The Case of the Missing SQL databases

For those doing dashboards and reporting, we have come to depend on base classes that role up different versions of classes in SCOM. Microsoft seems to have broken than rule for SQL Server 2014 and beyond…

I only have 2 versions of SQL Server in my lab at this time, SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014.

SQL Database class, which only shows SQL Server 2012…

SQL Server 2014 DB class

Not exactly!

As it turns out, the SQL Server 2014 management pack no longer depends on the SQL Server Core Library, which explains things. I can understand the break from the legacy versions of SQL, which have gone out of support, but there is still a large population of SQL Server 2012 out there which will require additional effort to consolidate into reports that contain legacy and SQL Server 2014 databases.
