In Operations Manager 2007, if a management pack's default settings contain a monitor or rule that is not necessary in your environment, you can use overrides to disable this monitor or rule. The method in this procedure lets you specify a management pack in which to create the override. If you disable a monitor or rule by using the Disable command rather than this override procedure, the setting is saved to the Default Management Pack. As a best practice, you should create a separate management pack for each sealed management pack you want to customize, rather than saving your customized settings to the Default Management Pack. For more information, see Default Management Pack.

To disable a monitor or rule using overrides

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Advanced Operator role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, click the Authoring button.

  3. In the Authoring pane, click Monitors (or Rules if you want to disable a rule).

  4. In the Monitors or Rules section, click the monitor or rule that you want to disable.

  5. On the Operations console toolbar, click Overrides and then point to Override the Monitor (or Rule). You can choose to override this monitor or rule for objects of a specific type or for all objects within a group. After you choose which group of object type to override, the Override Properties dialog box opens, enabling you to view the default settings contained in this monitor.

  6. In the Override Properties dialog box, click to select the Override check box that corresponds to the Enabled parameter.

  7. In the Override Setting column, click False.

  8. In the Select destination management pack list, click the appropriate management pack in which to store the override or create a new unsealed management pack by clicking New.

  9. When you complete your changes, click OK.
