Operations Console  

  • Get-SCOMGroup CmdLet in PowerShell not reflecting the updated name of a group .

  • Edited alert properties in the alert views not being reflected sometimes without switching views.

  • In high-load environments, when AlertUpdate data was put in the Pending send queue, there was an issue processing these and event 5204 would get logged which was causing the All-Management Resource Pool to go down.

  • Updating an existing Console Task would automatically switch the Task Target (class) to System entity instead of the one that was initially selected.

  • Edit an existing Active Directory Integration Failover Configuration when wanting to add or remove Management Servers in the Failover list.

  • The MP Reference Alias generator is case-sensitive now and will create only unique Aliases for Management packs.

Other Fixes:

  • Database Registry that was created for temporary usage after patch or upgrade installation in 2019UR3 is now being deleted.

  • There was a special scenario where APM would crash IIS Application Pools when W3WP was trying to load any type of managed DLL which was built as 64bit. These types of DLLs will no longer cause APM to crash the IIS Application Pool.

  • The Insecure Direct Object Reference Vulnerability issue related to APM websites

  • SNMP Traps sent through a proxy would not be received.

  • Network discovery failure for network devices with HSRP that do not have the AF_NET IP address.
