An updated Management Pack (MP) for System Center Operations Manager 2007 and 2012 snuck through the Microsoft download site late last week. The MP provides the ability to discover and monitor database engine instances, databases, and SQL Server agents, and supports SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, and 2012 versions.

The MP delivers 26 new monitors and rules, but also includes a nifty, new dashboard, giving the OpsMgr admin access to a summary overview for some of the most critical SQL Server components.

This is a big release, with lots of new and additional features.
