Issue 2
The Set-SCOMLicense cmdlet fails if the management group evaluation expiration time-out has expired.

UNIX and Linux Monitoring (Management Pack Update)

Issue 1
The System Center Operations Manager agent may crash on Oracle Solaris root zones that are configured to use a range of dedicated CPUs.

Issue 2
