Now I need to register the SPN

Here how to;


The Service Principal Name (SPN) could not be registered in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) for the VMM management server.
1) Use setspn.exe to create SPN for vmmserver using following command "C:\Windows\system32\setspn.exe  -S SCVMM/VMM01.ndic.com NDIC\svcvmm".
2) Add SPN values to following registry key "Software\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server\Setup\VmmServicePrincipalNames".
3) Run "C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\Virtual Machine Manager\setup\ConfigureSCPTool.exe -install" to configure SCP.

If SPN and SCP are not registered, VMM consoles on other computers will not be able to connect to this VMM management server and deploying a Hyper-V host to a bare-metal computer will not work.



Configure SCVMM

Open the VMM Console



Now go to Settings and then click General


Open Network Setting s and select Create Logical networks automatically


Open the User Roles  double click on Administrator and check the members make sure the service account is listed and Domain Admins



Ok and Close
