System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and 2008 R2 Configuration Analyzer VMMCA

5:25 pm in Uncategorized by chanelwlkTB

Hey All,

Microsoft just released the new VMMCA for vmm 2008 and vmm 2008 r2.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=02d83950-c03d-454e-803b-96d1c1d5be24&displaylang=en

 

Brief Description

Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and 2008 R2 Configuration Analyzer (VMMCA) is a diagnostic tool that you can use to evaluate important configuration settings for computers that either are serving or might serve VMM roles or other VMM functions.

 

Important

  • You must install and run the VMMCA on the computer that either currently is or will become your VMM 2008 server.
  • You should use this version of the VMMCA with VMM 2008 and VMM 2008 R2 only. To download the VMMCA for VMM 2007, go tohttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=132136.

 

The VMMCA is a diagnostic tool you can use to evaluate important configuration settings for computers that either are serving or might serve VMM roles or other VMM functions. The VMMCA scans the hardware and software configurations of the computers you specify, evaluates them against a set of predefined rules, and then provides you with error messages and warnings for any configurations that are not optimal for the VMM role or other VMM function that you have specified for the computer.

 

I will soon post a blog about the results of the VMMCA.

 

Thanks,

Alexandre Verkinderen

Interesting Virtualization links

12:54 pm in Uncategorized by evilbart

Whilst preparing for the TechNet Virtualization roadshow I came across some interesting links to help me with the configuration of the integration of System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and System Center Operations Manager 2007.

Opsmgr 2007 Management Pack for Windows Server 2008:

How to integrate SCVMM and Opsmgr 2007:

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.
