DEll 6.2 MP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I wish to upgrade to the latest Dell MP (6.2) on SCOM 2012R2.

    But the notes say to remove the previous version (6.0.0).

    There are ~20 Dell MP's installed.

    Is there any order in which to remove them?

    Any things to note in their removal?

    Thx,

    John Bradshaw

  • Hi John,

    ASSUMING that the following CMDLET (you could play with the search string shows ONLY those MPs you'd like to remove...

    Get-SCOMManagementPack -DisplayName "*Dell*"

    ...you could run the following multiple times as long as all MPs have been removed:

    Get-SCOMManagementPack -DisplayName "*Dell*" | Remove-SCOMManagementPack

    The CMDLET will show an error in case it could not remove the MP because of existing dependencies and will only remove those that do not have dependencies (anymore).

    Again, please be sure that only those are listed that you want to remove. And export/backup any unsealed (override-) MP before.

    Cheers,
    Patrick

  • Hi John,

    the approach Patrick suggested is cool, but if you are not sure of your PowerShell skills and would like to do this in a more familiar way - you could do this also from the console. Just pick any of the MPs to be removed and try deleting it. If it has dependencies the console will show you,  on which MPs this particular MP depends and then you can start removing those. If the MP doesn't depend on other MP it will get removed without any message. 

    Hope this helps. Regards,
