Handy Operations Manager 2012 Control Panel applet

I’ve started to evaluate the recently released SCOM 2012 Beta.

I took a look at a new Agent side feature, a Operations Manager Agent Control Panel applet, to be found under  the ‘System and Security ‘ node:

When the applet is opened you see a list of all configured Management Groups for the Agent:

Here you can Add/Edit/Remove Management Groups.

In the ‘Edit…’ Mode you can change the Action Account easily.

You can also enable/disable the ‘Automatically update management group assignments from AD DS.

When disabling this the applet will ask you for confirmation to remove the AD Assigned Management groups:

When manually adding a Management Group, you can easily configure settings in one windows as following:

In short: A handy new Agent feature, that enables you to quickly and clearly configure Management Group assignments on an Ops Mgr Agent.
