A Management Pack configures Essentials 2007 to monitor a specific application, service, or device. When a Management Pack is imported into Essentials 2007, it immediately begins monitoring a specific application, service, or device. No additional configuration is required.

To import a Management Pack

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Administrators group on the Essentials 2007 Management Server.

  2. In the Essentials 2007 console, click the Administration button.

    When you run the Essentials 2007 console on a computer that is not a Management Server, the Connect To Server dialog box displays. In the Server name text box, type the name of the Essentials 2007 Management Server.
  3. Right-click the Management Packs node and then click Import Management Pack(s).

  4. The Select Management Pack(s) to import dialog box displays. If necessary, change to the directory that holds your Management Pack file. Click one or more Management Packs to import from that directory, and then click Open.

  5. The Import Management Packs dialog box displays the Management Packs that you selected. Click Add or Remove to edit the list of Management Packs to be imported. When the list is complete, click the Import button.

  6. After the import process is complete, and the dialog box displays an icon next to each Management Pack indicating success or failure of the importation, click the Close button.

    The Management Packs pane of the Essentials 2007 console lists all imported Management Packs.
