Support for SQL 2017 with SCOM 1807

More details on upgrading Operations Manager 1807 database to SQL Server 2017 is available here.

XPlat log rotate


Under error scenarios, the SCX log fills up quickly, which eventually consumes all available free space on the system disk. As a result, the system becomes unresponsive unless the logs are cleaned up manually. To address this issue, we have introduced log rotate feature for SCX agent. This will help to rotate old logs of SCX agent and save disk space.

More details on Log rotation for Linux agent is available here.
