    Why does the MM Mode Scheduler MP have a requirement for R2 UR2? Can it be used with SP1 and the latest UR?

    We are running Windows Server 2016, and SCOM 2012 R2. When we attempt to install either v2 or v7 of the Maintenance Mode scheduler, it informs us as follows:
    “SCOM 2012 MM Scheduler cannot be installed on systems with IIS version lower than 7.5”, then the install fails.

    The intended server is running IIS

    Any ideas?
