Today I was able to release an update to the SQL Server DB Mirroring Management Pack.
The update doesn’t bring any new features but fixes a potential issue on larger management groups which would lead to discoveries failing. In order to work around this I have altered the Powershell discovery scripts such that they do no longer make use of any SCOM console cmdlets. Instead direct SDK .NET calls are being used. I recommend to update existing installations specifically if you are using management group connectors, the Exchange 2010 correlation engine or other custom MPs which make use of SDK workflows.
Download of the management pack is available trough the SystemCenterCentral.com MP Catalog. You need to register but registration is free.
