Visual Studio Management Pack Authoring Series – Part 2 – Create Key to seal Management Packs

There is a great article on sealed and unsealed management packs here so I’m not going to repeat the same information. Although the article was written for Operations Manager 2007, it is relevant to Operations Manager 2012. Indeed, even the process at the end works fine.

  1. In the “Search Windows” box, type in dev .. you should see in the list of items, Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio 2015.
  2. Right click Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio 2015 and choose Run As Administrator.
  3. Create Key

  4. We need to create a Key File so type: sn.exe -k c:\temp\SCOMMPSeal.snk.
  5. Store the key in a secure location that you can get to when you need to seal a Management Pack.
