SCVMM and Domain Controllers ‘real world questions and answers’

“We often hear questions either on internal alias or from customers about SCVMM and Domain Controllers so here’re a few common scenarios, questions and real world answers: Scenario #1: VMM server is in Domain_A and there’s a member server that’s in a workgroup that you want to add as a managed host. Will this work? Answer: Yes. Add member server through Add Host wizard using option for ‘perimeter network’ and SCVMM can manage this host,” writes Microsoft. VMM and Domain Controllers – RULES AND GUIDELINES: » A server that’s a member of a workgroup can be added as a managed host » That server can then be joined to any domain and VMM will still function normally »That server can even be promoted to a domain controller and VMM will still function normally (exception is RODC) » You cann’t promote VMM server to a domain controller without first uninstalling VMM and then reinstalling after promotion. Note: It’s NOT RECOMMENDED to install VMM on a domain controller. Computers functioning as domain controllers should be reserved for domain administrative functions.
