Cannot add override to groups I created

I am having trouble setting overrides. I have created a group so I can lump in my SNMP servers in (as well as made the corresponding SNMP management pack). Installed a Management Pack (Process Monitor http://systemcenterforum.org/wp-content/uploads/ProcessMonitor.zip) that has a script that monitors if a process is running. It is set to NOT enabled by default  as to not alert on all servers. When I try to override it and I select "Override the monitor -> for a group..." I do not show the group I created. When I try and override by "Override the monitor -> For all obects of another type" and select my group I get the error below:

: Failed to validate item [ID=OverrideForMonitorUIGeneratedMonitordd69a321a9c649c1b8266ba2e28da8e3ForContextUINameSpaceaedaa29889f54adb912162a2ae829edfGroup7f69acb71ed346aa9fb7d647568e275e].
Cannot add ManagementPackReference [ManagementPack:[Name=SNMP.Management.Servers, KeyToken=, Version=1.0.0.0]]. Unsealed ManagementPacks cannot be added as references. Please specify a valid Sealed management pack reference.
: Cannot add ManagementPackReference [ManagementPack:[Name=SNMP.Management.Servers, KeyToken=, Version=1.0.0.0]]. Unsealed ManagementPacks cannot be added as references. Please specify a valid Sealed management pack reference.

What am I doing wrong here?

You using an override for a group that is stored in a unsealed management pack, that why your getting this error. Solution is to apply the override to a "For a Group.." and not "For all objects of another type".

Hello,

It seems the first part of the question has been skipped. The error got on "Override the monitor -> For all obects of another type" has been resolved or at least explained, no objection. But there was a try before to do "Override the monitor -> for a group..." which was unsucessfull due to the fact the Group(s) was (were) not showing and this step has been placed as resolution of the error... there is some incoherence ... or an extension to the resolution should explain why the group(s) is(are) not showing and how to deal with this for the override process which was the object of this thred.

Thanks,
Dom

Your group isn't stored in the same Management Pack where you want to store the override, and both MP's are unsealed, the group will not show up.  When you attempt to use the override to a different class, where your group actually display it error because your group is not a call. You cannot reference an unsealed MP from an unsealed MP.  In this case, you'll either need to store the group in a sealed MP, or craete the group in the same MP where you want to create your override.
