  • All workflows are implemented using PowerShell to improve overall functionality for this Management Pack.
  • Failover Relationships are now a supported configuration that is being discovered and monitored by the new 2012 Management Pack.
  • Discovery and Monitoring of a DHCP Cluster installation.
  • Scopes, super scopes utilization is being monitored based on events that provide 80% and 100% usage.
  • Utilization of scopes based on policies, client packet drop and residual IP addresses range monitoring.
