Installing RC Management Packs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm new to all this  so bare with me..

    If I install the RC (in particular the FIM MP), will I be able to import the RTM version when it gets released? Are there any other issues I should be aware of installing RC MPs?

    Cheers

    Mark.

  • Usually.  A release candidate designation typically means that the product is close to the final release.  No guarantees that something found in RC would not be different than the final.

    Sometimes a RC needs to be removed in order to install the final.

  • Doing this is simple - go to administration space, click on Management Packs.  Find the MP files associated with the RC (you need to remember all of the file names).  Delete them in reverse dependency order.  If there is only one file, just click it, right click it and select delete.

    If you have made overrides on the MP, you will need to delete the Override MP first.

    If you have added overrides and not followed best practices, you will need to remove overrides from the default MP, then manually edit the default MP file to remove references to the RC MP you want to delete, update the version # in the default MP and then re-import it before you can remove the MP.
