  • Hi

    Be Aware of the fact that there are different modes of client Monitoring. There is collective Client Monitoring where you deploy an Agent to the Client and basically you just start collecting data without getting alerts. The other Kind of Client Monitoring is called Business Critical Client Monitoring .In this case you just do the same as for collective Client Monitoring, but you add also the Clients into the Business Critical Client Monitoring Group. This way you will also receive alerts. Check the MP guide on this MP for Details. I just wanted to deliver some more info.

    Btw. Windows 8 MP has been realeased recently http://systemcenter.pinpoint.microsoft.com/en-US/applications/System-Center-Management-Pack-for-Windows-8-Client-Operating-System-12884957820 I know you did not ask for, but still good to know.

    Cheers,


    Stefan

  • Hi,

    The latest version of the client MP is 6.0.6729.0 and is available for download here, http://systemcenter.pinpoint.microsoft.com/en-US/applications/Windows-Client-XP-Vista-Windows-7-Operating-System-Monitoring-Management-Pack-12884902219.  It is the same version that was available for 2007 R2.

    The MP functions fine in 2012 SP1, are you experiencing any issues?

     As to be expected , the link is NOT pointing towards the management pack that is requested.. NOTHING to be found... Not even with a simple search for "Windows 7"... so Microsoft is still ( read: AGAIN) not  delivering a proper answer/solution to a very SIMPLE question ( Where can i find ......)

    But after so much trouble i found the management pack for Vista/ windows 7, I finally got the msi (hurray hurray).

    (cant reconstruct the way that i found them.......... try search for : "Windows Client OS Operations Manager 2007 MP.msi")

    After installing it .. the xml files can be imported....... but installation fails --> Mp's not found in the database...

    (DUH .. im trying to install them )

    So ..back to where i started from.. : NO management for the clients................(*AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGHHHHHHHHHHHH*)
