    Hi Kris Bash,

    Thanks a lot for you help in resolving my management pack issue in monitoring the SNMP device in various scenarios and suggesting various logical options.

    Your knowledge in SCOM-SNMP (definitely you are an master of many stuff) is of great help to many people. Its from my heart (not false praise), I can find you are the only person who is helping to resolve many people’s SCOM-SNMP issues (whenever I google for SCOM-SNMP issues and solutions) with quick solution.

    Thanks a lot for your timely help 🙂
