OM12: Update Rollup 1 is available

Even though OM12 is just GA, Update Rollup (UR) #1 is just shipped. Which is good news since OM12 RTM has some ‘hidden features’ which need to be addressed. With CU#1 many of those issues are addressed. Like the website states: ‘…Update Rollup 1 contains a number of fixes for System Center 2012 Operations Manager, including cross platform fixes, as well as support for Oracle Solaris 11…’.

What UR#1 for OM12 fixes? Pretty much actually, so checkout KB2686249 yourself.

Another thing which is good is the size of the UR. It’s ONLY about 76 MB! I seriously hope it stays like that since the SCOM R2 CU monsters of +1 GB were a bit too much IMO.

Secondly, no more bootstrapper. The package simply contains some MSP files which are extracted to a folder of your choice. Per OM12 server role the relevant file is run. How simple can life get?

Useful links:

  • Website where UR#1 can be downloaded from;
  • Website with all the fixes for all System Center 2012 products in UR#1;
  • Kevin’s posting all about his installation experiences of this UR.

For anyone running OM12 this CU is highly recommended.
