Enabling Microsoft Windows Hyper-V VM replication monitoring RRS feed

  • Question

  • in our SCOM 2012 R2, under Monitoring > Microsoft Windows Hyper-V, we only see a handful of our Windows Server 2012 Standard Hyper-V servers.   Not sure why we're not seeing more of our 2012 Hyper-V servers.  For the VMs on these Hyper-V servers, we get VM replication cycle alerts when the VMs miss a threshold of replication cycles, which is valuable to us.  Is there a special setting we have to enable for our other 2012 Hyper-V servers to see them under Monitoring > Microsoft Windows Hyper-V?

    Our SCOM agents are all at 7.1.10184.0

  • Hello,

    Do you mean that you want to monitor virtual machines in the hyper-v host? Have you installed agent on those virtual machines?

    I hope the article below can be helpful for you:

  • It appears that only Windows 2012 non-R2 HyperV servers are appearing under "Monitoring > Microsoft Windows Hyper-V".  There was one Windows 2012 HyperV server under "Monitoring > Microsoft Windows Hyper-V" which got updated to R2, and SCOM now reports in the events that it's unable to communicate with that server's HyperV virtual machine management service.

    Shouldn't the HyperV 2012 monitoring MP be able to handle Server 2012 R2, unless there's a new MP for 2012 R2?

    Or would updating the SCOM agent be sufficient?
