HELP! Prior admin removed SCOM 2012R2 APM Mgmt Packs! How do I get APM pieces reimported and functional again? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Afternoon,

    Just when I think I can take a breath and move to the next item in the list....I just discovered that the APM pieces for our SCOM install were deleted and no record of when this was done.

    I began doing backups of the sealed and unsealed MPs in mid Feb of 2017. When I applied UR12 I did not pay attention to adding the updated APM pieces since I was not using them or Advisor pieces at the time. I never noticed they were not still installed since we were not using APM. Now I have a requirement for APM and need to test.

    Is it possible at all to fix this???

    Environment: SCOM 2012R2 UR12.

    NOTE: As I was typing this I successfully imported the following from the UR12 updates folder. I know there are more pieces needed!??

    Thanks in advance for your time and assistance!

  • Hi Tony,

    You can find the APM management packs from the SCOM 2012 R2 installation disk, in the Management Packs folder.

    You should find all the default APM related management packs within the folder above:

    Here's an example of all the APM related management packs that I have at one customer who are using SCOM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 14:

  • Morning and thank you. So, if I import these, wait a bit then update them with the items from the 2012R2 UR12, it should then be good?

    Thanks again,

  • I can’t say whether all will be ”fine” or not, but these management packs are installed by default so I would think it should help.

  • Morning,

    That may have dome the trick. I imported the ones shown from the 2012r2 image, waited a few hours then updated with the 2012r2 UR12 files. No errors that I can see so far.

    Now, to learn about APM. If anyone has any good pointers or things NOT to do, I am all ears. Google search here I come.

    Thank you!
