About the Bootstrap Discovery Tool (Beta)
Designed to fix the problem of slow SCOM discoveries, this simple tool allows you to inject full SCOM agent registration details and pre-populate discovery data before the agent has even started. The result is that you can start receiving health and performance data within seconds (not hours) of an agent starting on a brand new VM. This is handy in any circumstance, but particularly so for dynamic cloud environments and DevOps / Continuous Deployment scenarios.
You can download the technical documentation for this tool here.
Please note that the SCOM Bootstrap Discovery Tool MP is currently in Beta and so we would advise proceeding with the normal precautions you would apply when using any software in a Beta / pre-release stage.
