Ops Manager: MP Viewer

Last week, Boris Yanushpolsky released MPViewer 1.6, which added exporting to Excel functionality. However, a programming bug caused the MPViewer to not be able to view the Exchange 2007 (also known as Exchange 12) MP in HTML (http://blogs.technet.com/stefan_stranger/archive/2008/06/25/goaaaal-mpviewer-with-export-to-excel.aspx), a feature Boris added last October.

Boris has corrected the issue and added some additional new features while he was at it – including frequency for performance viewers and breaking out monitors by type. You can get version 1.7 at http://blogs.msdn.com/boris_yanushpolsky/archive/2008/06/25/mpviewer-1-7-now-works-with-latest-e12-mp.aspx.

The MPViewer, a free utility (and not officially supported by Microsoft) displays what’s in a management pack before importing it. Boris posted the earliest versions of the MPViewer in October 1007 (http://blogs.msdn.com/boris_yanushpolsky/archive/2007/10/10/what-s-in-my-management-pack.aspx), and has been making numerous enhancements to it.

You can download Version 1.7 from http://blogs.msdn.com/boris_yanushpolsky/archive/2008/06/25/mpviewer-1-7-now-works-with-latest-e12-mp.aspx.
