Diagnostic tool for SCVMM 2008 and SCVMM 2008 R2

I'm recommending that you download and run System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and 2008 R2 Configuration Analyzer before you install SCVMM Server, VMM Administrator Console and VMM Self Service Portal .

Get the analyzer from :-

Before you run the VMCA, you must download the pre-requisite:- 64-bit version of Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer (MBCA)

The system will come out with a pop up error message if you did not install MBCA.

Run the tools and enter the server name.

The Analyzer will perform diagnostic and provide a report. It is recommended to fix all the error (Indicated in red color) before install SCVMM.

Re-run the diagnostic once you fix the red error. You can ignore the warning error (Indicated in yellow color about insufficient memory) .

Once the diagnostic is complete, you can start the SCVMM installation.
