I am about to upgrade my SQL management pack to the version. Has anyone tried this yet I am curious what will happen to the SQL perspectives when I do this will I need too update them in anyway?
I opened a ticket with support and their advice was not to install the new MP at this time. It will break dashboards as well as VADA. The reason being that this is a brand new MP and not an upgrade so it changes everything on the SCOM side from object type to counters so Squared UP is not referencing the correct objects. That was the answer I was expecting as I read the manual for the MP. Now that said this is the only SQL MP that MS is supporting going forward and it was released end of April so I am hoping we see an update from Squared UP soon that addresses the issues and then we can move forward with the new install. I have a new SCOM install going on and would love to convert over to it but we are using VADA so converting at this time is not a good idea for us.
If you have any experience of the bonkers new classes in the 2017 MP it is essentially the same as that.
• SQL Server 2016 DB Engine
• SQL Server 2012 DB Engine
• SQL Server 2008 DB Engine
• SQL Server 2016 DB
• SQL Server 2012 DB
• SQL Server 2008 DB
• MSSQL on Windows: Local DB Engine
• MSSQL on Windows: DB Engine
• MSSQL on Windows: Local DB
So while I have not tried it in v4 you can imagine it will all stop things working with perspectives
