SCOM 2016 Console ‘An object of class ManagementPackFolder with ID xxxxxxx’– SC 2016 bug

EDIT: Fix posted here: SCOM Console Fix


So, if any of you are using SCOM 2016 and have recently deployed the console, you may be getting this error below:


An object of class ManagementPackFolder with ID <MP GUID>




On the sick client, you will find the following in event viewer






Essentially, it’s a clash locally with the SCSM (Service Manager) Console..



Uninstall SCSM and SCOM Console 2016 will work immediately.




This one wasn’t all that hard to work out as the exact same experience happened for System Center 2012…


Not ideal as we use both SCSM and SCOM as core business applications so hopefully a bug fix will be out soon.


Will post when a fix is produced.
