  • Virtual machines in VMWare that connect by the using Cisco N1000V dvSwitch are unavailable for management from Virtual Machine Manager.
  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager service crashes if you disable one of the teamed network adapters.
  • The Get-Scstoragearray -host command should return storage arrays that are visible to a host that is using zoning.
  • During the discovery of a network-attached storage (NAS) provider, the credentials that are used do not include a domain name.

  • A query to find the certificate should match both the subject name and the friendly name because FindBySubjectName is a wildcard search.

    The system cannot find the path specified (0x80070003)

  • Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) cannot be mounted on a host because VHD conflicts with other disks because of a stale entry that was left in the dictionary of Virtual Machine Manager memory.
  • Differencing disk based deployment may fail because the parent disk is being refreshed as noncached.
