Cumulative Update 5 (CU#5) for SCOM R2 is available for download

For a few hours now CU#5 for SCOM R2 is available for download.

KB2495674 describes this CU in more detail. At the moment this KB article isn’t live yet so there isn’t much I can tell you. Taken directly from the download page of this CU:

CU#5 can be downloaded from here. Since RTFM (Read The Friendly Manual) is certainly required here, I personally wait with installing CU#5 until the earlier mentioned webpage comes available.

Some advice
In the past CUs added much value to any SCOM R2 environment. None the less, some new issues (unwanted side effects) were introduced as well. So test the new CU first before installing it right away in your SCOM R2 production environment. Also keep a keen eye on the SCOM Community since much installation experiences with CU#5 will be found there as well.

Soon I will post my own installation experiences to add my two cents :).
