Using Infrastructure Servers in VMM

Updated: January 22, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Infrastructure server support has been added to System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager. This feature allows you to add servers (that are not VMM host servers) as managed computers that support hosting services to support your infrastructure. For example, you can add managed servers that support services such as Active Directory, DNS, DCHP, Operations Manager, Service Manager, and File Servers. So, where VMM servers are listed by roles such as Host or Library, the additional servers that can be added as managed servers will be listed under the role of Infrastructure.

All managed servers must be running Windows Server 2012 R2.

You can perform the following procedures on infrastructure servers:

  • Create baselines for infrastructure nodes using existing VMM baseline tools and processes.

  • Apply baselines to all infrastructure nodes once they are added as managed computers.

  • View compliance status of infrastructure nodes after baselines have been applied.

  • Orchestrate remediation to the infrastructure nodes using existing baseline tools and procedures.

In This Section

Follow these procedures to when using infrastructure servers in VMM.
