When you try to edit a new management pack in the Authoring Console in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 after you install Cumulative Update 4 (CU4) or later versions, you are prompted for the latest version of the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack.
NOTE: This KB article is only applicable if CU4 or later is installed.
NOTE: Do not import the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack into your management group. You do not have to do this. In fact, in a very limited set of circumstances, importing this management pack can result in the need to restore the Operations Manager database from backup.

NotesWhen a new management pack is created in the Operations Console, the management pack automatically includes a dependency on the latest version of the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack. In Cumulative Update 4 (CU4), a change was made to the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack to prevent connectors from appearing as Distributed Applications in the Distributed Applications state view and in other locations where Distributed Applications could be displayed, such as the Distributed Application Designer. This change was made in response to the feedback of customers who did not want connectors to be shown in the Distributed Applications state view.
WarningThe updated version of the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library management pack is embedded in the SQL script that is included with each new cumulative update. The management pack is then imported into the management group when the administrator runs the SQL script. The script bypasses the verification code.
If the CU4 binary update is applied without the CU4 SQL update, you will be able to import version 6.1.7221.61 or a later version of the Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library. This results in the removal of all connector instances from the management group. The only way to recover from this situation is to restore from a DB backup. This is why access to Microsoft.SystemCenter.Library is limited.
