  • I've followed this tutorial to the letter.  The only difference in what you're describing here and what I actually have is that my instance of SQL Server is running locally instead of remotely.  No big deal.  I ran through the steps anyway and restarted everything.  Now the issue I'm running into is that if run SCVMM on the server itself, it connects locally and works just fine.  However if I connect from a remote client, it fails out with a 1604 error.  It says that my user is not authorized to access the server and to check the roles and make sure my user is a member.  Well my user is a member of the Administrators role and I still get the error.  If I change the service account back from domain\vmmservice to LocalSystem, the problem is just the opposite.  I can connect with a remote SCVMM console, but I cannot connect locally.  What am I missing here?  Also, you said to change the  VMMServiceAccount value in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine manager\Setup.  I could not find this registry key.  Was this a typo?  I was able to locate the value in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server\Setup.  I'll check back for any updates, but I would love to know if anyone else expriences these problems.

  • I have the exact same problem, the only difference is my SQL server is remote. Exactly the same problem though.

    I just found this blog post that seems to point to a reinstall:

  • After doing this procedure, i cannot manage my VMM server remotely from my computer with the SCVMM admin console, any clue?
