  • Hello!

    You can find the SCVMM 2016 management pack on the link below:

    System Center 2016 Management Pack for Virtual Machine Manager
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54113


    And below you will find a documentation on how to integrate SCVMM with SCOM:

    Integrate VMM with Operations Manager for monitoring and reporting
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/vmm/monitors-ops-manager?view=sc-vmm-2016


    If you have any further questions, feel free to ask!

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • You need the SCOM console on the SCVMM server because SCVMM need the binaries, powershell etc.. to connect to the SCOM SDK.

  • Yes you will be able to see health states, alerts etc in the SCOM console on your SCOM management server, there should be added a Virtual Machine Manager folder in the Monitoring tab within the SCOM console.

    The SCVMM management pack need to be extracted to the SCVMM server (default location is C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\Virtual Machine Manager\ManagementPacks) and then imported to SCOM.

    Hi Leon

    what is the purpose for extracting scvmm MP to VMM server , why we don't extract it to scom server and imported from there like other MPs?

  • In earlier versions of System Center there were some issues with the management pack provided in the RTM version of SCVMM.

    I'm not entirely sure how it is with SCVMM 2016, but you will probably want to use the latest SCVMM management pack either way, the latest management pack might contain fixes and updates.

    The documentation also recommends to get the latest management pack for SCVMM.

  • Because VMM "imports" the updated management packs when you perform the SCOM integration, this is also why you need the SCOM console installed on the VMM server and why you need a VMM admin and SCOM admin run as account / service account.

    One caveat you will find, if you have a highly secure environment, is getting good documentation from the product group about the run as account requirements for VMM integration.  The default account is associated with EVERY computer/agent, so if you populate that run as account with an id that doesnt have log on local to those agents, you will get a ton of alerts.

    Furthermore, the run as account only needs to be distributed too and have log on local to scom management servers, VMM admin servers, and any HyperV servers (I believe).  I have a case open with msft asking for the exact requirements because the documentation doesn't make it clear.

    One thing to also understand, unlike previous versions of this MP, where the dashboards worked, the new MP has no dashboards.  I didn't find it added a lot of value for the effort to do the integration.

  • Hi,

    After we download, extract and import the management pack (on the operations manager server), the VMM folder appears in the Monitoring pane, just as SQL and Exchange management pack.



    the folder appears:



    Things to note: 
    1, to use the management pack, the SCOM version should be 7.2.11759.0 (SCOM2016 UR1) or above
    2, the management pack needs other MP's support. If operations manager server has Internet access, we may click the Resolve to handle the dependencies.



    For routine monitoring, this seems to be enough, and there is no need to perform extra tasks (for example, extract the management pack, install the operations console) on the VMM server. If we need to integrate VMM with operations manager, we can follow the link provided by Leon to make extra configuration in the VMM server.

    Hope the above information helps.

    Regards,

    Alex Zhu
