Authoring Console error Opening Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library

Standard

When you open a Management Pack in the System Center Operations Manager 2007 r2 Authoring Console you can get the following Warning:

AuthoringConsoleError

This is error can take place when u have System Center Operations Manager Cumulative Update 6 installed. When you browse to select the Microsoft.System.Library you get the same warning. This is because the version of the management pack that you select is 6.1.7221.0.

To Solve the issue:

  1. Open the Management Pack in a XML Editor for example Notepad
  2. Locate the following "Reference Alias="SC"
    [codesyntax lang="xml"]
    <Reference Alias="SC">
    <ID>Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library</ID>
    <Version>6.1.7221.81</Version>
    <PublicKeyToken>31bf3856ad364e35</PublicKeyToken>
    </Reference>
    [/codesyntax]
  3. Change it to:
    [codesyntax lang="xml"]
    <Reference Alias="SC">
    <ID>Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library</ID>
    <Version>6.1.7221.0</Version>
    <PublicKeyToken>31bf3856ad364e35</PublicKeyToken>
    </Reference>
    [/codesyntax]

Now you can open the management pack in the System Center Operations Manager 2007 r2 Authoring Console.
