Get-SCOMManagementPacks 4.4

I’ve just released the latest version of this script you can find at GitHub. There is just a small fix provided by Lynne Taggart in this release. Basically Microsoft changed the layout of their download page once again so we needed a slightly different logic to pull the MP version and publish date information.

Open Sourcing Download All Microsoft SCOM MPs Script

I am open sourcing download the script that I’ve created for downloading all Microsoft SCOM MPs. Open sourcing is meant to be a joke of course. It is a script with code that is available for viewing and changing as whatever serves your purpose since its creation. The difference is that I am moving to GitHub so it will be easier for contribution by all. There is not new version but you can find all code here. The TechNet gallery page will be left as placeholder but will not contain the script anymore. You can find a link to GitHub repository there as well.  I hope this change is welcome.

This blog post is to inform you that several MPs have been updated with some important fixes/features. You can find all the information here.

My personal best improvement is:

  • Add Task launch PowerShell session on the remote machine for All Computers

Version 3.0 of Damian’s and My Script to Download All SCOM Management Packs with PowerShell

So my good friend Damian Flynn and fellow MVP has decided to bring this script to another level by making more like PowerShell module than only script. The result is cleaner code and some parts can be reused. You can find the new version here. Some of the changes include:

  • Refactored the script to a powershell module, and split the code into functions to ease support and prepare for some automation 😉
  • added Write-CMTraceLog – to enabled it execute   Get-SCOMManagementPacks –CMTrace
  • removed two download links that are incorrectly gathered at the beginning

I hope you will like these improvements. Leave any feedback on the TechNet Gallery page. This is why community rocks. Expect more from Damian on this topic.
