What is a trial management pack ?

In order for you to test and evaluate our solution, we provide each and every user who create an account with a free license plan.

When you create an account on MIB2MP, you can immediately start to use the solution and create a trial management pack!

A trial management pack is a fully functional management pack with only two restrictions:

  1. It is intended for testing purposes only: You cannot deploy and use it in a production environment.
  2. You can add up to one item per category within the same management project. The item categories are the following:
    1. Alert rule
    2. Event rule
    3. Performance rule
    4. Probe monitor
    5. Trap monitor


For example, if you create a project with one performance rule and one probe monitor, it will be automatically considered as a trial management pack and you will be able to generate it for free.

However, if you create a project with one performance rule, two event rules and one trap monitor, this project will not be considered as a trial management pack. This is because of the two event rules added in your project. You will be required to upgrade to another license plan to generate it.
If you remove one of the two event rules, then your management pack will be considered as a trial – and free – management pack.

Creating a trial management pack is a good way to test and validate an SNMP device monitoring in your SCOM environment so don’t hesitate and start to make your own right now!
