You can use the Operations Manager class libraries to perform Management Pack deployment tasks. For example, you can export an existing Management Pack to an XML file.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to export the contents of a Management Pack to an XML file.

Visual Basic  Copy Code
' <summary> 
' Exports a sample Management Pack whose display name is
' "Test Management Pack 1".
' </summary>
Imports System
Imports System.Collections.ObjectModel
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Text
Imports System.Xml
Imports Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement
Imports Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration
Imports Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration.IO


Namespace SDKSamples
	Class Program
		Public Overloads Shared Function Main(ByVal args() As String) As Integer

			Dim mg As ManagementGroup = New ManagementGroup("localhost")

			' Define the path to the directory that will store
			' the exported Management Pack.
			Dim mpPath As String = "C:\Program Files\System Center Management Packs\"

			Dim query As String = "DisplayName = 'Test Management Pack 1'"
			Dim mpCriteria As ManagementPackCriteria = New ManagementPackCriteria(query)
			Dim mpCollection As ReadOnlyCollection(Of ManagementPack) = _
				mg.GetManagementPacks(mpCriteria)
			If (mpCollection.Count <> 1) Then
				Throw New InvalidOperationException( _
					"Error! Expected one Management Pack with: " & query)
			End If

			Dim outputFileName As String = mpPath & mpCollection(0).Name & ".xml"
			Using mpStream As Stream = New FileStream(outputFileName, FileMode.Create)

				Dim writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create(mpStream)
				Dim mpwriter As ManagementPackXmlWriter = New ManagementPackXmlWriter(writer)
				mpwriter.WriteManagementPack(mpCollection(0))
				mpStream.Close()
			End Using
		End Function
	End Class
End Namespace
