Sometimes importing VHDX/files into Library server or scanning the Library server share files fails with “Unable to import xxxx. xxxx files can only be imported by library servers running Windows server 2012 or later” Error log looks like below in the SCVMM Jobs.

This issue happens when VMM Library server information in VMM Database is improper.

Run below sql query against VMM Database to see the Library server OS information.

SELECT * FROM [dbo].[tbl_ADHC_Library]

If above query displays concerned VMM Library server OperatingSystemVersion as “0.0.0.0” then the information is corrupt and this needs to be fixed. Below query displays ”0.0.0.0” info for hyd-sql-01 vmm library, so this must be updated to fix the library issue.

SQL Query

Next, update the table ADHC_Library with appropriate Operating System version of your Windows server. You can get the OS version of the server using below command in cmd prompt.

systeminfo | findstr OS

For example, my server is 2012 R2, so I have updated table with “6.3.9200” as below. This will fix the library import issues.

 

Run below sql query against ADHC_Library table of VMM database to update the OS version

update tbl_ADHC_Library set OperatingSystemVersion = '6.3.9200' where OperatingSystemVersion like '0.0.0.0'

Update SQL Table

This should now help fix the import issues. VHDX/files can now been seen in library shares we’ve configured.

When attempting to install System Center Virtual Machine Manger 2012/R2, you might get installation failure due to Webdeploy.msi failed with Windows Installer 1603 error code as below:

 

Looking at the logs, you can see webdeploy is failing to install on the system. The reason it reports is that 3.5 already exist if you take a closer look at the logs. Take a look at the logs snippet below:

As highlighted above, it reports A newer version of Web Deploy was found on this machine. To resolve the installation issue, you must navigate to Programs and Features and uninstall the Web Deploy from there. Once this is uninstalled, you can retry the SCVMM installation and it must pass the web deploy issue now.

The reason why a newer version exists can be related to either SCVMM 2016 has been previously attempted to install on this system, or part of web deploy components have been installed for other application requirements.

 


In Windows 8 / 10 versions, launching the File explorer places you in Quick access window instead of legacy “My Computer/This PC”. This post will help you to configure the File explorer to open up “This PC” instead of quick access, so your requirement is fulfilled.
