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.

You will find all information and new version on Github.

Simple – there was some limitation on running runbooks in Azure Automation and that limitation was significantly  increased which pushed me to change the title. Let me explain in detail what was the limitation, what has happened and what is that strategy I had that you might still need and it is always good to implement.
