Manually Deploy SCVVM Agent

The System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) agent allows a SCVMM server to manage the virtual machines on that host. When you use the SCVMM console to add a host, the SCVMM agent software is installed on that host. If the host is in a perimeter network or not on the domain, you need to add the agent software manually before joining it to a VMM server.

Before you install the SCVMM agent, your host must meet the following requirements. (List below provided by Microsoft)

· Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 or above.

· Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 x64 SP1 or above.

If you are using Windows Server 2008, you are good to go. These instructions are valid for installing SC VMM agent on a host in a trusted domain.

Double click Setup.exe from the installation media of SCVMM

Click Local Agent.

Click Next.

Check I accept the terms of this agreement and click Next.

Choose the location of where you want the agent to install to and click Next.

On the Configuration Settings page, you must configure the agent to use the same ports as the SC VMM server. Click Next.

If this host is on a perimeter network, you need to configure the authentication between the host and the VMM server. You can do this via a security file or a certificate. Click Next.

Click Install.
