  • Hi,

    I don't know if there is any place that contains a list of every SCOM 2019 management pack to download. If upgrading or installing fresh would be the way to get all of them.

    Otherwise i would check the System Center Wiki

    This contains every single management pack from the newest to the oldest.

  • Most MPs are not SCOM-version specific, they vast majority of them will work with SCOM 2019 even if they only mention a SCOM 2012 compatibility, or even SCOM 2007. I don't believe  a "Catalog of MPs for SCOM 2019" exists, it wouldn't make much sense.

    If you're looking for a centralized download location, you can use the SCOM console itself, or this technet wiki, or systemcenter.wiki

    But sometimes these solutions are not 100% up to date, or are missing a few MPs... I personally simply run a google search to find the latest version of the MP I need.

  • Hi Birdal,

    I know you're asking specifically for SCOM 2019, but here's one thing to remember:

    The Microsoft management packs are nowadays version agnostic, which means that the current Microsoft management packs out there will simply be updated to support newer operating systems & workloads, instead of releasing separate management packs. You can find the blog post about this change HERE.

    Example:

    Microsoft System Center Management Pack for Windows Server Operating System 2016 and 1709 Plus
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54303

    In the title it says, Windows Server Operating System 2016 and 1709 "Plus", this means that support for newer operating systems will be added to this management pack.

    If you look at the system requirements, you can see that this management pack supports Windows Server 2019 and SCOM 2019.


    For all Microsoft management packs, the TechNet Wiki link below is a good one to bookmark:

    Microsoft Management Packs
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/16174.microsoft-management-packs.aspx


    You'll find most management packs from the above link, other than that, I don't think there exists a list of management packs specifically for SCOM 2019, I could probably create a list if I have time at some point.


    Best regards,
    Leon

  • This is pretty absurd isn't it?

    Every respectable company wants a proper monitoring solution.
    Microsoft wants to sell systemcenter suite and somewhere hope everyone will use SCOM for monitoring purposes. Yet, with all their vast cloud space and state of art technologies they lack a place on internet where customers can download the latest versions of 'checked in' management packs in a convenient manner. In 2020, really? We need to use a websearch engine to manually find the management pack you're (hopefully) looking for, not knowing if this link actually provides the latest version, because there is no source repository or central changelog with multiple clicks per MP, extract the executables and manually import them into SCOM.

    Not always is it clear if the MP is compatible/certified for which versions of SCOM. And thus can fail upon import as well. This specific subject still has a LOT of improvement to wish for.

    I've also posted a similar item on uservoice, hopefully it will get the needed votes and urgency to get this up in priority.

  • Their answer to this requirement is is the "Updates and Recommendation" dashboard in Administration Pane.

    It theoritically has all the latest versions and only show what you can use...
