MMA Agent, cross platform, and Azure

Things that make you go hmmm....



Ran across a scenario where we were trying to connect Azure Cross-platform (Linux) VM's and MMA/SCOM agents to SCOM management group.


Management group was 2012R2, discovery wizard from SCOM console, failed to install agent, certificate errors.


Reseraching, found this article first

SCOM2012R2 after UR12 or SCOM 2016 UR2+ deprecated the SHA1 certificate


Deprecating SHA1 certificates


Product team nicely published a TechNet gallery script to help!
