Windows 8 client Management Pack may appear after all

In a reversal that took only two days, Microsoft has announced that a Windows 8 client Management Pack for Operations Manager 2012 SP1 may get Microsoft development support after all.

On September 5th, 2012, it was originally stated that…

There are no plans to ship a Management Pack for monitoring Windows 8 client machines.

But, then on September 7th, 2012, an update to this statement was posted…

We are reevaluating this and investigating building a Windows 8 client MP.  Stay tuned!

So, yes…stay tuned.  There were quite a few grumblings in the OpsMgr customer crowd when it was announced that an MP would not be created, so it’s great to see Microsoft step back and reconsider.
