  • If MAP was able to successfully collect performance data, the tool should allow you to run the server consolidation scenario. One hour of performance data should be enough to use the tool, but it may not be adequate to capture the actual performance of the servers.

    You can check a couple of things...

    Check whether you are able to generate performance data report or not? After you generate the report, check whether MAP was able to collect perf data from the servers or not.

    In case you cancelled perf collection during the previous runs, post processing step may not have executed, which can cause this issue. If that is the case, you can workaround by  changing one or more assessment properties used for Windows Server assessment, run the Windows Server Assessment and then try running Server Consolidation scenario.

  • Hi Kdan,

    I have a list of servers that has been inventoried, and perfomance metrics has been collected on some of them, but the Server consolidation wizard won't start unless all metrics has been collected from all servers.

    Note: The tool ran for over 24 hours, I guess some the servers were shutdown during the perfomance scan, so it couldn't collect metrics from such.

    However, I would like to be able to run the consolidation wizard on only those systems that have a completed metrics collected.

    Is there a way to go around this with the MAP 5.0 tool?
