My Experience Upgrading SquaredUP v3.2 to v3.3 on my SCOM 2016 Environment

No comments
Hello! This post it's to share with other ITPros about my experience on upgrading and utilizing SquaredUp v3.3. This tool has been a fantastic addition to our SCOM monitoring I have been doing SCOM since 2007 and I can tell I always wanted visualizations like these ones. SqauredUp allowed us to easily map applications and even VADA assist us with Microsoft Licensing which we were able to map SQL Servers and External Customers that were potentially not being compliant. I hope this can guide you and help you upgrade your environment in few simple steps.
