-27c150a573ec/caution-new-windows-server-management-packs-and-alert-storms?forum=operationsmanagergeneral#e7265916-7da2-4412-97c1-27c150a573ec

    Also the download link for the Management pack guide is broken, so we have no way to ascertain the changes in this reease!

  3. Storage Spaces MP without VMM

    To use storage spaces for generic file serices we need to be able to monitor storage spaces with SCOM without having any dependency on vMM.

    Requiring VMM is only useful if you are using storage spaces in a fileserver for Hyper-V.
