Updated: August 14, 2009

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

In Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 or VMM 2008 R2, pending hosts are cluster nodes that VMM discovers and that are not currently being managed by VMM.

To add pending hosts to Virtual Machine Manager

  1. In the VMM Administrator Console, click the Hosts view.

  2. In the Filters area, expand Status, and then select the Pending check box.

    The results pane is now filtered to display only hosts that have a Pending status.

  3. In the results pane, click a host with a Pending status and then, in the Actions pane, click Add to host cluster.

  4. In the Add Hosts to Host Cluster dialog box, enter the credentials for an account that has administrator rights on the host, and then click OK.
