Create a New Management Pack for Customizations

更新日期: 2010年6月

適用於: Operations Manager 2007

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 sealed management pack that you want to customize.

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 preproduction environments to your production environment. For example, instead of exporting the 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.

  • You can delete the original management pack without first needing to delete the Default Management Pack. A management pack that contains customizations depends 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.

For more information about sealed and unsealed management packs, see Management Pack Formats ( For more information about management pack customizations and the Default Management Pack, see About Management Packs in Operations Manager 2007 (

To perform the procedures in this section, you must be a member of the Operations Manager Administrators group in the Operations console. For more information, see Account Information for Operations Manager 2007 (

To create a new management pack for overrides

  1. On your management server, click Start, type Operations Console, and then click Operations Console.

  2. In the navigation pane, click Administration.

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

  4. In Name, type a name (for example, AD DLS Customizations), and then click Next.

  5. Click Create. After the new management pack is created, it appears in the Management Packs pane.

If you are running the beta version of the AD LDS Management Pack, upgrading to the release version is not supported. Therefore, you may want to write down any configuration changes that you want to preserve so that you can implement those changes when you import the release version of the AD LDS Management Pack.
