About

I (Vincent de Vries) started as an infrastructure consultant over 10 years ago, focusing on Active Directory and Exchange in large corporate environments. Always having had a keen interest in programming I started developing custom tools for Exchange reporting and migrations. Currently the emphasis of my activities consist of developing (C#, VBScript) custom interfaces, authoring Management Packs and consulting on topic of Operations Manager.

    Hello Vincent

    Ernie here, I have been running through your post on “Creating a Powershell Discovery and Monitor” every thing was going OK until I got to page 64 out of 74 i.e. the page just before navigate to the presentation section.

    I tried to Save, so I could move on to the Presentation section (MP been saving OK up to this point) when I tried the save the verify through up the following error:

    Note: The following information was gathered when the operation was attempted. The information may appear cryptic but provides context for the error. The application will continue to run.

    : Verification failed with [1] errors:
    ——————————————————-
    Error 1:
    : Failed to verify Unit monitor with ID: Example.PowerShell.Services.ServiceMonitor
    Cannot find ManagementPackElement [Type=ManagementPackClass, ID=Example.Powershell.Services.Class] in ManagementPack [ManagementPack:[Name=Example.PowerShell.Services, KeyToken=, Version=1.0.0.0]]
    ——————————————————-

    Failed to verify Unit monitor with ID: Example.PowerShell.Services.ServiceMonitorCannot find ManagementPackElement [Type=ManagementPackClass, ID=Example.Powershell.Services.Class] in ManagementPack

    [ManagementPack:[Name=Example.PowerShell.Services, KeyToken=, Version=1.0.0.0]]
    : Failed to verify Unit monitor with ID: Example.PowerShell.Services.ServiceMonitor
    Cannot find ManagementPackElement [Type=ManagementPackClass, ID=Example.Powershell.Services.Class] in ManagementPack [ManagementPack:[Name=Example.PowerShell.Services, KeyToken=, Version=1.0.0.0]]
    : Cannot find ManagementPackElement [Type=ManagementPackClass, ID=Example.Powershell.Services.Class] in ManagementPack [ManagementPack:[Name=Example.PowerShell.Services, KeyToken=, Version=1.0.0.0]]

    I have now stopped at Page 64, can you kindly assist me on resolving the above, looks to me like the verify cannot locate said MP which is being referenced, but is this not all part of the same MP in any event?

    Thanks Vincent

      Hi Ernest,
      Good to see you are getting into MP authoring 🙂
      Sorry for not responding sooner but I was on holiday for a while with slow internet to the point of not being worth using.
      I think the problem is that you didn’t hit save after creating the Example.Powershell.Services.Class class, leaving you in a deadlock where the authoring console didn’t notice that you have created the class already. I think the autoring console is a great tool, but also a bit buggy to say the least, so this leaves you in the situation where you have to hit cancel to all the hard work you have done buiding the monitor…
      If you havn’t solved the issue yet please drop a line!

      – Vince
