ODI-2070 Rename Microsoft Opspacks
With the aim of maintaining consistency across Opsview Monitor, this Microsoft® monitoring-related Opspack and related Host Template and Service Checks have been renamed.
|Original Host Template Name||New Host Template Name|
|OS - Windows Server 2008 WMI - Base||OS - Windows WMI - Base Agentless|
This won't have any negative impact on your system when you manually install this opspack or are upgrading to Opsview Monitor 6.0 (November 2018 release). You will see both sets of Host Templates in the system. Nevertheless, to avoid confusion, we recommend removing the templates carried over from a previous Opsview Monitor version.
