#Microsoft System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager Component Add-ons and Extensions #SCVMM

 

Overview

The following System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager add-ons and extensions are available for download:

VM Recovery Tool
The stand-alone Virtual Machine Recovery Tool works with System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) to temporarily remove a host, cluster, virtual machine, or service from VMM when that object is in a failed or persistent warning state due to environmental conditions, third-party applications, or other causes. After resetting the state of the object, once VMM refreshes, the object will appear as healthy in VMM. This tool does not repair a damaged or incorrectly created virtual machine or corrupt .vhd file. It deals with state information stored in the VMM database. For additional details about the tool, see Using the Virtual Machine Recovery Tool for System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

Important

This program is not a supported part of the VMM product. This program is offered “as-is”.

Virtual Machine Manager Configuration Analyzer (VMMCA)
The VMMCA is your first line of defense in troubleshooting an issue in the System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager environment. VMMCA is a diagnostic tool you can use to evaluate important configuration settings for computers that are either running VMM server roles or are acting as virtual machine hosts. The VMMCA scans the hardware and software configurations of the computers you specify, evaluates them against a set of predefined rules, and then provides you with error messages and warnings for any configurations that are not optimal.

Important

    • You can run VMMCA on a computer that is running the VMM Console or on the VMM management server.
    • You should use this version of the VMMCA with System Center 2012- Virtual Machine Manager only. For VMM 2008, VMM 2008 R2, and VMM 2008 R2 SP1, utilize the version found here.

Microsoft Product Support Reporting Tool (MPSRPT)
You can use the Virtual Machine Manager MPS Reporting Tool for System Center 2012 to gather detailed system status and configuration information from the VMM management server as well as all managed virtual machine hosts and VMM server roles.

The tool offers the ability to select the particular scenarios for which system configuration data will be gathered.

The Virtual Machine Manager MPS Reporting Tool for System Center 2012 gathers the following diagnostic data for the VMM management server, the virtual machine hosts and library servers that the VMM management server manages, and physical to virtual conversion (P2V) source computers:

  • Virtual Machine Manager traces
  • Virtual Machine Manager database
  • Windows event logs and virtual server event logs
  • IP address
  • Virtual Machine Manager setup logs
  • SQL Server setup logs
  • Registry information
  • Open ports information
  • System Information (msinfo)

#Microsoft Windows Server “8” Beta and #SCVMM2012 Controle…….

The looks and feels for Controle in Windows Server “8” Beta are Much better in view and easy to use.

In one view you see that there is a Service problem on your Server.

Just Double Click on the Red Services and you see the problem :

This was a failed Services, only right click on the services to restart.

For trouble shooting and performance in Windows Server “8” Beta is all looking better :

You can filter on the processen by Selecting them, here you can see that for SCVMM2012 and SQL2012 Server.

Memory usage for applications and services looks like this :

Here you can see on the Windows Server “8” Beta Hypervisor, the memory usage of SCVMM Console but also of the VirtualMachine Viewer.

By Filtering you can see the Memory Usage of the Services of SCVMM2012 and SQL2012 Server.
The views and the controles are easy to use on Windows Server “8” Beta

Microsoft #SQL2012 reporting for System Center 2012 SP1 CTP VMM on Windows “8” Beta #SCVMM2012 #Windows8

This topic is about reporting SQL 2012 for System Center 2012 SP1 CTP Virtual Machine Manager under Windows “8” Beta Server.

If you open Microsoft SQL 2012 Management Studio and go to the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database :

Here you can make the following standard reports by SQL 2012 Server about Virtual Machine Manager :

  • Disk Usage
  • Disk Usage by Top Tables
  • Disk Usage by Table
  • Disk Usage by Partition
  • Backup and Restore Events
  • All Transactions
  • All Blocking Transactions
  • Top Transactions by Age
  • Top Transactions by Blocked Transactions Count
  • Top Transactions by locks Count
  • Resource locking statistics by Objects
  • Obeject Execution Statistics
  • Database Consistency History
  • Index Usage Statistics
  • Index Physical Statistics
  • Schema Changes History
  • User Statistics

Here are some examples of the reports you can run with SQL 2012 Management Studio :

This is a report on the disk Usage of the VMM Database running on Windows “8” Server Beta with SQL 2012.

Here you see the User Statistics of System Center Virtual Machine Manager.

Here you see the Usage by Partion of the SQL DataBase of SCVMM.

When you don’t have Microsoft System Center Operations Manager installed, standard reporting of SQL 2012 Server is handy to use.
You can also make your Custom report in SQL 2012 for SCVMM DataBase.
