Update Rollup 2 for System Center 2019 Virtual Machine Manager

Applies to: System Center 2019 Virtual Machine Manager

Introduction


This article describes the issues that are fixed in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2019 UR2 release. There are two updates that are available for Virtual Machine Manager, one for the Virtual Machine Manager server and one for the Administrator Console (x86 and amd64). This article also contains the installation instructions for this update.

Issues that are fixed


  • VM cross cluster migration fails intermittently when SOFS file share is used as shared storage.
  • Performance counter data extracted using the rule “Micrososft.SystemCenter.VirtualMahcineManager.2016.CLoudUsageCollection ” is not stored correctly in OperationsManagerDW DB.
  • Performance counter ‘NetworkIOsent’ returning incorrectly as 0 when running the command Get-SCPerformanceData -VM $VM -PerformanceCounter ‘NetworkIOSent.
  • Adding a VLAN in Logical Network properties (Network Site screen) fails by throwing an error message that IP address should be in the range.
  • If a cluster is provisioned with local disks using external storage and same drive letters are assigned to disks on different nodes of cluster, then VMM shows duplicate drives. If a VM is created on one of these disks, then VM refresh might fail.
  • VMM SCOM integration fails with multiple ‘DiscoveryDataInvalidRelationshipSourceExceptionOM10’ exceptions.
  • Port mirroring information configured by SDN gets cleared by SCVMM.
  • Adding a node to a cluster externally via Failover cluster manager and then adding it to VMM makes the node stuck in ‘pending state’.
  • For a VM when a self-service user is granted/revoked access, although the VM is visible, but the console connect permissions are not granted/revoked readily. Hence the console connect for the VM fails for self-service user until VM is refreshed.
  • Creating a VM with VM Template where answer file is used and either Windows OS 7,8 or 10 is selected, encounters "unable to find a value for one or more required Sysprep parameters” error.
  • Gateway IPv4 frontend subnet is switched to HNV logical network in VMM console for an existing SDN deployment.
  • VMM making large number of REST calls to NC as part of periodic host refresh.

Other Improvements and Features


  • Support for Red Hat 8.0, CentOS 8, Debian 10, Ubuntu 20.04 Linux Operating system is added.
  • Support renewal of self-signed certificates generated by VMM.
  • Support for ESXi 6.7 hosts
  • User experience improvements in creating logical switches
  • Support for SDN IPv6 deployment.
  • Provision to set affinity between virtual network adapters and physical adapters
