VMMService Keeps Crashing

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I have been struggling today, whenever I try and deploy a service VMMSerive always crashes at the point where it tries to communicate with the guest machine to install the agent and rolls.

    In the event log I have the below. The Guests and VMM 2012 server are seperated by a Microsoft TMG VM. Has anyone any ideas why VMM2012 is always crashing.

    Also can someone point me to where I can get instruction on how to take traces to submit.

  • Thanks Kristian,

    I resolved the issue, I was trying to deply a service to a seperate forest, the forest had no trust relationship :( and it crashed the VMService.

    But it gets better, I had deployed VMM 2012 as local service as well which when the trust relationship was established still caused service deployment to fail. I created a child domain to test will and discovered that VMM 2012 was trying to put it's computer account in the local administrators group of the machine which obvioulsy would fail for a child domain.

    I then attempted to change the VMM install to use a service account but ran into lots of permission issues so I am reinstalling VMM 2012 on another server from scratch using a service account!!

    Thanks for the pointer for the traces.
