How to Import a Management Pack in Operations Manager 2007 SP1

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 SP1

A management pack configures Operations Manager to monitor a specific application, service, or device. When a management pack is imported into Operations ManagerĀ 2007, it immediately begins monitoring a specific application, service, or device. No additional configuration is required.

Each imported management pack requires additional resources from your monitoring and monitored computers. Import only the management packs that you need.
