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

In Operations ManagerĀ 2007, you can use the following procedure to create a folder in the Monitoring pane to store views that you have created.

To create a folder in the Monitoring pane

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

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

  3. In the Monitoring pane, right-click Monitoring, point to New, and then click Folder.

  4. In the Create new folder dialog box, type a descriptive name in Folder Name. Next to Select the destination management pack, click the down-arrow to view a list of unsealed management packs. You can save the folder only to an unsealed management pack. Click New if you want to create a new management pack. After you select a management pack, click OK.

    Note

    The default selection for the destination management pack is the Default Management Pack. As a best practice, you should create a separate management pack for each sealed management pack you want to customize, rather than saving your customized settings to the Default Management Pack. For more information, see Default Management Pack.
