We have established in the network new Virtual Machine Manager 2012 RC. Integrated it with existing installation Operations Manager 2007 R2. We use only Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. All works normally.
But for all virtual servers have appeared аlert "VGS Services not installed".
To establish Virtual Guest Services we have stopped one of virtual servers and in VMM have pressed "Install Virtual Guest Services". Installation has passed without errors.
Have come into the virtual server, but haven't found out there established Virtual Guest Services. Watched the logs, in which there is no mention about installing VGS. Errors too aren't present.
Have repeated this procedure several times on different servers. The result is the same.
After we have found out folder on VMM server C:\Program Files\Virtual Machine Manager 2012\agents\Guest\amd64.
As we have understood it and there is that agent. We have copied it on the virtual server, have established. In system there was service VMMVMGuestAgent, it is started.
But SCOM and shows that VGS not installed. If to make Reset Health the monitor all the same comes back in condition Critical.
Probably we do something not so?

Thanks for reply.
And what about that when pressed in VMM "Install Virtual Guest Services" that services not established? At the same VMM reported that everything was installed properly. Its bug too?
And can we set the Virtual Guest Services on virtual machines independently from the folder C:\Program Files\Virtual Machine Manager 2012\ agents\ Guest\amd64?

Was this bug fixed ?
We have deployed SCOM/SCVMM 2012 RTM and get the same alert for most VM's, even though Hyper-v Integration components ARE installed
There are several other bugs as well I think.

I will try this and see if it resolved the issues we experience.
One thing, the download page states:

configuration identified in the mandatory configuration section of the
I'm unable to find this guide, its not included in the .msi file like other management packs, and no download link for the guide on that page.

Thursday, May 03, 2012 12:33 PMThanks, this did fix my issue and now only 1 VM that I know doesn't have VGS installed shows an alert.

I didn't find the update fixed the issue.
Monday, November 05, 2012 4:33 PMI installed the Monitoring Pack Update 1 and it fixed all of my VM VGS errors. I'm also running without Pro and Maintenance integration currently though.

Clustered VMM? We have two.
I installed the MP's from update one and set the reg as per technet and Kevin Holman as now the console takes over an hour to open. Have raised a call with Microsoft.
