Consider the following scenario:
You have some management groups in a tiered configuration in a Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) environment.
You create some connectors on the management groups, and then you add the connectors to the tiers.
After the OpsMgr SDK Service restarts, the management groups and connectors are reconnected.
In this scenario, the connection settings are configured incorrectly. Therefore, you may encounter some unexpected behavior. For example, when you call the GetMonitoringAlerts or GetMonitoringAlertsForTiers method, the connector instance of the local management group does not return all alerts. Additionally, the incorrect management groups are returned for these alerts.
This fix is contained within the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 Service Pack 1 update. To see a list of issues are fixed and how to obtain the cumulative rollup, refer to this article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
