SCVMM doesn’t add Hyper-V host

November 1, 2011

When adding Hyper-V host to Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager I ran into error from Refresh host job:

Error (2912)
An internal error has occurred trying to contact an agent on the host.corp.contoso.com server.
(The remote procedure call failed (0x800706BE))

Recommended Action
Ensure the agent is installed and running. Ensure the WS-Management service is installed and running, then restart the agent

I was able to see host under Hosts panel but couldn’t see VMs. Firstly I thought that running SCVMM along with Hyper-V on the same server even for testing purposes is not a supported scenario. But it turns out it’s a bug. Solution is to install SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 in my case.
