Mike has been knocking issues out of the park. Here's a tip that might help during SCVMM install. He's seen this a few times...  Thanks Mike!

 

Issue

Unable to complete VMM2008 installation

 

Error message

“Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 has stopped working"

 

Things to check

1.       Is the account used to install VMM2008 a member of local admins group? http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc764327.aspx

2.       Is the server in a disjointed name space? http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc764231.aspx

3.       Is the functional level of the domain is either W2K3 or W2K8?  This is a hard requirement.  http://blogs.technet.com/chengw/archive/2008/06/04/managing-hosts-in-windows-2000-ad-forest-by-using-vmm-2008.aspx

 

>>> ServerSetup.log <<<

*** Carmine error was: ComputerNameInvalid (403)

 

 

Resolution

The computer name of the server intended to become the VMM2008 server was "MY-COMPUTER-NAME”.  We renamed to "MYCOMPUTERNAME" and also removed the corresponding entry in the local HOSTS file.  This allowed the installation to complete as expected.
