Today we finally released the Cumulative update 4 for Operations Manager 2007 R2.

Cumulative Update 4 resolves the following issues:

  • The Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) Tips feature does not function correctly after you install Cumulative Update 3 for SCOM 2007 R2.
  • The Alert view does not work correctly when the source of an alert contains both monitors and rules.
  • The event description is not collected by the Azure management pack. To resolve this issue, build the Windows Azure application by using Windows Azure SDK 1.3.
  • The monitoring host process may stop responding on a computer that is running on Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
  • The performance of the Diagram view is slow if a user role is in the scope of many groups.
  • In the web console properties for an alert, the hyperlinks on the Knowledge tab are not active.

Cumulative Update 4 for SCOM 2007 R2 adds the following features:

  • SQL Server 2008 R2 database upgrade support
