SCOM 2007 upgrade failed: Cross platform management packs are imported in this..


  • I had an evaluation copy of SCOM 2007 R2 which has expired. I have purchased the licensed copy of SCOM 2007 R2 and trying to install it. 

    I am getting the error saying cross platform management packs are installed which should be removed first before upgrade. Now I cannot connect to SCOM console to manually remove those management packs as my evaluation period is already over.

    Is there any way by which I can remove the management pack other than console. Where are they located on disk? can I delete them manually?

  • One thought:  Can you get the Powershell command shell to work even though the eval has expired?  If so, you might be able to execute a Powershell command line like:

    Get-managementpack | where{$_.displayname –like “*Test*” | uninstall-managementpack

    This is just speculation on my part as I don't know exactly what gets disabled when the eval expires.

  • Thanks for your reply Michael.

    Unfortunately the SCOM powershell is also prompting for upgrade and not allowing to execute any command. I tried to manually delete the .mp files in install directory. The problem still persists.
