SCVMM integration with Opsmgr fails with the error ID:10207

leave a comment »

How to recover from the error 10207 when performing the Administrator setup console stage:

Setup was not able to retrieve the service account from the specified Virtual Machine Manager server.
Specify a different VMM server and then try the operation again.

ID: 10207

Check if the SPN for the SCVMM service account is OK. Use the SETSPN -L, or check the account properties using ADSIEDIT or any other tool that allows you to confirm the SPN. If everything is ok you may need to recreate the SCP container that is under the SCVMM server account (In the picture bellow you can check that using the tool ADSIEDIT.msc).


To manually create this container, use the SCVMM CD and browse to the \Setup folder using command prompt.  Run CONFIGURESCPTOOL.EXE –INSTALL from that folder.  This should create the SCP, after running the cmd confirm the SCP creation using ADSIEdit.  Now rerun the integration setup and all steps should complete without errors.

Note: If you do uninstall/reinstall SCVMM then make sure you patch it to the level it was at before.  Up-to-date SCVMM agents cannot communicate with out-of-date SCVMM servers.

KB982501:The monitoring of SNMP devices may stop intermittently in System Center Operations Manager or in System Center Essentials

KB982501:The monitoring of SNMP devices may stop intermittently in System Center Operations Manager or in System Center Essentials

When you monitor some Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) devices by using System Center Operations Manager or System Center Essentials, the monitoring may stop intermittently. This issue affects the SNMP performance collection rules or the SNMP event monitors.

After you restart the OpsMgr Health service or the System Center Management service on the proxy agent, the monitoring of the SNMP devices continues as usual for a while. However, this issue may again occur sometime later. 

Additionally, the following event is logged in the Operations Manager log when this issue occurs:

Source: HealthService
Date: date
Event ID: 4000
Task Category: Health Service
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: computer name
A monitoring host is unresponsive or has crashed. The status code for the host failure was 2164195371.
