Installing Easy Tune

The Easy Tune product is easily installed using the Management Packs pane within your SCOM environment.  An additional configuration step sets the network or local path for customizations.

Importing the Management Pack

Import Cookdown.EasyTune-<version>.mpb and Cookdown.Licensing-<version>.mpb (required from Easy Tune version as you would import any other SCOM management pack.  After the management pack has been imported it is recommended that you close and re-open the SCOM Console - until you do this you will find Easy Tune at the bottom of the administration pane.


In-place upgrades are supported for all versions of Easy Tune shipped publicly. When upgrading to version or later, please import the cookdown.licensing-<version>.mpb management pack before upgrade or upgrade will fail.

Setting the Tuning Pack Location

Once you’ve added the management pack and re-opened the SCOM console, navigate to the Administration section, expand the new "Easy Tune – Cookdown" and select "Tuning Packs".

Choose ‘Set Local Store Folder’ to open the configuration dialog.

The center button allows you to browse for a destination folder location.  You can alternatively add a network UNC path to the text box.  Once you’ve chosen the location, click ‘Save’ to save the setting.

NOTE: If the console is run with administrator permissions this location will be set for all users if not, it is set for the current user only.
