In addition to the general recommendations for testing Management Packs that are described in the Microsoft Operations Manager 2007 Deployment Guide, this section lists testing tasks that are appropriate for the Configuration Manager 2007 Management Pack. For more information about testing Management Packs, see the Operations Manager 2007 Web page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=83259).

Verify that no error events and alerts are being raised by
