What’s New?

In DPM the most important new feature is the support (again) for Windows Server 2003, removed with the R2 RTM.

In SCOM one of the most important new feature are the new widgets:

  • Contextual Alert Widget
  • Contextual Health Widget
  • Image Widget
  • Object Detail Tiles Widget
  • Object Health Widget
  • Powershell Grid Widget
  • Powershell Web Browser Widget
  • SLA Tiles Widget
  • State Tiles Widget
  • Topology widget
  • Web Browser Widget

Keep in mind to read the KB documentation because you must make a lots of extra steps after the classic installation: for example in VMM/OM is required run SQL script.

Maybe UR2 for DPM could not be available yet because there was an problem with the tape library and Microsoft has retired to resolve the issue.
