Please follow the following blogposts to integrate both products and have the Pro Tips enabled: http://blogs.technet.com/rakeshm/archive/2008/07/08/scvmm-2008-and-ops-manager.aspx

Hyper-V update for issues that may occur when you manage the Hyper-V role on the 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2008 by using SCVMM:

After the integration services are installed, performance counters for storage devices that are attached to the emulated IDE controller are not reported. For example, the performance counters for storage devices report 0 even though files are being transferred on the related storage devices.

Virtual machines may stop responding while performance monitor data is being collected.
The Hyper-V Networking Management Service may stop responding to incoming requests.
