Version 2.0 of My Script to Download All SCOM Management Packs with PowerShell


Not so long ago I’ve wrote a script that can download all SCOM Management Packs released by Microsoft. Unfortunately Microsoft has decided to change the interface of their download pages and didn’t asked me for approval Smile. Because of that the script stopped to work as it was dependent on the layout of the download web pages. I’ve decided to give it a try to fix the script. Looked at the layout of the new download page. Change a bit the logic and some lines and viola the script is working again.

You can grab Version 2.0 of the script from TechNet Gallery or from systemcentercentral.com.

P.S. The Script requires PowerShell 3.0.

  1. Great Script. I Notice the last two MPs are not real, perhaps filter them away?, like:
    $mpname = $mp.’Management Pack’
    if($mpname -eq ‘Microsoft Download Center’ -or $mpname -eq ‘Drivers’){return}

    The MPs I see are:
    MP Name: Microsoft Download Center
    MP Link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx
    Confirmation Link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx

    MP Name: Drivers
    MP Link: http://www.microsoft.com/download/driver.aspx?q=driver
    Confirmation Link: http://www.microsoft.com/download/driver.aspx?q=driver
