- Extract the OneView management pack zip file to a location on your SCOM server.
- Run the MasterInstaller application that is found in the folder where you extracted the HPE OneView for Microsoft System Center zip file, make sure you Run as administrator when running the MasterInstaller!
- A new window called HPE Oneview for Microsoft Center 9.0 will open up, we will begin by installing the HPE OneView SCOM Integration Kit 4.0.10, click Install HPE OneView SCOM Integration Kit 4.0.10 to continue.
- A HPE OneView SCOM Integration Kit installation wizard will open up, click Next to continue.

- Note that the HPE OneView Event Manager has to be installed on your SCOM management server in order to be able to use the HPE OneView SCOM management pack, the installation wizard will notify you about this.

In my case I will just pick all.Note: The HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage, HPE StoreVirtual Storage and the HPE MSA Storage requires the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) console to be installed on the current server, you will be notified about it, see below.
