Several MPs Updated
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.
