New MPs: Monitoring Windows Server 2012

Yesterday Microsoft released a set of new MPs all targeted at monitoring Windows Server 2012:
  1. Monitoring Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003, 2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2 and 2012 Operating System;
  2. Monitoring Windows Server 2012 Internet Information Service 8;
  3. Monitoring Windows Server 2012 AD RMS (Active Directory Rights Management Services);
  4. Monitoring Windows Server AD CS 2012 (Active Directory Certificate Services).

Until now I am not sure how or what SCOM 2007 R2 is capable of monitoring Windows Server 2012 or any component based on this latest Windows Server technology. When I am 100% sure about it I will post it on my blog.

Hi Marnix,
It seems SCOM 2007 R2 can monitor Windows Server 2012 if you install SCOM 2012 agent on that server and connect it to SCOM 2007 R2 server. And Windows OS MP is still supporting SCOM 2007 R2. The other management packs about AD CS, RMS and IIS8 are not supported for SCOM 2007 R2.
