Issues that the hotfix package fixesThis hotfix package fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
Issue 1When you upgrade an Operations Manager agent computer from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008, the Health Service does not start on the computer. This issue occurs because the upgrade removes the certificate store in which the Health Service includes its certificate for secure storage data encryption. When the secure storage manager component of the Health Service initializes, it fails if there is a certificate serial number that is set, but the store does not exist.
Issue 2The Operations Manager Web Console does not display pages correctly because of changes in User Access Control (UAC) in Windows Server 2008. You may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
Issue 3After you upgrade a computer that performs the Operations Manager Management Server role from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008, the Operations Manager performance counters are not registered.

Additional information and known issues
After you do an in-place upgrade from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 on a computer that is running an Operations Manager 2007 role or an Essentials 2007 role, reports do not display in the Operations Manager console or in the Essentials Administrator console.
Resolution for Issue 1
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
Operations Manager 2007 or Essentials 2007 may fail during installation when the software tries to enumerate the installed SQL Server databases.
Cause of Issue 2
This issue can occur if the Windows Server 2008 Windows Internal Database feature is enabled. This dependent feature is enabled when any one of the following features is enabled:
In the Services.msc snap-in, locate and then start the s Windows Internal Database (MICROSOFT##SSEE) service. Then, reinstall Operations Manager 2007 or Essentials 2007.
An in-place upgrade of Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 will be blocked if PowerShell V1.0 (KB926139) is installed.
Workaround for Issue 3
To work around this issue, follow these steps:
When you install the SQL Server 2005 management pack, you receive a "Script or executable failed to run" alert for the DiscoverSQL2005DB.vbs script for database instance MICROSOFT##SSEE.
Cause of Issue 4
This issue occurs when the Windows Server 2008 Internal Database Feature is enabled. The associated Windows service (Windows Internal Database (MICROSOFT##SSEE)) is configured for manual startup. This behavior causes the SQL Server database engine discovery to fail.
Workaround for Issue 4
We recommend that you exclude this Windows Server 2008 internal SQL Server database from discovery. To do this, follow these steps:
When you open the Operations Console or the Web Console on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, you are asked for authentication when User Access Control (UAC is enabled)
Workaround for Issue 5
Open the Operations Console by using the "Run as administrator" option to open the Administrator console. Run Internet Explorer by using the "Run as administrator" option, and then provide the Web Console URL.
You may receive an error message when you open the Windows events log on a monitored Windows Server 2008 cluster. This issue prevents the Operations Manager 2007 SP1 agent from monitoring some Virtual Server installations that are running in a Windows Server 2008 cluster.
