Details on the Windows Server Operating System update which I was most interested in are  listed below:

 

Changes in Version 6.0.7043.0

The June 2013 update (version 6.0.7043.0) of the Windows Server Operating System Beta Management Pack included the following changes:

· Added support for Windows Server 2012 R2 monitoring.

· Added filter to discovery for Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

· Fixed MaxConcurrentAPI issues.

· Changed Cluster Discovery to only discover volumes and resource type “Physical Disk”.

· Added performance rules and reports for Windows Server 2012 R2 that target Windows Server 2012 R2 Operating System.

 

The MaxConcurrentAPI issues item hopefully addresses the ReSearch This kb article that we have available at: http://www.systemcentercentral.com/research-this-kb-max-concurrent-api-reached-alert/. I hope to test this out later this week for confirmation so post if you see that this works with the new version of the management pack!
