When creating the integration between Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 and Operations Manager 2012 R2 , the integration fails with the following error:
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.
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
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
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
Remove the old version of the Microsoft Virtualization Core Library and try Integration again.
Today, Cireson makes official the news that Travis Wright Microsoft Principal Program Manager will join Cireson. Anyone works with System Center already know Travis as SC Guru and Service Manager Hero.
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
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:
- Operating system supported by System Center 2012 SP1
For a list of supported operating systems, see System Requirements for System Center 2012 SP1.
Note — System Center 2012 SP1 Configuration Analyzer does not support Windows Server 2012 Core.
- Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.1
This can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center.
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.
To deploy the Operations Manager web part
