I inherited a SCOM 2007 project and its filled with management packs, monitors and alerts up the ying-yang.

I have worked with SCOM a little before but not on this scale. Anyone have a good resource on how to use the darn thing, cause I can't seem to figure out how to add/remove alerts and monitors.

Its gotta be a free resource. I just need to know how to change/delete a monitor and/or alert. Just so i don't get a million alerts for low importance stuff.

This resource from Microsoft Technet is a great resource for SCOM information:

SCOM is a great monitoring tool and Microsoft's built-in monitors use their Best Practice principals.  You will find that these defaults may cause a lot of noise (e-mail/alerts)  in your environment until you get them adjusted to meet your service level needs.  Do not be discouraged - fine tuning can take weeks, but once it is setup you'll wonder how you survived without it.

That is a lot to read.....XoX
There is no simple way? Something like,  "go here to turn off the alerts" kind of thing?
