Update Rollup 10 for System Center 2016 Virtual Machine Manager

Applies to: Microsoft System Center 2016 Virtual Machine Manager

Introduction


This article describes the issues that are fixed in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2016 UR10 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 ‘NetworkIOsent’ returning incorrectly as 0 when running the command Get-SCPerformanceData -VM $VM -PerformanceCounter ‘NetworkIOSent.
  • 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.
  • Performance counter dataextracted using the rule “Micrososft.SystemCenter.VirtualMahcineManager.2016.CLoudUsageCollection” is not stored correctly in OperationsManagerDW DB.
  • Port mirroring information configured by SDN gets cleared by SCVMM.
  • 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.
  • Replication health status is displayed incorrectly in VMM with respect to Hyper-V replication health status.
  • VMM to SCOM Integration fails to discover some objects like Host due to DiscoveryDataInvalidRelationshipSourceException in one or more Connectors for VSwitchHostsVPort relationship.
  • Creating a VM with VM Template where answer file is used and either Windows OS 7,8 or 10 is selected, results in "unable to find a value for one or more required Sysprep parameters” error.  

Other Improvements and Features


  • Support renewal of self-signed certificates generated by VMM. The new cmdlets are available here.
