Installing Update Rollup 8 SCOM 2012 Sp1

Standard

In this blog post I will take you true the steps of installing System Center Operations Manager 2012 Sp1 update Rollup 7 to Update Rollup 8

The following issues are fixed in this Update

  • The Health Service bouncing that is caused by high memory usage in the MonitoringHost process.
  • This update includes a fix to prevent resynchronization of all managed entities from the Operations Manager to the Operations Manager Data Warehouse (OMDW) database and to prevent the failure to sync that this causes because of duplicate entries.
  • The import of Visualization.component.library and Visualization.library binary files (.mpb) fails. The import succeeds on a successive try.
  • System Center Operations Manager agents randomly time out when authenticating to the Gateway or Management Server because of domain controller or network performance issues. The time-out value was set to 1 second earlier. A fix was made to increase server time out to-20 seconds and client time out to 5 minutes.
