Import a Management Pack in System Center Essentials

Updated: March 10, 2009

Applies To: Windows Essential Business Server

To import a management pack into System Center Essentials, use the Import Management Packs action in the System Center Essentials console. You may need to do this to monitor an application, service, or device that is not installed by default in Windows EBS.

After you import a management pack into System Center Essentials, it immediately begins monitoring a specific application, service, or device. No additional configuration is required.

noteNote
The monitoring data that is generated by a management pack that you import appears only in the System Center Essentials console. It does not appear in the Windows EBS Administration Console.

For information about the management packs that are available from Microsoft and from non-Microsoft publishers, see the catalog at the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=86411).
