Installing the management pack

 

Topic Last Modified: 2010-05-14

There are two files required for the installation of the management pack: a common file and one specific to FPE. The common file is called Microsoft.ForefrontServer.Library.mp, and the FPE-specific file is called Microsoft.ForefrontServer.FPE.mp. These are "sealed" files (binaries) that cannot be edited (although many parameters can be overridden).

noteNote:
If you have installed a previous version of either the FPSP management pack or the FPE management pack (version 11.1.0269.0 or lower), you need to remove it before installing this management pack.

You import a management pack in order to install it.

To import the management packs in pre-Operations Manager 2007 R2 systems

  1. Log on to the Operations Manager 2007 server with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrator role.
  2. Select and download the setup package from the Microsoft System Center Pack Catalog to the desktop. The setup package is called "Forefront Protection for Exchange Server Management Pack.msi".
  3. Run the downloaded .msi setup package in order to extract the two .mp files: Microsoft.ForefrontServer.Library.mp, and Microsoft.ForefrontServer.FPE.mp.
  4. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to System Center Operations Manager 2007, and then click Operations Console.
  5. In the Operations Manager 2007 console, click the Administration space.
    noteNote:
    If you have installed a previous version of either the FPSP management pack or the FPE management pack (version 11.1.0269.0 or lower), you need to remove it before installing this management pack.
  6. Right-click the Management Packs node and select Import Management Packs or click Import Management Packs in the Actions pane.
  7. In the Select Management Packs to import dialog box, navigate to the location of the files.
  8. Select the Microsoft.ForefrontServer.Library.mp and the Microsoft.ForefrontServer.FPE.mp files, and then click Open.
  9. In the Import Management Packs dialog box, click Import to import the management packs.
  10. After the management pack has been imported, the Status changes to "Imported". Click Close to continue.

To import the management packs directly from the online catalog in Operations Manager 2007 R2 (or later) systems

  1. Log on to the Operations Manager 2007 server with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrator role.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to System Center Operations Manager 2007, and then click Operations Console.
  3. In the Operations Manager 2007 console, click the Administration space.
    noteNote:
    If you have installed a previous version of either the FPSP management pack or the FPE management pack (version 11.1.0269.0 or lower), you need to remove it before installing this management pack.
  4. Right-click the Management Packs node and select Import Management Packs or click Import Management Packs in the Actions pane.
  5. In the Select Management Packs dialog box, click Add, and then select Add from catalog to download and install management packs directly from the online catalog.
  6. In the Select Management Packs from Catalog dialog, in the Find field, enter "Forefront", and then click Search to search for all Forefront management packs.
  7. Expand Forefront, and then, in the Forefront Protection 2010 node, select Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server and, if it has not yet been installed, Forefront Protection 2010 Core Library. Click Add.
  8. When you have selected all the required management packs, click OK.
  9. In the Select Management Packs dialog box, click Install to import the management packs.
  10. After the management pack has been imported, the Status changes to "Imported". Click Close.

After you have imported them, management packs appear in the Administration space, in the Management Packs list.

For more information about importing management packs, refer to the product help and documentation at the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager TechCenter.

When the management packs have been successfully installed, a folder structure is created in FPE. For more information, see About the folder structure.

You should now finish the installation by deploying agents (see Deploying agents) and configuring notifications (see “Configuring notifications”)
