    Can some one share the information or guide on how to target a Management Pack specifically to a group of servers in SCOM 2012 R2?

  • You can't target a management pack to anything, this is not how it works... You need to read about how the whole class model and discoveries work :)

    In short : you can target rules, monitors and tasks to classes. Then instances of these classes will be monitored by the rules and monitors.

    Or you can use Monitoring Templates to target monitoring to group of servers.

  • This isn't the way SCOM works. You don't (and can't) apply management pack to specific groups.

    Suppose you went to monitor a set of SQL 2008 DB but not all

    Once you deployed SQL server 2008 MP it will discover all SQL Server 2008 component, now you need to remove the SQl Server that you dont need to monitor from Discovery and then run 

    Remove-SCOMDisabledClassInstance    command to complete the activity. 

    Below link describe the process

  • No, you can't target Management pack to specific group in SCOM, you can only disable monitoring on specific groups or classes.

  • Hi,

    If you are talking about custom management pack that you deployed, it is suggested set the discovery disabled by detault, and then enabled it by overriding for the specific group.
