AEM: ADMX File for SCOM R2

With Windows Server 2008 a new Group Policy format for displaying registry-based policy settings has been introduced: XML file format known as ADMX files. When one wants to use Agentless Exception Monitoring (AEM) in SCOM, one needs to create a GPO template. Until now this template was based on the old format, ADM.

In Windows 2008 environments this approach works well. But what if the new format, ADMX files, is the only one allowed? For now there wasn’t a way to get around it.

Until now that is. Microsoft has released an ADMX file for SCOM R2 AEM, to be found here.
