Thank you Fabrizio! 

Hi @mmarinb - you are able to monitor Windows 7 clients using the built in MPs; however, it depends on how rich you want the monitoring to be. The MP posted will provide deeper insights, and sometimes they are hard to find. I would suggest a bookmark to use the MP Wiki as an option - I have posted it below.

  • Another option, you can also use the MP catalog built into SCOM and\or do a search for suggested MPs as the Agents are deployed and data is collected.
  • You can also interface with Log Analytics for more insights.
