Yesterday UR2 for System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager was released - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2929891


Included in this update are updated widgets that allow you to create richer dashboard visualizations within Operations Manager. The list of widgets now available are described here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/24133.operations-manager-dashboard-widget...


To install these make sure you follow the KB update instructions to import the required MPBs


(Import the following management packs:



  1. Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.mpb

  2. Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.Internal.mpb

  3. Microsoft.SystemCenter.TFSWISynchronization.mpb, which has the following dependency:


  1. Microsoft.SystemCenter.AlertAttachment.mpb, which should be installed from the SCOM 2012 R2 RTM media.



  • Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Library.mpb

    Note Management packs are included in the Server component updates in the following path:


%SystemDrive%\Program Files\System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\Management Packs for Update Rollups)


The attached document also contains some scenario examples of how to use the Widgets.



Update 04/25/2014 : For those reporting that the widgets did not appear ensure that the MPB (Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Component.Library.mpb) imports successfully as we have seen cases where this fails on first import. If it fails please retry.
