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.
