Getting Started

適用於: Operations Manager 2007

This section describes the actions you take before you import the management pack. It also contains information about creating new management packs for customizations. No additional configuration is required after the management pack is imported.

Before You Import the Management Pack

Before you import the Windows Server 2003 Cluster Management Pack, take the following actions:

  • Import the Windows Server 2003 Base Operating System Management Pack.

  • Enable the Agent Proxy on all agents which are installed on servers that are members of a cluster.

To enable the Agent Proxy setting

  1. Open the Operations Console, and then click the Administration button.

  2. In the Administration pane, click Agent Managed.

  3. Double-click an agent in the list.

  4. Click the Security tab.

  5. Select Allow this agent to act as a proxy and discover managed objects on other computers.

  6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each agent that is installed on a clustered server.

If you have installed the Windows Server 2003 Cluster MP 6.0.6277.0, remove the following management pack files prior to importing this management pack:

  • Microsoft.Windows.2003.Cluster.Management.Monitoring

  • Microsoft.Windows.2003.Cluster.Management.Library

  • Microsoft.Windows.Cluster.Management.Monitoring

  • Microsoft.Windows.Cluster.Management.Library

Files to Download

To monitor Windows Server 2003 clusters, you must first download the Windows Server 2003 Cluster Management Pack from the Management Pack Catalog, see "System Center Operations Manager 2007 Catalog" ( There will be a single installer that will extract all management pack files.

Create a New Management Pack for Customizations

Most vendor management packs are sealed so that you cannot change any of the original settings in the management pack file. However, you can create customizations, such as overrides or new monitoring objects, and save them to a different management pack. By default, Operations Manager 2007 saves all customizations to the default management pack. As a best practice, you should instead create a separate management pack for each management pack you deploy.

Creating a new management pack for storing overrides has the following advantages:

  • It simplifies the process of exporting customizations that were created in your test and pre-production environments to your production environment. For example, instead of exporting a default management pack that contains customizations from multiple management packs, you can export just the management pack that contains customizations of a single management pack.

  • It allows you to delete the original management pack without first needing to delete the default management pack. A management pack that contains customizations is dependent on the original management pack. This dependency requires you to delete the management pack with customizations before you can delete the original management pack. If all of your customizations are saved to the default management pack, you must delete the default management pack before you can delete an original management pack.

  • It is easier to track and update customizations to individual management packs.

To Create a New Management Pack for Customizations

  1. Open the Operations Manager 2007 Operations Console, and then click the Administration button.

  2. Right-click Management Packs, and then click Create New Management Pack.

  3. Enter a name (for example, Cluster Management Pack customizations), and then click Next.

  4. Click Create.
