The online catalog on SCOM 2007 R2 is awesome

Or not …

During a full MPacks update with the online catalog on the SCOM console, we lost all global views Active Alerts (…) and we were unable to create new views in the Monitoring tab on SCOM 2007 R2

The alert are working fine, but it was impossible to access the global views.

But we could create new views in the personnal scope in the console.

Cause : The MPack Default wasn’t available anymore.

Resolution : We had to reimport the Default MPack (found in D:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Microsoft.SystemCenter.OperationsManager.DefaultUser.xml) and relaunch the OpsMgr console
