Uninstalling Cross Platform Management Packs and Agents

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

When you no longer need a management pack, you can delete it by using the Operations console. When you delete a management pack, all the settings and thresholds that are associated with it are removed from Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2. The associated .mp or .xml file is not deleted from the hard disk of the management server. You can delete a management pack only if you have first deleted dependent management packs.

There are three ways to uninstall the cross platform management packs and agents.

  1. Delete selected UNIX or Linux system management packs from the Operations Manager 2007 R2 console.

  2. Delete an agent from Operations Manager 2007 R2, and uninstall the agent from the monitored computer. It will be uninstalled first from the UNIX or Linux computer.

  3. Delete the agent from Operations Manager without uninstalling it on the UNIX or Linux host.

Use the following procedures to uninstall agents.
