Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Service Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Service Manager

For the System Center Operations Manager configuration item (CI) connector to function correctly, you have to import a set of management packs into System Center 2012 – Service Manager. The management packs and the Windows PowerShell script that you need to import the management packs are in the Service Manager installation folder. The default installation folder is \Program Files\Microsoft System Center\Service Manager 2012\Operations Manager Management Packs and System Center 2012 - Operations Manager Management Packs. Use the following procedures to import the management packs into Service Manager.

To import Operations Manager 2007 management packs for an Operations Manager CI connector

  1. On the computer that is hosting the Service Manager management server, on the Windows desktop, click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows PowerShell 1.0, right click Windows PowerShell, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. In Windows PowerShell, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    Get-ExecutionPolicy
    
  3. Review the output and note the current execution policy setting.

  4. Type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each command:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
    
    Set-Location \"Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\Service Manager\Operations Manager Management Packs"
    
  5. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    .\installOMMPs.ps1
    

    This command starts the Windows PowerShell script that installs the management packs. Wait for the management packs to be imported.

  6. Change the execution policy back to the value that you noted in step 3. For example, type the following command to set the execution policy to Restricted, and then press ENTER:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy Restricted
    
  7. To exit Windows PowerShell, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    Exit
