For instructions about importing a management pack, see How to Import a Management Pack in Operations Manager 2007 (

You can use three Run As profiles when you configure this management pack. For more information, see “Run As Profiles in the AppFabric Management Pack” in this document.

After you have imported the Windows Server AppFabric Management Pack, complete the initial configuration process by creating a new management pack in which you store overrides and other customizations. For more information, see Create a New Management Pack for Customizations.

In order to discover AppFabric databases, agent-managed computers need to gather information about the SQL Database from other computers. If you are using agent-managed computers and are interested in AppFabric Database discovery, then you will need to enable the Agent Proxy setting. To do this, go to the Administration tab in the Operations Console, and select Administration, then Device Management, and then Agent Managed. For each agent computer that has AppFabric installed, select the computer, right-click the computer, select Properties, click the Security tab, and then select Allow this agent to act as a proxy and discover managed objects on other computer.

The AppFabric Management Pack relies heavily on Windows PowerShell scripts. For each agent-managed computer where AppFabric may be installed, please ensure that PowerShell’s ExecutionPolicy is set to RemoteSigned. To do this, open PowerShell as an administrator and run the following command: Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned.

In order for the AppFabric Management Pack to be able to discover an administrative computer, you must run the AppFabric Configuration Wizard on the administrative computer with the Administrator role selected for the cache. Running the Configuration Wizard sets registry values that are not essential for the performance of the cache cluster, but the Management Pack relies on these registry values.
