This year at Ignite SCOM had it’s own dedicated session which is great to see. Here is a summary of the new upcoming features in UR1.
Version Agnostic Management Packs
Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) MP
RHEL 8 Support
One click patching experience
Support for gMSA
Relability and Performance Improvemennts for Linux Agent
Common Management Pack for Linux
Resource Group monitoring in Azure MP
Azure MP Web Console Dashboards
The ones I’m most looking forward to are of course the support for gMSA, with security being so critical in today’s IT real-estate this features adds an additional layer of peace of mind to your SCOM monitoring.
The one click patching experience is also a nice quality of life improvement, I had the privilege to see this in action and I like the direction this is going.
More agnostic management packs are also on the way which will simplify administration of products the same way we’ve seen them improve the SQL monitoring experience.
