Introduction

This article describes the issues that are fixed in Update Rollup 6 for Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager. Additionally, this article contains the installation instructions for Update Rollup 6 for System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager.

Issues that are fixed in this update rollup

Operations Manager

  • The "Remove-DisabledClassInstance" Windows PowerShell command times out without completing

    The cmdlet takes lots of time to complete in large SCOM installations and sometimes times out without completing its work. This is fixed by optimizing the query that is used for deletion. 

  • Duplicate closed alerts

    The Find option in a message view sometimes gives results of the current search together with the results from previous searches. This occurs because of an update issue in the grid and is fixed so that values are displayed that correspond only to the current search. 

  • Topology widget objects lose location when they are opened in a console that has a different locale and decimal format

    Topology widgets that are created in one locale but are viewed from another locale display an incorrect location because of the widget's inability to interpret locale-specific formatting. This issue is fixed, and users can now create and view topology widgets from different locales.

  • WebConsole Details widget does not display anything

    When you click a message in the Alert widget, the details of the message are not displayed in the details widget on WebConsole. This issue is fixed by fixing the XAML page of the details widget. The XAML page was preventing the data from being displayed on the page.

  • Top 10 Performance widgets (WebConsole) are sometimes empty

    The Top 10 Performance widgets (WebConsole) are sometimes empty because of a performance issue. This issue was fixed in Update Rollup 3 through an MPB file that requires a manual import. Because many users missed importing the MPB, a fix is included in this update rollup as an SQL query update.

  • Problem with decoding SCOM trace log files

    Sometimes Operations Manager trace logs do not decode but generate the error "Unknown(X ): GUID=XXX (No Format Information found)." This occurs because the latest TMF files that contain formatting information for the related traces are missing. All TMF files are updated to make sure that traces are formatted correctly.

Unix/Linux Management Pack

  • JEE: WebLogic 12.1.3 servers on Linux or Solaris are not discovered

    WebLogic 12cR1 Rel3 Java Application Servers that are installed on Linux and Solaris are not discovered.

    Note The UNIX or Linux agent must be updated after you install the Management Pack update to resolve this issue.

    Relevant log messages:

    /var/opt/microsoft/scx/scx.log

    2015-02-04T15:28:18,797Z
    Trace [scx.core.common.pal.system.appserver.appserverenumeration:379:15739:139715041470400] Weblogic process does not contain the 'platform.home' or 'weblogic.system.BootIdentityFile' commandline argument.

  • In rare cases, lots of omiagent processes may be observed on a UNIX or Linux computer

    If a single instance of data that is returned by an OMI provider is larger than 64 kilobytes (KB), the omiagent process becomes unresponsive, and additional omiagent processes are created. This issue can occur on a managed UNIX- or Linux-based computer if a rule or monitor returns an instance of data larger than 64 KB. This is most likely to be seen when a custom shell command or script rules return lots of data in StdOut.

    Note After you upgrade the Operations Manager UNIX/Linux agent to the version that is contained in this Management Pack update, an instance that exceeds 64 KB will be truncated and will generate the following message in the scx.log file. You can use the log message to identify and change the workflow that is returning too much data.

    ExecuteCommand: Exceeded maximum output size for provider (64k), output truncated. Monitoring will not be reliable! Command executed: "



  • The SSLv3 protocol cannot be disabled in OpenSSL as used by the UNIX and Linux agents

    With this update, you can now disable the SSLv3 protocol for the Operations Manager UNIX and Linux agents. You can do this by adding a property to omiserver.conf (/etc/opt/microsoft/scx/conf). If SSLv3 is disabled, the UNIX and Linux agent will reject connections that cannot be negotiated by using TLS encryption. If SSLv3 is enabled (this is the default configuration), SSLv3 will be used only if TLS encryption cannot be negotiated.

    Property

    Description

    NoSSLv3=true|false

    Enable/Disables use of SSLv3

  • Some components are multilanguage, and the updates for these components are not localized.

  • You must run this update rollup as an administrator.

  • If you do not want to restart the computer after you apply the console update, close the console before you apply the update for the console role.

  • To start a new instance of Microsoft Silverlight, clear the browser cache in Silverlight, and then restart Silverlight.

  • Do not install this update rollup package immediately after you install the System Center 2012 R2 server. Otherwise, the Health Service state may not be initialized.

  • If User Account Control is enabled, run the .msp update files from an elevated command prompt.

  • You must have System Administrator rights on the database instances for the Operational Database and Data warehouse to apply updates to these databases.

  • To enable the web console fixes, add the following line to the %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\web.config file:

    <machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="3DES" decryption="3DES"/>

    Note Add the line under the <system.web> section, as described in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    911722 You may receive an error message when you access ASP.NET Web pages that have ViewState enabled after you upgrade from ASP.NET 1.1 to ASP.NET 2.0

  • The fix for the data warehouse BULK insert commands time out issue described in Update Rollup 1 for System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager adds a registry key that can be used to set the time-out value (in seconds) for the data warehouse BULK insert commands. These are the commands that insert new data into the data warehouse.

    Note This key must be manually added on any management server on which you want to override the default BULK insert command time out.

    Registry location:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Data Warehouse
    DWORD name: Bulk Insert Command Time Out Seconds
    DWORD Value: 40

    Note Set this value in seconds. For example, for a 40-second time-out, set this value to 40.


Supported installation orderWe recommend that you install this update rollup package by following these steps in the given order:

  1. Install the update rollup package on the following server infrastructure:

    • Management server or servers

    • Gateway servers

    • Web console server role computers
