Issues that the hotfix package fixes
This hotfix package fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
When 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.
The 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:
- The Web Console does not open.
- The My Workspace page does not display.
- Performance views do not display.
After 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.

- OpsMgr Health Service (HEALTHSERVICE)
- OpsMgr SDK Service (OMSDK)
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:
- Open Microsoft SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.
- In Report Server Virtual Directory, select Apply default settings, and then click Apply.
- In Report Manager Virtual Directory, select Apply default settings, and then click Apply

- Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager (Inetmgr.exe), and then follow these steps:
- Select the Operations Manager 2007 Web Console site from the Sites node.
- Double-click the Handler Mappings icon in the Features view, and then look for a Microsoft .NET 1.1 mapping for the following file name extension:
- Note the path of the executable, and then delete that mapping. For example, you may have to delete a mapping that resembles the following path:
- In the Actions pane, click Add Script Map, and then type *.aspx in the Request path value box.
- Next to the Executable value box, click the ellipsis button (...) to locate the following file:
