I currently have to work on VMM issues more than my Hyper-v failover cluster setup. The tool you use to manage something shouldn't be more of a hassle than the product you are managing.30 votes
SCVMM gets itself in a mess, Cluster Manager knows were the VM's are SCVMM think's it knows and you get in a situation were you can't fix it. Its so frustration...82 votes
The configuration and setup of Logical Networks and Switches are hard for administrators to learn and understand.
There is need to simplify this and also provide a graphical overview for how things are connected on a logical level. (the current build in view is not good enough).201 votes
24027 Update remediation of AgentServer <Server Name> timed out.
The Remediation task with a time-out value of 40 minutes.
When you have updates from more then a month, it will take more then 40 minutes to complete the task.
I never seen remediation task been successful, because of this and other issues with the remediation feature.
Please help to update this value or change the behavior so this error does not occur.29 votes
Request you to please connect with support team and raise the same as production ticket. Support Team can work and perform detailed investigation and identify the root cause.
That’s a major issue that there is no support for DFS-R to keep different VMM library servers in different sites in sync or up to date. If we can use DFS-R for it that would be a good step forward.169 votes
This feature is being planned, will update once we start working on this.
I like to see what performance counters on Hyper-V hosts and VMs on the following components:
These performance counters can be viewed in a graph for a day, week and month trend.
It would be nice to see what are the top hosts and VMs on CPU, memory, network and disk I/O in realtime in SCVMM without the use of SCOM75 votes
please add the ability to multiselct and do "anything" aka shutdown move and so on , having to select a vm at a time for some functions is very time consuming121 votes
Thank you for your votes and support. We have updates to the Multi select Ui in VMM 2012 R2 UR6. For more information on UR6, please go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3050317/.
This idea overall is still under review.
Add the ability to control failover and enable replica from VMM without the dependency/cost of Azure Integratio152 votes
this idea is being under review. Once we have more information, we will be updating the status.
VMM Product Team
Today we are not able to fully manage Hyper-V Hosts and Clusters from the SCVMM Console. For some settings we still need to do it from the local host. It would be great to have SCVMM to support all the Hyper-V and Cluster features in just one console.116 votes
We have reviewed the idea in great length. However, due to the large scope, we broke the top common 4 sub-idea into a separate ideas. If your idea is not being reflected as part of the 4 sub-ideas. Please subscribing your idea separately.
We do appreciate your candidate suggestions and hope you would help us further going forward.

We're discussed this but I want to say it again: it's VERY annoying to click Repair->Ignore every time...112 votes
There must be complete monitoring of Hyper-V Replication from the VMM Console, as it is in the Hyper-V Manager.
Currently VMM does not understand/recognize the replica VMs after the installation of UR5.
The VMM administrators must be able to have real-time monitoring of Hyper-V Replication and all other related tasks (Pause, Resume, Resynchronize, etc.) that are availble in the Hyper-V manager Console.
There must be a column against the Vm on the VMM Console which should be describe that a VM is Primary or Replica.71 votes
Addin functionality to add a VM to a DPM protection group on creation (Template). Make it fairly simple like the ASR integration. View protection group / DPM server in console without custom fields.
You could have a backup group for DPM servers in fabric computers, and assign them to host groups.
If a cluster or host group is protected by DPM, install the agent onto new hosts as they are added.
Fix the issue with using the DPM and VMM module at the same time maybe.67 votes
Bring back or Incorporate Virtual Machine Servicing Toolkit to VMM for Template Updating Orchestration
VMST used to provide a easy way to install patches to offline VMs and templates on a schedule. It worked well for me and saved time on template updating. Would love to see it come back in some GUI form as it was before.21 votes
Today we are able to prevent virtual machines deployments on the same Host in a cluster with availability sets, automatically.
In case of deploying VMs in two datacentre (or two Cluster) there is no such mechanism.
It would be nice if availability sets can be set up for preventing VMs are located in the same datacentre or hostgroup.4 votes
it would be useful that all the storage (iscsi, smb, fc etc) presented to a host and/or cluster and tagged with a classification to be summed and present a summary in Fabric>Storage>Classification and pools (size, available capacity, etc etc).
Now event the storage is tagged with a classification... no data is presented.6 votes
Unfortunately only one ASR subscription from one recovery vault is attachable into SCVMM. AS such, protected VMs can only be saved into a storage vault, that resides in the same datacenter as the recovery vault. In case of a global deployment, where SCVMM administrates hosts and VMs around the globe with appropriate site definitions, a failover would force users to connect to Azure VMs situated in another region as themselves. This situation also applies to the MARS agent around the globe replicating VMs to the same, single recovery/storage vault.10 votes
sometimes i need to use the console view to connect to the VMs desktop. But the console view in VMM is not as good as the viewer in FCM or Hyper-V manager.
Please make the console view the same as in the other management tools (i. e. Insert Integration Services disk, Start, Stop VM, etc.)59 votes
As Hyper-V nodes hardware is almost the same DC it will be very useful if we can control advanced network adapter configurations from VMM. As Jumbo Frames, Buffers, vRSS for Mnagement OS adapters, RSS and VMQ settings are the same in large DC for every host.
These settings could be controlled by VMM Logical Switch and Uplink Port Profiles.29 votes
Request is under review for implementation
This was top 4 common items from End-to-End Hyper-V and Cluster Management in the SCVMM Console Idea. Please provide specific details on this idea.31 votes
Today we badly miss a Comprehensive patch managemt nsolution for the datacenter. SCCM is focused on single system patching, VMM just Patches the fabric and has many shortcomings. Today we use custom Scripting Solutions that are hard to mantain.
VMM is the place where to implement the datacenter patching, we need:
- maintenance Windows
- ability to set different environments (test, pilot, poduction at least)
- ability to set relationships between systems
- great compliance reporting
- straightforward tshooting logging and tools
- ability to have pre and post custom actions
- service dependencies (40 votes
