Create Connectors

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Service Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Service Manager

Connectors import data from System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), System Center 2012 – Operations Manager, and System Center 2012 - Orchestrator to the Service Manager database. Connectors can also import logical networks, virtual machine templates and storage classifications from VMM, policies from Orchestrator, and operational data from Operations Manager.


Data from external systems that is imported into the database can be edited using the corresponding form. However, when the connectors are synchronized, all changes will be overwritten.

A service provider must create the VMM, Operations Manager, and Orchestrator connectors before performing additional configuration procedures.

Use these procedures to create connectors.
