    Hi,

     

    From the post below, we can see Kevin’s comment “Why on earth would you export out your override MP first?  SCOM is designed so that's never necessary.  The whole purpose of using sealed MP's was that you can upgrade them without fear or issue - your override MP's stay intact and still apply.  There isnt any reason to export or remove your unsealed MP's except for simple backup purposes. ” .

    Would you please let us know more information about the overrides you noticed in Default Management Pack? It is not recommended to save the overrides into Default Management Pack. If you want to back up the Default Management Pack, you can export it and make a backup copy.

     

    If you want to remove the dependencies , please refer to the following methods:

  • when doing updates it is a nice thing to just do a quick (scripted) export of all unsealed mp's (or implement the unsealed mp backup management pack and have it done automatically).

    But it is not needed for the update of the mp to the new version. havent had any problems updating it in several environments.

  • Hi,

    Never make any overrides in the default MP, create your own MP

    Here is a powershell backup command "get-managementpack | export-managementpack -path c:\backup" or use the gui: http://scug.be/blogs/dieter/archive/2011/07/06/scom-2007-how-to-backup-your-unsealed-management-packs.aspx

    You can get the latest MP here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=9296

  • Well I didnt, but I see some overrides in the default MP. What do I do to save them?  Will they get over-written if i cannot save them?
