SCOM and OMS: Error 2200: Unable to register the Advisor Service

December 3, 2015 at 8:48 am in Azure, OMS, SCOM by Florent


Today, I tried to connect my SCOM 2012 R2 UR8 to OMS. So I follow the step-by-step on TechNet and I had this error:

Error 2200: Unable to register to Advisor Server. Please contact the system Administrator.


After few investigation, I found that by default, the new management pack for OMS (Advisor) was not imported. So, I added it. The source of these MP updates are located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\Management Packs for Update Rollups. The following MP has been imported:

  • Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.Internal.mpb
  • Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.mpb
  • Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.Resources.ENU.mpb
  • Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Library.mpb


When it’s done, close your SCOM console and reopen it. You will see that the name is now Operations Management Suite and not Advisor:


You can now perform the new connection to OMS:
