Operations Manager

  • When trying to setup Log Analytics connection a timeout would sometimes get an error 200
  • When for some reason a badly formatted XML would be encountered, the contents of this XML would be saved to a file called “Bad.xml” inside of the System32 directory. This functionality has been disabled, to enable it (for debugging purposes) this registry key should be created and set to the value of 1
  • Crashes of MonitoringHost.exe instances which are related to SNMP Discovery
  • Added a configurable Timeout setting in the registry to control the SDK Client Task timeout. This is now configurable via creating this registry key (this needs to be created and set on all existing Management Servers):[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\System Center\2010\Common\SDK Service] – SDK Task Timeout Seconds DWORD type and should have the value set in seconds (default is 1800 seconds)
  • Teams integration failing due to incorrectly named binary file
  • Added indices to 2 Data Warehouse tables to improve performance
