Microsoft released lots of updates for Operations Manager over the last couple of weeks. There are lots of updates to management packs, too many for me to go posting them at this time of night. Have a look on the catalogue and you’ll see them. Or check your console if you’re using OpsMgr 2007 R2.
Most importantly is KB971541, Update Rollup for Operations Manager 2007 Service Pack 1.
