#VMM 2012 R2 Integration with #SCOM 2012 R2 Error (10218)

September 28, 2013 Leave a comment

When creating the integration between Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 and Operations Manager 2012 R2 , the integration fails with the following error:

VMM SCOM Integration

Error (10218)
Setup could not import the System Center Virtual Machine Manager Management Pack into Operations Manager server because one or more required management packs are missing. The VMM Management Packs cannot be deployed unless the following component management packs are present in Operations Manager :
Windows Server Internet Information Services 2003,
Windows Server 2008 Internet Information Services 7,
Windows Server Internet Information Services Library,
SQL Server Core Library.

Recommended Action
To provide the missing component management packs, ensure that the following management packs have been imported into Operations Manager server:
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Internet Information Services Management Pack for OpsMgr 2012 (version 6.0.6278.0 or later)
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Management Pack(version 6.0.5000.0 or later)
You can download the management packs from the System Center Operations Manager Catalog at
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=86411

 

VMM with Operations Manager Integration

Prerequisites

Before you connect VMM with Operations Manager, perform the following actions:

  • Ensure that an appropriate version of Windows PowerShell is installed on all Operations Manager management servers:
    For System Center 2012: Windows PowerShell 2.0
    For System Center 2012 SP1: Windows PowerShell 3.0
    To determine which version of Windows PowerShell is on a server, run the following:
    Get-Host | Select-Object Version
  • Make sure that port 5724 is open between VMM and Operations Manager.
  • Install an Operations Manager Operations console on the VMM management server.
  • Install Operations Manager agents on the VMM management server and all hosts under management by VMM (managed hosts). For more information, see Operations Manager Agent Installation Methods.
  • Verify that the managed hosts on which you installed agents are visible in Operations Manager. To do this, in the Operations console, clickAdministration and then, in the Administration pane, under Device Management, click Agent Managed. Verify that the expected hosts are listed.
  • In Operations Manager, import the necessary management packs, as described in How to Import an Operations Manager Management Pack. Management packs, which in some cases are called “monitoring packs,” are available through the catalog at the Microsoft System Center Marketplace. The necessary management packs are as follows:
    Windows Server Internet Information Services 2003
    Management packs that are required by the management pack for Windows Server 2008 Internet Information Services 7:
    Windows Server 2008 Operating System (Discovery)
    Windows Server Operating System Library
    Windows Server 2008 Internet Information Services 7
    Windows Server Internet Information Services Library
    SQL Server Core Library
    I verified Prerequisites for integration as per Microsoft TechNet Link and make sure that I imported all needed MP

Cause
Conflict between exist old Microsoft Virtualization Core Library in Operations Manager. The cause of the problem is that SCVMM 2012 will import a newer version of the Microsoft Virtualization Core Library Management Pack and the old version cannot be present in order for integration to complete successfully

Solution

Remove the old version of the Microsoft Virtualization Core Library and try Integration again.

System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer

February 25, 2013 Leave a comment

The System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer is your first line of defense in troubleshooting issues with System Center 2012 SP1 server-side components. The System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer is a diagnostic tool that you can use to evaluate important configuration settings for computers that are running any of the following System Center 2012 SP1 components: Operations Manager, Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), Service Manager, Orchestrator (plus Service Provider Foundation), Configuration Manager, and Data Protection Manager (DPM).

Previously, users who wanted to take advantage of this functionality had to download and install best practice analyzers (BPAs) for each System Center component. With the release of System Center 2012 SP1, users can now use a single model (called the System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer) within Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0 that automatically detects and scans all System Center 2012 SP1 server-side components.

You can find the download link Here

System requirements

Supported operating systems: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012

The following items must be pre-installed on the server or client computer on which System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer will be installed:

In addition, if you plan to scan any computers that will be used as a SQL Server host for a Configuration Manager site database, you must have SQL Server pre-installed on those computers.

What’s coming up with the next versions of SCOM and VMM!

April 22, 2010 1 comment

The System Center Team write new  post about SCOM and VMM vision

For the folks onsite at MMS with us, hope you are having a great time! For the rest of us, we’re trying our best to keep you informed of the happenings in here!

Among a ton of exciting vision from Bob Muglia’s keynote yesterday, we’re also announcing the capability set that we are working on for the next version of System Center. Our goal is to provide a unified management solution that delivers datacenter services across physical, virtual and cloud environments using an integrated app/service-centric model.

With that in mind, I’ve included below some of the Dynamic IT / cloud capabilities that Virtual Machine Manager vNext and Operations Manager vNext will deliver to lower operational expense and increase agility in the enterprise datacenter. Some of these capabilities will take a few cycles to fully realize, but we’re going to get rolling on them in the next version J

System Center Virtual Machine Manager

  • Service lifecycle management, including creation, deployment and updates to cloud apps/services – Leverages app virtualization technology and service modeling to perform image-based service composition, deployment and updates.
  • Creation of private clouds – Enables “Infrastructure as a Service” for the enterprise datacenter and allows self-service scenarios; discovery and assignment of logical/virtualized network and storage pools to apps/services
  • Federation across clouds – Enables workload mobility between on-premises, service provider and public clouds (e.g. Windows Azure) in a secure manner
  • Policy-based dynamic resource optimization – Ensure optimal utilization of your datacenter resources (e.g. policy driven power management), deeper Operations Manager/PRO integration
  • Deeper Opalis Integration – Offers deeper integration with Opalis for enhanced orchestration and automation across multiple sub-systems

System Center Operations Manager

  • Unified on-premises and cloud monitoring – Enables hybrid cloud deployment scenarios with “single pane of glass” monitoring
  • Outside in/end user experience monitoring for geo distributed cloud services (based on synthetic transactions)
  • Service oriented network and storage monitoring (e.g. monitor and troubleshoot network and storage resource pools assigned to services)

Also check out this video I recorded to get additional information on our Datacenter vision and SCOM/VMM vNext.

Finally, I also wanted to highlight the Dynamic Infrastructure Toolkit for System Center, which will allow you to build your private cloud foundation very soon to help you accelerate your journey to the cloud. What’s more, this solution is built on top of technology you currently have and are very familiar with – System Center and Windows Server!

We will provide additional details on these capabilities (and others) as we finalize them!

Look forward to hear your thoughts,

Microsoft’s Desktop Virtualization product line as of 2009

December 29, 2009 1 comment

Gabe Knuth has wrote a very good article about Microsoft’s Desktop Virtualization product line as of 2009

Last up in our rundown of the Big 5’s desktop virtualization product lines is Microsoft.  This is probably the most ambiguous vendor, because so many of their products intertwine to make up their solution.  Many of those products have been around for a very long time, and in other capacities, so it’s not easy to pick which products to focus on.  To make it easier, this article will only cover the products listed on Microsoft’s Virtualization Products and Technologies website. (http://www.microsoft.com/virtualization/en/us/products-server.aspx)
