    import problems:

    the file I downloaded from system center central is named Virtual_Machine_Manager_Dashboards.xml
    you have to rename it to Virtual.Machine.Manager.Dashboards.xml to be able to import it.
    the MP ID in the XML is Virtual.Machine.Manager.Dashboards and OpsMgr refuses to import the file unless you rename it.

    hope this helps others

    • This took a bit of research, as it turns out the management pack was uploaded as Virtual.Machine.Manager.Dashboards.xml but renamed on the System Center Central side. It is now encapsulated (with the correct name) in a zip file at the SCC link. The zip file has underscores in the name because that’s apparently what System Center Central will do, but the xml file within the zip file is named correctly.

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

    I get an error when importing this MP that Microsoft.SystemCenter.VirtualMachineManager.Library & Microsoft.SystemCenter.VirtualMachineManager.2012.Discovery are missing. Where can I get these? I have searched everywhere and can’t find these. Help is appreciated.

    • The VMM dashboard management pack will not import unless the VMM management packs are previously installed in the management group. Unlike other management packs, these are pushed from the Virtual Machine Manager environment by configuring integration from VMM into Operations Manager.
      When these are successfully integrated from VMM, the underlying VMM management packs are authomatically imported; these should be the missing management packs you referenced.

    Some of the views are not showing the information. for example, CPU counts, memory and disk information.
    Please suggest the solution.
