New DHCP MP solves perfomance issues

At a customers site – with already a SCOM implementation in place - there were performance issues with an Agent monitored DC.

Eventhough the server wasn't very dimensioned, the cpu peaked for long times at 100%.

First I tried the overrides for the DNS MP since the DC involved also functions as a DNS server. It helped but only for a short period of time. The same DC also functions as one of the DHCP-servers. After removing the DHCP MP and replacing it for the newest version (6.0.6452.0, a QFE release to fix the high CPU utilization issues), all is well again. The DC performs neatly, the cpu doesn't flat out at 100% anymore and it is monitored by SCOM.

So don't hesistate and replace any old version of the DHCP MP with the most recent one, to be found here.
