I had the same problem some weeks ago and solved this with the following method:

1. Install the MS Vista collector:

File: Microsoft_Vista_and_Win_2008_Svr_v4.4.11_MSVista_MSWIN2k8Svr_EN

2. Run the collector updater for SSIM 4.8


3. Run LiveUpdate on the MS Vista Collector

After theese steps the collector looks like the WS Management Collector (Product ID etc.)

Hello Osm31, 

You have to install MS Vista Collector to support Windows Server 2008.

We need to get latest information from authorised sources regarding availability of WS Management event collector. Last i had heard was team was working on fixing certain last minute issues in update collector package.

Hi All,

I am currently using SSIM ver.4.7 and need to know if I can go ahead for upgrading to ver.4.8?
Is there any upgrade document or best practise guide to upgrade from 4.7.3 to 4.7.8.
I found one to upgrade from 4.6. to 4.7 but unable to find the one I need.

Thanks in Advance...
