Want to design your own simple management packs for SCOM (OpsMgr) from scratch but, like me, found the authoring kit to be like a mythical Greek maze filled with monsters?  Well I have great news … the Visio Management Pack Designer (VMPD) is finally here!!!!

I blogged about this tool at MMS earlier this year.  You drag and drop what you want done, and it’ll do all the hard work for you.  It’ll be a great addition to any OpsMgr admin/consultant toolkit.

The System Center 2012 Visio MP Designer—VMPD—is an add-in for Visio 2010 Premium that allows you to visually design a System Center Operations Manager Core Monitoring Management Pack. VMPD generates a Management Pack that is compliant to the MP Authoring Best Practices by simply dragging and dropping Visio shapes to describe your application architecture and configuring them through the Shape Properties.

- Visually describe your application architecture which generates classes and discoveries.

- Visually add monitoring to create monitors and rules.

- Start quickly from our pre-canned single server and multi-server patterns.
