      Good write up, thank you.  Wanted to throw out a comment that this procedure is still relevant to Solution Manager 7.2, up to and including SPS 4.  The steps change a little.

      • Start in IT Infrastructure Monitoring step 2.7 as opposed to the name Technical Monitoring
      • In step 2.7 all you need to do is press the "Download" button.
      • In the resulting dialog press LAUNCH APPLICATION
      • The system sends you over to the SYSTEM Monitoring area. (also step 2.7)
      • Press the update button there.
