    Does anybody know the download link to the VHD’s for SCOM2016 TP5? Simply downloading the VHD is a good way to save time if you want to simply start using the product as opposed to installing it….

    No. MSDN currently does not offer this, last time I checked. Also, it is never a bad idea to learn and understand how products are installed and configured. =)
