By default, the DEM Worker configuration file uses the default installation path of Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) console. You must update the file if you install the SCVMM console to a non-default location.

About this task

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

Prerequisites

  • Know the non-default path where you installed the SCVMM console.

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

    path="{ProgramFiles}\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"

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="D:\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="Microsoft.SystemCenter.VirtualMachineManager" path="D:\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="Remoting" path="D:\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="TraceWrapper" path="D:\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\bin"/>
       <add name="Utils" path="D:\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.
