Microsoft System Center Management Pack for SQL Server Replication enables the monitoring of Replication as set of technologies for copying and distributing data and database objects from one database to another and then synchronizing between databases to maintain consistency.
Please see below for the new features and improvements in the dashboards, SQL Server MPs, and Replication MPs. More detailed information can be found in guides that can be downloaded from the links above.
Two Issues Fixed
There were two issues uncovered in 126.96.36.199 that is fixed in this release (188.8.131.52).
If the SCOM installation uses SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2, users will see an error during installation:
‘DeploymentException’: Failed to perform Data Warehouse component deployment operation: Install; Component: Script, Id: ‘4173391e-ce71-1369-c358-17030bb09b41’, Management Pack Version-dependent Id: ‘a2bce88f-fcf8-ddcb-7b0f-4d343e766e78’; Target: Database, Server name: ‘XXXXXXX’, Database name: ‘OperationsManagerDW’. Batch ordinal: 42; Exception: Operand data type uniqueidentifier is invalid for max operator.
The user will not be able to use the SQL Dashboards. The user will see errors in the dashboards and the error log.
If the dashboards user has limited access rights to DW (granted only the OpsMgrReader role), he cannot access and/or modify the LastAlertValues table and he will get an error:
The INSERT permission was denied on the object ‘Microsoft_SQLServer_Visualization_Library_LastAlertValues’, database ‘OperationsManagerDW’
The limited rights user will not be able to use the SQL Dashboards.
We are looking forward to hearing your feedback.
