How to Remove a Management Pack

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

When you no longer need a management pack, you can delete it using the Operations console. When you delete a management pack, all the settings and thresholds associated with it are removed from Operations ManagerĀ 2007. Also, the .mp or .xml file for that management pack is deleted from the hard disk of the management server. You can delete a management pack only if you have first deleted dependent management packs.


If you saved any overrides to a management pack in the Default Management Pack, you must uninstall the Default Management Pack before you can uninstall any management pack that it overrides. When the Default Management Pack is uninstalled, it can only be restored by uninstalling and reinstalling Operations Manager.

To remove a management pack

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations ManagerĀ 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, click the Administration button.


    When you run the Operations console on a computer that is not a management server, the Connect To Server dialog box displays. In the Server name text box, type the name of the Operations ManagerĀ 2007 management server to which you want the Operations console to connect.

  3. In the Administration pane, click Management Packs.

  4. In the Management Packs pane, right-click the management pack you would like to remove and then click Delete.

  5. On the message stating that deleting the management pack might affect the scoping of some user roles, click Yes.


If any other imported management packs depend on the management pack you are trying to remove, the Dependent Management Packs error message displays. You must remove the dependent management packs before you can continue.

Operations Manager removes the selected management pack.
