How do I delete an attribute in OpsMgr 2007?

I notice - when viewing a custom attribute, there is no option to delete it... only view the properties?


Apparently this is by design.  There is no harm in having "extra" attributes in SCOM - that arent used.  However, if you do want to delete an unused attribute - you will have to export your MP - and then edit the XML, and reimport the MP:

Export the management pack to XML.  Then open it with XML notepad, or your favorite XML editor, and delete the section defining the attribute.

Or - a simpler method - find the object discovery for the attribute in the Authoring pane of the console, and disable the discovery that was created for this attribute.
