Update Rollup 6 for System Center 2016 Operations Manager

Applies to: Microsoft System Center 2016 Operations Manager

Introduction


This article describes the issues that are fixed in Update Rollup 6 for Microsoft System Center 2016 Operations Manager. This article also contains the installation instructions for this update.

Improvements and issues that are fixed


  • Application pool crashes and SharePoint application crashes because of APM agent and the profiler are now fixed. These occurred because the profiler was always on. This issue is fixed by disabling the profiler by default and enabling it only when APM is configured.

    Note If you’re using APM, restart IIS after you deploy the patches.
  • Improved logging to display error messages and suggest that you check performance counters when PdhExpandWildCardPath fails.
  • Fixed: Session Events tab in Application Diagnostics web console doesn't display any data.
  • Fixed: Scheduled Maintenance Mode doesn't work in an availability group that uses SQL Always-On configuration. In case of a failover to a secondary node, the Maintenance Mode Schedules that are created on the primary node don't run. This has now been fixed. For details, see the "Enabling Schedule Maintenance Mode with SQL Always ON" section.
  • Updated fix: The Get-SCOMGroup cmdlet is slow to query large (more than 2,000) groups. A previous fix has been improved for faster querying of any number of groups.
  • Fixed: Users could not edit the Maintenance Schedule in the SCOM console if all the objects were removed. The schedule can now be edited. However, it cannot be saved unless it contains at least one object.
  • Fixed: SCX cannot connect with Linux machine if the KEX algorithms are configured as any of the following: ecdh-sha2-nistp256, diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256, or diffie-hellman-group14-sha256.
  • Fixed: Using MI APIs causes MonitoringHost.exe to crash. This event is logged in the Application log, but no crash events are reported in the Operations Manager event log. After this fix, MonitoringHost doesn’t crash even if the useMIAPI registry key is enabled.
  • OMS (now Azure Log Analytics) connection onboarding wizard isupdated to communicate with the new APIs. This is because the OMS services were moved to the Azure Portal (link), and also because of the planned retirement of the OMS portal. This change will not affect any existing connection to OMS. However, for new connections or to reconfigure existing connections, the relevant management packs that are bundled together with this update rollup must be imported.
  • This update rollup creates a new "omi" user (system account).
  • XPlat support matrix changes:
    • SLES 10 is not supported.
    • CentOS 5 is not supported.
    • AIX 6.x is not supported.

Enabling Schedule Maintenance Mode with SQL Always ON


The Scheduled Maintenance Mode feature was shipped in Operations Manager 2016 RTM. Therefore, customers have Operations Manager deployments that have SQL always ON enabled for high availability. Multiple customers and blogs have reported that the Schedule Maintenance Mode capability does not work together with SQL Always On when the SQL Server failover occurs.

Schedules that are created by having SQL Always ON enabled were inaccessible when SQL Server fails over to another server.

The fix for this problem enables the schedules to work without any issues even in a SQL Server failover scenario.

We have resolved this problem in the following manner:

  • Schedules that were already been created before this fix is deployed will also start working without any issues even in SQL Server failover scenarios.

    Note Existing schedules that have been created on the current server that is running SQL Server will be migrated. To migrate the existing schedules that are created on another server, follow the installation instructions.
  • Any schedule that is created after you deploy this update together with the required configurations would be accessible even if the server that is running SQL Server fails over to a different server.

Verify that the required permissions are granted on all servers


  • The accounts that are under the “Operational Database Account” profile should have “SQLAgentOperatorRole” permission on the MSDB database.

  • If any accounts that are under the “Operational Database Account” profile do not have access to the “SQLAgentOperatorRole” permission on the MSDB database, assign the “SQLAgentOperatorRole” permission on the MSDB database to each account that is under the "Operational Database Account" profile.

  • If you do not have any accounts under the “Operational Database Account” profile, accounts that are available under the "Default Action Account" profile should have the “SQLAgentOperatorRole” permission on the MSDB database.

Installation instructions


To install this update rollup, follow these steps:

  1. Install the UR6 patch (deploying Management Server and agent components is mandatory).
  2. Run the Update_rollup_mom_db.sql SQL script on the server that is running SQL Server.

    Note Existing schedules are migrated to the new design only one time as part of the update rollup deployment. Migration of existing schedules will not occur again when you run the same script.


Guidelines

  • Any failures that occur when existing schedules are migrated are captured in the following database table:

    [OperationsManager].[dbo].[MaintenanceModeSchedulesMigrationLogs]
  • Existing schedules that have been created on a SQL Server-based server that is not the primary server are not migrated to the new design after you run the Update_rollup_mom_db.sql script. Corresponding failures are logged in the database table that is mentioned in the previous item.
  • To migrate existing schedules to the new design, fail over your current database to the specific server that is running SQL Server, and run the following scripts against the Operations Manager database.

    To migrate a specific schedule to the new design:

EXEC [dbo].[p_MaintenanceScheduleMigrateSchedule] '<ScheduleIDOftheMMSchedule>'

Example:

EXEC [dbo].[p_MaintenanceScheduleMigrateSchedule] '1A6917C6-999C-E811-837B-02155DC77B3F'

To migrate all the existing schedules in the specific SQL server to the new design:

Delete [OperationsManager].[dbo].[MaintenanceModeSchedulesMigrationLogs]
EXEC [dbo].[p_MaintenanceScheduleMigrateExistingSchedules]

  • You can run the scripts that are mentioned in the previous item on different servers that are running SQL Server to migrate existing schedules that are created on different servers.
  • To prevent any similar issues from occurring, you can delete the existing schedule and re-create that same schedule after you apply the fix.

Note After you deploy this fix, maintenance schedules might be triggered and have a maximum delay of 5 minutes. This maximum delay is configurable by overriding the “Maintenance Mode” rule. The default value is 5 minutes to avoid causing a large performance decrease on the system.
