Spun up a test SCOM 2012 SP1 and Veeam Management Pack for VMware implementation recently. One of our goals is to provide a more holistic view (i.e. tie guest monitoring to VMware monitoring).
The documentation mentions that this functionality has a few requirements, including 'The Display Name of the virtual machine (in vCenter) must match either the NETBIOS name or the FQDN of the virtualized OS.' Is there any workaround for this? The first word of all our virtual machines is always the hostname / NETBIOS name, but we also add a space and a description of the VM, for example:
VM1133 OpsMgr MS2
VM1134 OpsMgr 2012 nworks Collector
Has anyone had any success working around this requirement? For the few VMs that are only the NETBIOS name, I get the desired results (one object with both Windows and VM info). For everything else, I get two objects, one with the full vCenter display name only showing VM info, the other with the NETBIOS name showing Windows health.
Your insight would be greatly appreciated!
