The ESI Zip file, which is available on EMC Online Support, contains the ESI SCOM Management Packs installer. The management packs must be installed on the SCOM Management Group that is connected to the ESI SCOM monitoring agents. The ESI SCOM agents are connected to the same Windows domain as the ESI host system that has the ESI Service installed.

Installing and importing the ESI SCOM Management Packs
To install and import the management packs:
On the SCOM Management Group server that is connected to the ESI SCOM agents, download the ESI Zip file.
In the ESI Zip file, locate and double-click the ESI SCOM ManagementPacks.*.Setup file.
The management pack files are installed by default to the C:\Program Files\EMC\Management Packs folder.
If upgrading from ESI version 2.1, delete the existing files, except for the customization files, from SCOM before importing the new management pack files.
Import each ESI management pack file in SCOM; however, if you have previously imported the management packs and are performing an update, do not import the EMC.SI.Customization.xml file.
Notice: The customization file contains your overrides and customizations. You will lose your override settings if you reimport this file. This file is installed with version number 126.96.36.199. You can increment the version number when you make changes.
