Error Installing VMM 2008


  • I'm trying to install VMM 2008 on a Windows 2008 VM.
    The domain is in windows 2000 native mode .
    The setup fails with the following error 

    A Hardware Management error has occurred trying to contact server Check that WinRM is installed and running on server For more information use the command "winrm helpmsg hresult".
    ID: 2927. Details: Unknown error (0x803380f7)
    I tried all the suggestion found  on the blog but with no luck

    Can anyone help me with it ?

  • At a minimum, SCVMM 2008 requires a Windows 2003 functional-level domain to install.

  • Hi ,
     I didn't find any reference to such prerequisite in the SCVMM documentation .
     I've also opened a case with PSS and even if it's almost clear that such problem can be related to domain functional level they also agreed on the fact that were no mention of that in the documentation .

  • I had the exact problem and I was able to solve it. \
    1)Domain must be in Win 2003 mode
    2) I disabled my antivirus during Installation
    3) Add to Administrator Group the built in account NETWORK SERVICES
    4) VMM 2008 uses Kerberos Auth so in Server Manager >> Configuration >> WMI Control >> Properties >> Security (tab)
      I give full rights to LOCAL and NETWORK SERVICES accounts to the VMM Folders

    I hope this can help!

    Best Regards
