SCVMM 2012: vSphere 5 support?

09 May

Hi everyone,

in my current project my objective was to use SCVMM 2012 in conjunction with SCOM 2012 to provide monitoring on hypervisors primarily and simplify administration secondarily.

Unfortunatley, SCVMM 2012 doesn’t support VMWare vSphere 5 at all.

Microsoft has stated the supported versions of VMWare on Technet:

Despite that I tried to connect to a vCenter server in order to import the VMWare infrastructure, however this resulted in a complete crash of SCVMM 2012 and all functionality went down the drain…

So now I have to monitor the VMWare environment using the nWorks Management Pack from Veeam.

Why oh why, Microsoft, is VMWare vSphere support not included in SCVMM 2012.

I guess we need to wait until SP1.

So if you want to manage vSphere 5 with SCVMM 2012, just don’t.

It won’t work unfortunately…
