VMM 2012 Addendum Management Pack: Detect Failed VMM Jobs

Background My MVP friend Flemming Riis needed OpsMgr to alert on failed VMM jobs. After discovering that the native VMM MPs don’t have a workflow for this, I have offered my help and built this addendum MP to alert failed and warning (Completed w/ Info) VMM jobs: I thought it is going to be a quick task, turned out, I started writing this MP about 1 month ago and only able to release it now! The actual MP is pretty simple, 2 rules sharing a same data source which executes a PowerShell script to detect any failed and warning jobs

Installing VMM 2012 R2 Cluster in My Lab

I needed to build a 2-node VMM 2012 R2 cluster in my lab in order to test an OpsMgr management pack that I’m working on. I was having difficulties getting it installed on a cluster based on 2 Hyper-V guest VMs, and I couldn’t find a real step-to-step detailed dummy guide. So after many failed attempts and finally got it installed, I’ll document the steps I took in this post, in case I need to do it again in the future. AD Computer accounts: I pre-staged 4 computer accounts in the existing OU where my existing VMM infrastructure is located: VMM01
