How to Manually Configure Operations Manager for VMM 2008 R2

Updated: January 22, 2011

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

If your Virtual Machine Manager server is in a different Active Directory domain than the Operations Manager root management server that you will use to manage VMM and its components, do not use the Configure Operations Manager option of the VMM Setup Wizard. Instead, use the following procedure to configure System Center Operations Manager 2007 with SP1 or later for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 R2.

For information about Operations Manager 2007 SP1, see the Operations Manager 2007 Service Pack 1 Upgrade Package (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=196293). For information about Operations Manager 2007 R2, see the Operations Manager 2007 R2 TechCenter (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=178707).

To ensure a successful integration, do not perform this procedure without first performing the integration tasks that precede this one, as described in Configuring Operations Manager Integration with VMM.

If you are using a highly available Operations Manager root management server for VMM, you will perform steps 1-4 on the active cluster member. In step 5, you must install a VMM Administrator Console on all cluster members.

To manually configure Operations Manager for VMM

  1. Log on to your Operations Manager root management server under a domain account that has Administrator rights on the local computer and is a member of the Administrator user role in Operations Manager. If you are using a highly available root management server, log on to the active cluster member.

  2. Add the VMM service account to the Administrator role in Operations Manager. For instructions, see How to Add Members to the Administrator Role in Operations Manager 2007.

  3. Restart the Operations Manager SDK service on the root management server. In Operations Manager 2007 SP1, the service name is OpsMgr SDK Service. In Operations Manager 2007 R2, the service name is System Center Data Access.

  4. In the Operations console for Operations Manager, import the VMM 2008 R2 Management Pack. You can import the management pack files from the amd64\VirtualizationMP folder on your VMM 2008 R2 installation media.

  5. Install the VMM Administrator Console on the root management server. For instructions, see Installing the VMM Administrator Console (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=121007).

    If you are using a highly available root management server, you must install a VMM Administrator Console on every cluster member. You need not install a console on the active cluster member; a VMM Administrator Console was installed on the active cluster member in the previous procedure, when you configured the root management server.

    If the VMM server is in a disjointed namespace, you must identify it by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
