Effective immediately, the Windows Client 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 Operating System Management Pack (MP) for Operations Manager 2007 is no longer available via the in-console download experience for System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2. Customers looking for this management pack will need to download the management pack from the following Microsoft Pinpoint location instead:
The Windows Client Monitoring Management Pack is built to detect, diagnose, and resolve hardware and software problems pertaining to Client 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Information and analysis on the issues that the system detected are collected by the Management Packs through an agent on the client machine, then sent to OpsMgr 2007 where this data is converted into health state, alerts (if need be) and processed for business critical and aggregate reports. The MP gives a clear picture of catastrophic failures in your mission critical machines, trend-based alerts of significant changes to computer groups, in-depth views of health of individual machines, and reports that provide a landscape view of the health of all monitored clients.
