Issue 1Assume that you use multiple process monitors that target the same computer or group to monitor several processes. The processes have the same name and different process argument filters. In this situation, the processes are monitored incorrectly in some template instances. Therefore, System Center may not detect problems that occur on the monitored processes.
Note After the update imports the updated Microsoft.Unix.Process.Library.mpb file, you must edit and save the existing Process Template instances for the update to take effect.
