For more information on adding company knowledge to a management pack, see How to Add Knowledge to a Management Pack.

A task is a script or other executable code that runs either on the management server or on the server, client, or other device that is being managed.

A management pack might include specialized views, unique to that management pack.

In addition, you can create a personalized view in the Operations console.

Management packs define the type of objects that the management pack monitors.

The object discoveries can use the registry, WMI, scripts, OLE DB, LDAP, or even custom managed code to find objects on a network.

For example, the sections of the management packs which define rules and monitors are downloaded, while the sections for knowledge and reports are not.

Each management pack defines one or more classes that can be managed, and then specifies a group of monitors for instances of the classes.

Management packs typically contain monitoring settings for applications and services.

After a management pack is imported into a management group, System Center 2012 – Operations Manager immediately begins monitoring objects based on default configurations and thresholds that are set by the management pack.

For example, a management pack might include a customized definition of one of Operations Manager’s built-in reports, specifying the exact objects that the report should target.
