Using MP Viewer to unseal or export MP to XLS or HTML


Use MPViewer and open the management pack files (MP and MPB)

 

Thanks to Daniele Muscetta for converting this so many years ago!

MPViewer tool https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dmuscett/2012/02/19/boriss-opsmgr-tools-updated/

 

Jan Van Meirvenne spent the time to update the functionality even further

MPViewer "2012 Reloaded (release 1)" http://scug.be/jan/2016/06/06/mp-viewer-2012reloaded/

 

 

Load Management pack

In MPViewer,

Click on File, Load Management Pack

The 2012 Reloaded MPViewer allows you to open multiple management packs, or from a Management group

 

 

Go to your directory where you saved the UNIX SCOM 2016 UR2 management packs

If necessary, change the dropdown to mpb

 

 

To unseal MP to view in Notepad++

 

Once MP is loaded

Click File

Click Unseal MP (my path defaults to desktop)

Open file in Notepad++ or XML Editor, or your favorite XML viewer of choice

 

 

 

To export a management pack to XLS

Once MP is loaded

Click File

Click Save to Excel (my path defaults to desktop)

 

Choose path

My personal preference is to append filename with XLS for visibility

 

Copy file to a machine with Excel installed

 

Open the XML file in Excel, and hide all tabs but the Monitor tabs, and rules tab

Turn on auto-filter, etc.
