  1. fix metric alert monitoring in Azure Management Pack

    Monitoring of Azure Metric Alerts hasn't been working since early this year. Objects are discovered fine, but whenever an Azure Metric Alert fires, the change is not comming down to the SCOM environment objects, and thus no SCOM alert is generated.

  2. Azure VM Monitoring is not as per available Monitoring

    We have installed & imported Azure SCOM Management Pack 1.6.0.7 everything seems to be fine post installation.
