Updated MP: HP Storage MP

Some weeks ago I implemented the latest version of the HP Storage MP.

More then a year before that I had some serious issues with this MP since it contained too much noise, bad Discoveries and polluted the presentation in the SCOM Console. So I feared the worst.

HOWEVER… It turned out that HP had really listened to its customers since the MP has improved significantly. Examples: The noise is reduced, the MP is split up now, so you only get to see those items which are relevant to you and not – like before – presented with all the types of SANs HP delivers. Also the bad Discoveries are gone now.

So that’s a huge improvement and also the level of monitoring has become way much better. So compliments to HP for a job well done!

And now this MP is updated to the latest version in order to deliver full support for SCOM 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2 (mind you, I rolled out the previous version on both type of platforms and it worked without any issues at all but the documentation didn’t list it as supported environments Smile).

When you want to know more about this MP and what’s new, go here.

Again compliments for HP for delivering good MPs for monitoring their storage solutions with SCOM. And when you do have comments on their latest version of this MP know that they listen. Simply leave a good comment on the same website and they know.
