Connecting SCVMM 2012 R2 With SCOM 2012 R2? Don’t Forget The Legacy MPs…

When connecting SCVMM with SCOM there are certain requirements to be met. On the SCOM side of things for instance you need the SQL, IIS and Server OS MPs to be in place. Otherwise the SCVMM MP – imported when integrating SCVMM with SCOM – won’t fly because of their references.

My test lab however runs for now only the ‘Latest & Greatest’. So it’s Windows Server 2012 R2 and all the SC 2012 R2 components. So why import MPs referring to older technologies? Let’s keep it lean & mean.

However, the SCVMM 2012 R2 integration with SCOM 2012 R2 didn’t succeed at the first run. This is the error message I got:

Yes, ALL the required MPs themselves were already imported. Only the parts referring to older technologies (IIS 2003 and IIS 2008) weren’t imported simply because they’re not present in the test lab.

However, the SCVMM MP refers to these older MP components and when missing it results in a failure of their import which bombs the fist integration attempt.

Until the SCVMM MP uses references to newer versions of the IIS MP, you’ll have to import these older IIS MPs. Otherwise the integration between SCVMM 2012 R2 and SCOM 2012 R2 won’t fly at all.
