I noticed these links in a recent OpsMgr Newsletter that Cameron Fuller had shared and wanted to share a few correlations I made with Kevin Holmans findings as well as WMI Handle Leak in Performance Data.

It appears that Kevin Holman suggests installing UR1 immediately after installing SP1 as there are some noted fixes in KB2785682.

Two that strike me as interesting is:

1. Issue 3 in KB2784734 applying to Windows 8 – PowerShell Module causes memory leak also shown below in the excerpt from the KB Article.

· Does this not apply to Server 2012 for some reason and why not? This would seem to be similar in the OS Installation of Windows 8 and Server 2012, since most Hotfixes like this in Windows 7 also related to Server 2008 and potentially Server 2008 R2 for the most part.

2. WMI Handle Leak in Performance Data (KB2790831) applying to Windows 8 and Server 2012

· Obviously the suggestion here is to apply the KB to any Server with the OpsMgr Agent and the MG Components since I will be utilizing Server 2012 for the DB\DW\RMSe\MS\WC\RS Roles, so I will be installing this.

Operations Manager (KB2784734)

Issue 1
Agentless Exception Monitoring (AEM) in Operations Manager may provoke an increase in reporting threads and choke points.
Issue 2
After the Alert Attachment Management Pack (Microsoft.SystemCenter.AlertAttachment.mpb) is imported, you create a dashboard that contains an alert widget. When you click an alert, the Operations Manager console may crash.
Issue 3
When a Windows PowerShell module uses the Monitoringhost.exe process on an x86-based client that is running Windows 8, more than 800 megabytes (MB) of memory may be consumed.

Issue 4
After an application domain is created, adding another application domain may be unsuccessful..
