Citrix SCOM Management Packs – Ready, Steady, GO!
SCOM Management Packs have been a part of the Citrix product family since the acquisition of Comtrade Management Packs back in January 2016. Since then, SCOM Management Packs have been released along with the Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop Current Releases (CR) each quarter.
What does it mean for Citrix SCOM Management Packs to be released with XenApp and XenDesktop LTSR? Primarily, it means that, as other Citrix products like License Server or Receiver, the SCOM Management Packs are compatible with the XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR components they monitor.
You can update the baseline LTSR components, like StoreFront or Provisioning Services, only with LTSR Cumulative Updates (CU). On the other hand, each compatible component has a minimum version defined for use within the LTSR component, which you can later update to the latest CR. As the SCOM Management Packs are compatible components, they are not eligible for LTSR benefits such as extended lifecycle or fix-only CUs.
For an overview of LTSR, CR and compatible components see XenApp, XenDesktop, and XenServer Servicing Options (LTSR) FAQ.
