If you face VMM connection or collection issues,

  • Execute SCVMHostGroup, Get-SCVMHostCluster, Get-SCVMHost, Get-SCVirtualMachine cmdlets. 


PowerShell APIs are used to connect and collect the data remotely from VMM server. Data is collected using cmdlets. For example, Get-SCVMHostGroup, Get-SCVMHostCluster, Get-SCVMHost, Get-SCVirtualMachine etc.). The PowerShell APIs internally uses WinRM.

  • Right click VMM Server > KM commands > Debug > On/Off .
  • Start the debug.
  • Go to patrolhome/scv/log directory and send the latest log report file to BMC Customer Support.

 For more information, see Agent configuration variables.
