About the folder structure


Applies to: Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint

Topic Last Modified: 2010-03-04

After you install the management packs, a folder structure is created in the Operations Manager 2007 Operations Console, under the Monitoring space. All folders are views of monitored items, except for those folders that contain subfolders (that is, only the lowest level folders view monitored items).

The top level folder is called Microsoft Forefront Server Protection 2010. It contains subfolders common to all Microsoft Forefront Protection Suite products (Alerts, Task Status, and Common), plus the Forefront Protection for SharePoint folder. The Forefront Protection for SharePoint folder contains subfolders that are specific to Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP). For more information about working with views, see “Working with views” and “How to view management pack details” in Appendix: Monitors and overrides for management packs.

This is the folder structure for the common elements and for Forefront Protection for SharePoint. All items not labeled "(folder)" contain views.
