Backout / Roll Back a SCOM Management Pack

Filed under: Issues, Microsoft, SCOM 2007 — opsmgr @ 4:00 pm

It would be nice if SCOM supported a Roll Back feature for its Management Packs like Windows does with drivers nowadays. However it doesn’t, so should you want to backout an MP you are going to need to remove it. You are unable to install an older version MP over a new version MP.

Removing a SCOM Management Pack is simple:
1. Open System Center Operations Manager 2007 Operators Console
2. Go in to the Administration section
3. Select the Management Packs in the left plane
4. Highlight the Management Pack you with to remove on the right
5. Right-Click and select Delete
6. Click YES to approve

Note: Some MP’s (ie: SQL) have dependancies and these will be shown as needing to be removed before you can remove the currently selected MP.

Once you have clicked delete it can take some time and you will notice that the TEMPDB in your Database Warehouse can expand to an incredible amount. I have seen it get upto 14GB! This something to keep your eye on as you will be removing all the data associated with the Management Pack.
