Virtual Machine Manager 2008, 2008 R2, and 2008 R2 SP1 Configuration Analyzer (VMMCA) is a diagnostic tool that you can use to evaluate important configuration settings for computers that either are serving or might serve VMM roles or other VMM functions.

The VMMCA scans the hardware and software configurations of the computers you specify, evaluates them against a set of predefined rules, and then provides you with error messages and warnings for any configurations that're not optimal for the VMM role or other VMM function that you've specified for the computer.

Note: VMMCA doesn't duplicate or replace the prerequisite checks performed during the setup of VMM 2008, VMM 2008 R2, or 2008 R2 SP1 components.

Before installing VMM, you can use the VMMCA to help you evaluate the configuration of computers that you might use for following VMM roles:

  • VMM server
  • VMM Administrator Console
  • VMM Self-Service Portal

After installing VMM, you can use VMMCA to evaluate the configurations of computers that you're now using or might use for the VMM roles listed above, as well as computers that you are using or might use for any of the following VMM functions:

  • Windows Server-based host
  • VMware Virtual Center Server
  • P2V source computer
  • Operations Manager agent
