connection problem SCVMM Admin Console with Virtual Machine Manager

Hi, on virtual machine where is installed TFS 2010 rtm I've installed SCVMM and Admin Console as shown in the video: Video 1 - Setup and Configure Lab Managementfrom http://blogs.msdn.com/b/lab_management/archive/2010/02/11/visual-studio-lab-management-videos.aspx .But when after installaion I'm running SCVMM Admin Console, enter: "labvmm:8100" always I have got:

"VMM is unable to connect to the Virtual Machine Manager server labvmm because the specified computer name could not be resolved.

Close and then reopen the Virtual Machine Manager Administrator Console, and then try the operation again. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator.

ID: 1601"

What could be a problem?

Here are a couple of things to try:

Make sure the SCVMM Service is running on the SVCMM host Make sure that the machine  named labvmm can be resolved correctly (try running nslookup labvmm from a command prompt) If you are running the SCVMM client locally try using localhost and see if that works If you are running the SCVMM client remotely make sure that there's no firewall blocking port 8100 on the SCVMM server



Answer 2

After some time, "localhost" started work (with labvmm still doesn't work). So, now, when I configuring Lab Manager. What I have to write down in "SCVMM Server Name (FQDN)"?  labvmm.lab.cos.it doesn't work. What should I do now?

Answer 3

It sounds like an issue with the DNS settings. Have you tried running nslookup?

Answer 4

What I verify by this? And how can I check it?

Otherwise, the following error occerred when I enter full comuter name in SCVMM Server Name (FQDN): "TF255848: You have chosen to configure 'Full name' as your Team Foundation Server and System center Virtual Machine Manager Server. To enable Lab Manager on this setup you need  to change the Team Foundation Server's service account from 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE' to valid domain account"


Answer 5

I've read that the first step after configured SCVMM is to grant the TFS service user permissions to administer VMM (the TFS service account should be NT Authority\NetworkService). But in my case in VMM Administrator -> Administration -> User Roles -> Admnistrator I connot add new members 'TFSService'. there is not it..

Answer 6

What I was after was to verify that you have connectivity between the machines and that the name lookup works properly. As for the account you can change the TFS service account in the Team Foundation Admin Console.

Have you gone through the setup guide: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd380687.aspx? If not I recommend you step through it and see if there's something you missed.


Answer 7

Yes, but I installed  SCVMM on virtual  macheine so I connont Set Up and Configure Hyper-V Hosts there. I thought besides this, installation SCVMMM on virtual machine  is the same. Whether there areother steps??
