Where do the Management Pack Files go once you import them RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Hopefully this is a simple question, I may just be missing some thing obvious

    I have SCOM 2007 R2

    When I download and run the MSI to unpack he MP, I understand where it extract the files. I then go to SCOM Console and Import the MP, not problems so far.

    However I would expect the MP import process to also place a copy of the MP in the "C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007" folder. However on several occasion when I have needed to point/find a Management Pack for various reasons, the MP or MPs do not appear to be in this folder. I guess I could always go back to the location where the MP is extracted from the MSI and reference them there. However I thought they should all reside in the "C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007" folder as a matter of course.

    Any advice, most welcome please

    Thanks

  • when you imported management pack into your scom environment, the management pack information is stored into scom DB. It DOES NOT save any copies on your local machine.

  • Hi AanotherUser,

    It depends on a management pack, some of them place a copy of .mp files to C: drive, some don't.

  • When you import MP manual and install msi, By default it' s extract files on "C:\Program Files\System Center Management Packs".

  • The Management Packs are not stored locally on the RMS/MS machines. they get stored in DB.

    however you can find them on agents under c:\program files\system center operations manager\Agent\health service state\management packs.
