Operations Manager 2012 connector Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 Error 10218

September 24, 2012

With the brand new SP1 Beta voor System Center 2012 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:

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.
