New SCVMM 2008 Hotfix Rollup Package: 14 Sept 2010

12:59 pm in Uncategorized by mikeresseler

There is a new SCVMM 2008 Hotfix Rollup Package available.  Date is 14 September 2010 and it should solve following issues:

Issue 1

Duplicate virtual machines (VMs) may appear in the SCVMM Administrator Console window after a Hyper-V VM in a cluster fails over to another cluster node. Additionally, the status for one of the duplicate VMs is set to Missing. If you try to remove the missing VM from the SCVMM Administrator Console window, the VM is not removed.

Issue 2

Consider the following scenario:

  • You install the Hyper-V role on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You configure the computer to start from a virtual hard disk.
  • The computer is part of a Hyper-V failover cluster. The cluster is configured to use cluster shared volumes.
  • You try to create a VM on a cluster shared volume by using SCVMM 2008 R2.

In this scenario, the operation fails together with the 2912 (0x8004232C) error code.

Issue 3

The Virtual Machine Manager service (Vmmservice.exe) crashes if the following conditions are true:

  • System Center Operations Manager 2007 integration is enabled.
  • A Performance and Resource Optimization (PRO) feature-enabled management pack is imported into Operations Manager.
  • The PRO settings for a host group are changed on the SCVMM server.
