How to Update Your Operations Manager Integration After Upgrading to VMM 2008 R2 SP1

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

If you are migrating to System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) from VMM 2008 R2, and you have previously integrated System Center Operations Manager 2007 with VMM 2008 R2, this topic explains how to update the Operations Manager integration for VMM 2008 R2 with SP1. To do this, you must upgrade the System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 Management Packs for Operations Manager 2007.


If you are a new VMM customer deploying VMM 2008 R2 with SP1, use the procedures in How to Integrate Operations Manager with VMM 2008 R2 to perform your initial Operations Manager integration.

Before you begin


You do not have to upgrade Operations Manager 2007. VMM 2008 R2 with SP1 supports Operations Manager 2007 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Operations Manager 2007 R2.

To update your Operations Manager integration after migrating to VMM 2008 R2 SP1

  1. Log on to your Operations Manager root management server under a domain account that has Administrator rights on the local computer and is a member of the Operations Manager Administrator user role. You cannot perform this procedure as a local user.


    If you have not been added to this role, see How to Add Members to the Administrator Role in Operations Manager 2007.

  2. Open the Operations console, and display a list of the current management packs:

    1. On the Start menu, click All Programs, click System Center Operations Manager 2007, and then click Operations Console.

    2. Display Administration view by clicking the Administration button beneath the navigation pane.

    3. In the navigation pane, click the Management Packs node.

  3. Upgrade all management packs with names that begin with “System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008”. To upgrade the management packs, select Import MP and select all the management packs in the \amd64\VirtualizationMP folder on the product CD for import.

  4. On the VMM server, use the Windows PowerShell – Virtual Machine Manager command shell to specify the root Operations Manager server in VMM:

    1. To open Windows PowerShell – VMM, on the Start menu, click All Programs, click Microsoft System Center, click Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, and then click Windows PowerShell – Virtual Machine Manager.

    2. At the PS> prompt, enter the following cmdlet, where <OpsMgrServerName> is the name of the Operations Manager root management server:

      Set-VMMServer -OpsMgrServer <OpsMgrServerName>

    You must perform this step to force a new discovery of the Operations Manager root management server, even if you retained your VMM database when you upgraded to VMM 2008 R2 with SP1.

  5. On all other Operations Manager servers, open the Windows PowerShell – Virtual Machine Manager command shell. If you see a prompt, type A to select [A]lways to always trust remote signed scripts from this snap-in.

  6. If you did not retain your VMM 2008 R2 database when you upgraded to VMM 2008 R2 with SP1, you will need to reconfigure reporting and PRO in VMM:
