By default, the DEM Worker configuration file uses the default installation path of Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2012 console. You must update the configuration when the SCVMM console is installed to another location.

Before you begin

  • Know the actual path where the SCVMM console is installed.

    The following is the default 2012 path that you must replace in the configuration file.

    path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"

About this task

This release supports the SCVMM 2012 R2 console, so you must update the path to 2012 R2. You also might need to update the path if you installed the SCVMM console to a non-default path.

You only need this procedure if you have SCVMM endpoints and agents.

Procedure

  1. Stop the DEM Worker service.
  2. Open the following file in a text editor.

    Program Files (x86)\VMware\vCAC\Distributed Execution Manager\instance-name\DynamicOps.DEM.exe.config

  3. Locate the <assemblyLoadConfiguration> section.
  4. Update each path, using the following example as a guideline.
    <assemblyLoadConfiguration>
      <assemblies>
       <!-- List of required assemblies for Scvmm -->
       <add name="Errors" path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="Microsoft.SystemCenter.VirtualMachineManager" path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="Remoting" path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="TraceWrapper" path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="Utils" path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
      </assemblies>
    </assemblyLoadConfiguration>
    
  5. Save and close DynamicOps.DEM.exe.config.
  6. Restart the DEM Worker service.
