SQL Server MP – No More SQL2005

Microsoft just released a new CTP version of the SQL Server Management Pack 6.3.7, that includes new bug fixes and some new features specific to SQL Server 2016. Let’s download updated MP package and review what’s new together!

The most important update that matters for all enterprise customers is removing monitoring for SQL Server 2005 from the SQL Server Management Pack package.If you already imported older versions of the SQL MP into your SCOM management group, you still can monitor your SQL 2005 deployments, but SQL2005 MP is removed from SQL MP package and it’s not supported anymore. Please, keep this fact in mind: it might be a good reason to migrate your SQL2005 databases to a newer version (at least SQL2008 or 2008R2).
