imageHere’s a new Knowledge Base article we published this morning. This one is more of a heads-up but it explains what you may see if you try to import a Management Pack in OpsMgr but haven’t imported the other Management Packs that are listed as dependencies first.

=====

Summary

When importing a management pack in System Center Operations Manager 2007 that has a dependency on another management pack, the import may fail with the following message:


<ManagementPackName> could not be imported.

If any management packs in the Import list are dependent on this management pack, the installation of the dependent management packs will fail.
The requested management pack was invalid. See inner exception for details.
Parameter name: managementPack

More Information

This issue occurs because a management pack that the management pack being imported depends on isn't imported in the management group. In order to work around this problem, import the dependent management packs first then import the management packs that depend on them.

NOTE If you're unsure of the dependencies for a management pack, they will be listed in the management pack guide.
