  • It's one of the MPs that is delivered as part of CU4. They're in

    C:\Program Files (x86)\System Center 2007 R2 Hotfix Utility\KB2449679\ManagementPacks on any system you did the server update on.

    Did you follow Kevin Holman's procedures for applying CU4?

  • Yes, i followed this procedure. and on production and on test systems i don't have this management pack in any locations. I can see it only in operations console.

  • Just a reminder on how management packs work - they get imported into the management group.  The management group then determines when and where they get distributed.

    Being present in a directory on the file system as noted above is not a sign that they have been imported - but if they are shown in your operations console, then you are good to go.

  • Hi

    But they won't be "good to go" for the Authoring console which is what the question asks. 

    But "when i export a management pack and try to open it in authoring console, the authoring console promt to locate v 6.1.7221.61"

    This is because the MP that is being opened references the v 6.1.7221.61 MP.

    If you log on to your RMS, and take a look in the \Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\ folder then you'll see the core set of Management Packs. I'd copy them across to your Authoring Console machine and set the references to them there.

  • Ahh... read "console" ops console, authoring console - entirely too much for these old eyes early in the AM without the help of stimulants. <grin>

  • I'm having the same issue as maxx-ode.  CU4 was applied per instructions, upgrading from RTM.  In the Operations Console I can see that the System Center Core Library is 6.1.7221.61 but the file in \Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\ is 6.1.7221.0.  I'm trying to open a custom MP in the Authoring Console on a workstation and it's asking for the newer version of the core MP.

  • You'll have to crack that somehow out of the CU package then.  I don't think the CU team anticipated this case - lets see what we can do to find a way to make this available.

  • Not a long term solution, but it's unlikely that you actually REQUIRE the patched version of the library.  After exporting change the version number to


          <Reference Alias="SystemCenter">

  • Dan,

    Any updates on this? We release MP's from a Dev MgmtGrp to a Prd MgmtGrp. We use the authoring console for finetuning the MP's. Now we can't change the MP's using the authoring console. The workaround mentioned by dbabob56 works, but how can we work with the new library if the file is not available?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Marc

    I'll escalate to see if there is a route to get this prior to CU5. Sadly although the web applications mp was provided as part of the previous cumulative update (it went into the management pack folder), this mp went straight into the database which is causing the issue for everyone.

  • Any updates on this?

    This just gives us more ammunition when we see CU5 come out and we decide not to deploy it.

  • you can get the mp by opening a call to microsoft.

    i've just did and got the mp within 4 hours after i made the case. i suppose its free of charge, but i really don't know as my compagny has a premier contract.

  • Here is the link for the KB article to download the MPs.

  • Hello,

    This link provides a file which is updated in the SCOM Console but not on the physical file on disk as stated earlier.

    I have the same problem again with CU5 and over does not have its version changed on disk but only in the console , it is really annoying!!!
