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.
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.
While I was playing with Azure Site Recovery I had scenario where I needed to assign VMM User Role to the VMs that were being replicated to the replica site. To be more specific you have VMM server on Primary Site and another VMM server on Replica Site and you are using ASR to take care for the mapping and failover tasks.

A small update on this topic. If you do not want your customers to face error 0x800F0906 when they try to install .NET Fraemwork 3.5 on Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 I would suggest you to install and disable .net FRamework 3.5 feature with DISM prior syspreping your images. The following commands should do the work: Continue reading “Creating Azure-like Windows Server Images with System Center”
So after the release of 3.0 at the beginning of week there were some comments of desired features and bugs reported. I’ve sent those to Damian and as he is working on fast release cadence a new version is now ready to address those comment. Additionally we are including another friend and fellow MVP Cameron Fuller to the authors. We are now on version 3.0.1 with the following changes: Continue reading “Version 3.0.1 of THE MVP 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.
A lot of time has passed since I haven’t updated my script and Microsoft once again forced me to update it. Again they’ve decided to change something on their download pages. Thank you Microsoft for changing your websites so I can advance my PowerShell skills. The script is now version 2.5 and here are the changes: Continue reading “Version 2.5 of My Script to Download All SCOM Management Packs with PowerShell”
