HI Guys


i have research the problem extensively and verified all the accounts on both SCVMM 2012 R2 and SCOM 2007 R2 and with NO success :(


i decided to log a call with Microsoft and here are the findings:


To summarize our live meeting session yesterday:


1) During SCOM 2007 R2 and SCVMM 2012R2 integration we got the following error message.

Error 25904 : A connection already exists. Remove the existing connection and then try the operation again.


2) We opened a PowerShell window on the SCVMM Server and tried to remove the already existing connection with the following Powershell command.

Remove-SCOpsMgrConnection -force

During this operation we were confronted with a new problem. (Screenshot below)



3) After some research we found out that this problem can be caused by scvmm service account permissions.

4) We immediately checked the SCVMM Service account permissions on the Virtual Manager DB and SCOM. We added the SCVMM Service account to the SCOM Administrators and also changed the SCOM VMM Run As Account from Admin to SCVMM Account.

5) Afterwards we logged on to the SCVMM Server with the SCVMM Service account and tried to execute the Remove-SCOpsMgrConnection –force again. We were able to successfully run the command.

6) We then tried again to integrate the SCOM and SCVMM again. This time we got the following error message.



7) After some research we decided to restart the SCVMM and SCOM Services and the SCVMM Job did not fail like before. This time the Job run as expected but now it failed with the following error message. It now reported a problem with the SCOM Management Pack. We checked immediately the Virtual Machine Manager Management Pack versions and identified that these are old.





------------------- Error Report -------------------

Base Exception Target Site=unknown

Base Exception Assembly name=unknown

Base Exception Method Name=unknown

Exception Message=XSD verification failed for management pack. [Line: 1, Position: 17]


Build bit-size=64


7) We decided to install the Virtual Machine Manager 2012 R2 Management Pack and saw that it requires some other core Windows 2012 R2 MP’s. We decided to not install the newer MP’s because of backward compatibility. Some MP’s overrides the older MP’s and some creates newer one.





Because of all the above occurrence’s it looks like that SCOM 2007 R2 isn’t compatible with 2012 R2. We agreed to ask our Product Team and wait for a response. As already mentioned one the phone I could not find any kb article regarding supported or not. Neither public not internal no kb article is available regarding this topic.


sorry i cannot attach screenshots

Finally Microsoft came back to me with the findings AND VERSION COMPATIBILITY.




And this is the response today:

| | System Center 2012 – Operations Manager |


| VMM in System Center 2012 SP1 | Operations Manager in System Center 2012 SP1 |


| VMM in System Center 2012 R2 | Operations Manager in System Center 2012 R2 |
