What's the best way to remove a MP dependancy? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to import the newest Exchange 2007 MP designed around R2 however it reccomends that I remove the existing, converted Exchange 2007 MP. I'd like to do this however it has a dependancy on the Default Management Pack. Do I need to remove the Delfault MP first before I can do anything?

  • Hi Sandy,

    If your installation is R2, and you dont have any customizations saved to your old (SP1 version) default MP, then yes, you can import the R2 version of the default MP.

    Thanks,

  • You should not remove the default MP, instead take a look at this blog post http://blogs.technet.com/kevinholman/archive/2008/11/11/cleaning-up-the-default-mp.aspx about clean up the default MP

  • Thanks Anders. I don't care about my Default MP; that is, I do all my overrides in Custom MPs. This post should help!

  • Hi Sandy

    Perhaps I have misunderstood but you should care about the Default MP - you are correct in saving overrides to custom MPs but the default mp is still used within OpsMgr and removing it will remove some monitoring views amongst other things ..... if you follow the link that Anders has provided that should allow you to clean it up so that you can import the Exchange 2007 MP.

    Just be aware that at the moment the native Exchange 2007 MP only supports R2 ... I think an SP1 version is coming later in the year ...

    Cheers

  • Hello Graham,

    Well, actually, nothing personal towards the humble Default MP, I do care about it, I suppose I meant that I hadn't created any overrides or customizations in it. I did notice, after reading Anders' link that there is a new, pristing Default MP on my system. That was something I hadn't realized before. My RMS was just upgraded to R2 and the Default MP is now the R2 version whereas the Default MP that I exported / imported is the SP1 version. Should I try and replace the SP1 with the R2 version?

  • Hello Shreedevi,

    Thanks for the post. I don't have any customizations so I'll try importing the R2 version. Thanks !
