Error 2912 adding Windows 2008 x64 R2 server to VMM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a VMM Host machine which is a Windows 2008 x64 SP1. I'm attempting to add a host which is running Windows 2008 x64 R2. When the job runs to install the VMM Agent I'm receiving the following error:

    Error (2912)

    An internal error has occurred trying to contact an agent on the vhmipor05.manatron.com server.

    (The remote procedure call failed (0x800706BE))

    Recommended Action

    Ensure the agent is installed and running. Ensure the WS-Management service is installed and running, then restart the agent.

    The agent and WS-Management Service seem to be installed and running, however the Host shows as "Needing Attention" in VMM and that status shows "Connection Status" of Not Responding.

    On the host (R2) the Event log is showing errors every 2 minutes with the VMM Agent as follows:

    Faulting application name: vmmAgent.exe, version: 2.0.3444.0, time stamp: 0x48e73893

    Faulting module name: MSVCP80.dll, version: 8.0.50727.4927, time stamp: 0x4a27431a

    Exception code: 0xc0000005

    Fault offset: 0x000000000002ba5c

    Faulting process id: 0xf1c

    Faulting application start time: 0x01ca3bb60ba393d2

    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008\bin\vmmAgent.exe

    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.4927_none_88dce9872fb18caf\MSVCP80.dll

    ANY Ideas please?
    THANKS

  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 is the new and only release that supports Windows 2008 R2 hosts.

    VMM 2008 RTM is not tested with R2 hosts, so you might run into issues like this one that you are having.

  • so VMM 2008 RTM cannot manage R2 hosts? (funny we were able to add a couple of R2 hosts, but are having problems with just this one R2 host)?

    That is correct, that is the official support statement.

    So is the "stated support" for managing R2 Hosts is you need to run VMM R2?

    Correct.

    Will VMM R2 also manage 2008 RTM Hosts (non R2)?

    Yes.

    Will you be able to migrate guests from RMT to R2 with VMM R2 (and is that the reccomended management tool)?

  • What version of SCVMM are you running?

  • What's the best way to determine the current SCVMM version?

    We are NOT running SCVMM R2... however we have been able to add hosts that are running WIndows 2008 R2 Hyper-V and are having problems adding this one host.

  • To learn the version, tou can open VMM Admin console and look at Help->About.
    Version 2.0.3444.0 is the RTM version and  2.0.4271.0 is the R2 version.

    Please see the below link for supported OS lists for VMM versions.

  • We are running the RTM version of the Admin Console.

    I'm looking at the supplied link, but don't see where it answers my question.
    We have the RTM version of VMM Admin Console installed and have successfully add some Windows 2008 R2 Hyper-V hosts to be "managed" by the VMM admin Console, but are having problem adding 1 host with the error supplied above.
    THANKS for any ideas?

  • Any idea's?

    I have logs from the VMM server and Server host being added if those would help supply some information.

  • Thanks Uttara.

  • Ooops.. one followup questoin.

    I believe for SCVMM R2 to manage a RTM version of Hyper-V requires the RTM server to have SP2 installed?
    THANKS

  • Hiya,

    Yes.

    Minimum requirement for your host is SP2 if your running R2 of SCVMM.
