SCOM 2019 UR1 - Simplified Patching Finally Arrived! 


Microsoft has released Update Roll Up 1 for SCOM 2019 and it comes with some great fixes and additions that will ease the upgrade process in your current environment. 


Simplified management server patching

UR1 introduces a frictionless way of patching the SCOM servers. This new funtionaity will enable you to update your MGMT servers, update configs for Operational and DW DBs and MPs  easly with just one step versus in the past that you pretty much needed to update each component separately. 

To see more details on What's New click here.


Improvements and fixes 

Web Console fixes and changes

  • The State widget now supports sorting by health and age. 
  • Alert widgets can now be searched on by Date Time and sorted based upon age and severity.
  • The alert link in an email notification returned the following error message when it's browsed: “Your session with the Web Console server expired." This occured even though the user was not logged in to web console. You will now see the login page post this fix.
  • The Alert summary view window in SCOM Web console can now be expanded as required.
  • When the Alert state was changed to some custom state, these alerts were not displayed in the web console. Alerts that have custom resolution states are now displayed.
  • Some additional scrollbars appear if a customer widget is created in the web console or if the browser window size is reduced.
  • Improvement: SCOM views load and save much faster than previously.

One-Click Patching coming for SCOM 2019 Update Rollup 1 (UR1) 


I'm so glad this is finally happening as it is quite a challenge to perform the upgrades on all servers + the DB scripts. There are also lots of great improvements for the Storage Spaces Direct monitoring,  Azure MP, gMSA support. 

Based on the MS Ignite presentation the first UR should be coming up on Q1. WIll be posting more updates once the official announcement is published.
