OpsMgr 2007: Managing Unix/Linux with beta Cross Platform Extensions – Overview TAB missing

Interesting observation I made while I was testing the Beta Cross Platform Extensions, I thought it would be worth mentioning since I took some time to figure it out myself. I planned to setup monitoring of the SUSE Enterprise 10 Operating System, I imported the below Management Pack as per the dependencies shown in console









The MP’s are successfully imported without any warnings or errors

During the run through the configuration wizard


We are asked to follow the below Steps


2.         Click the Monitoring navigation button. In the Monitoring pane, expand Cross Platform Servers, and then click Overview.


3.         On the Overview page, launch the Unix and Linux Compatible Computer Management Wizard by clicking Discover available Unix and Linux Computers.

 Note :

 If the Do not show this page again check box is selected on the Introduction page, this page no longer displays when running the discovery wizard.


4.         On the Introduction page, click Next to start the Unix and Linux Compatible Computer Management Wizard.



The Overview Page under the Cross Platform Servers is missing


Although the below two Management Packs are not shown as dependency

If these two Management Packs are not imported the Overview page under the Cross Platform Servers view does not appear
