Control when Advisor MPs are downloaded
We need to control when Advisor MPs are introduced to our environment to prevent possible outages during production business hours. It would be nice to set a maintenance windows to control when changes are introduces. It would also be beneficial to be able to introduce the MPs to pre-Prod prior to Prod environments.
Hi, we are discussing this internally.
Today you have a way to do this, by overriding the rules that perform MP/IP download and import – there is an override MP here http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2015/02/06/notice-upcoming-url-change-for-opsmgr-reporting-to-opinsights.aspx
- you could keep them turned off in PROD and leave them enabled in QA/TEST – once you see a new MP has been updated in the test environment, you can remove the override in prod/let the update run/then block it again.
We are determining how to make this more polished.
