Operations Manager 2012 connector Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 Error 10218

September 24, 2012

With the brand new SP1 Beta voor System Center 2012 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34607 an issue is found with using the connector between Operations Manager (OpsMgr) and Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) after SP1 Beta is installed on the VMM machine.

To go back a few steps and explain how the connector is establisched i like to point out to a post from Kevin Holman where he describes this connector very well:

http://blogs.technet.com/b/kevinholman/archive/2012/08/21/integrating-vmm-2012-and-opsmgr-2012.aspx

Now as you can see the VMM management pack version used is 3.0.3019.0. In SP1 Beta however a new version is included: 3.1.3612.0

To use the same method Kevin did i removed the excisting connector in VMM, checked the Registry on the CompatibleMPVersion. The new MP’s are on the default location.
When an attempt is made to recreate the connector i constantly get the error 10218. This is strange because the required management packs are in place:

  • Windows Server Internet Information Services 2003
  • Windows Server 2008 Internet Information Services 7
  • Windows Server Internet Information Services Library
  • SQL Server Core Library

Ok, let’s try and do this in another way…
I decided to load these new management pack manually in OpsMgr.  And a few seconds later my problem shows up:

The Virtual Machine Manager Library depends on System Center Virtualisation Libray version 7.0.8430.0.

The one i have installed is:

Now i have found the source on the error 10218 VMM is giving me. All i need to do is upgrade this MP to the correct version. Strangely the wizard is not helping me out here by offering a resolution as in downloading this MP. I soon find out this is because this MP is not available for download yet.

Conclusion: a connector with OpsMgr will not work with VMM 2012 SP1 Beta.

Update 26-9-2012: When running OpsMgr 2012 SP1 it will work without any problems.
