SCOM2007 : New Server OS MP, version 6.0.6957.0 has some bad bugs

Hi All,

As you probably already noticed, Microsoft has released some days ago the new New Base OS MP 6.0.6957.0.

This management pack adds a lot of new cool functionalities that Kevin Holman explained on his blog : http://blogs.technet.com/b/kevinholman/archive/2011/09/30/opsmgr-new-base-os-mp-6-0-6956-0-adds-cluster-shared-volume-monitoring-bpa-and-many-changes.aspx

Now after several days, we’re starting to notice that this new management pack has also some “bugs” :

1: Report execution might fail because of lacking proper security settings on a Stored Procedure;
2: Importing the MP might fail when one has many overrides in place for diskspace. All because of a spelling error;
3: Knowledge is out of date for the new default values in the free space monitors;
4: The BPA monitors can be noisy for Server 2008R2 systems;
5: The “performance by utilization” report section dealing with Logical Disk % Idle time is upside down: the lowest idle time values are on top (100% Idle time is the lowest) and the highest idle time (anything close to 10% or even less) are on the bottom.
6: Impossible to deploy the new reports on SQL2005

Marnix Wolf and Bob Cornelissen started to report these bugs on their own blogs :

Marnix also took the really good initiative to open a bug report on connect :

This is not a flame or something like that, just an initiative to get a fixed and working MP very soon with all the great new stuff that was added and without at least most of the issues!
