How to get the latest versions of SCOM MP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Last week I installed Update Rollup 5 on my SCOM 2012 SP1. There are many Retail MPs in this SCOM instance like IIS, SQL , DNS, DHCP, Operating Systems, HP, Dell, etc..

    I wanted to know how will I get notified if there are newer versions of these MPs available.

    I know that I can download them from the MP Catalog center through SCOM console but If I don't get some information on which newer MPs are available then will I have to manually check in the catalog if newer versions are available or not.


    Thanks, S K Agrawal

  • I got the answer I think -

    1) In SCOM console, click on Download MP.

    2) In the MP catalog page, under 'View' select 'Updates available for installed MPs'.

    3) This will provide the list of all MPs that needs to be updated.
