Hyper-V host blue screens (BSOD) after being added to SCVMM

February 26, 2018 Leave a comment

Description

When rebooting a Hyper-V host running on VMware Workstation after adding it to System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), the host will not boot & blue screens (BSOD).

Cause

When a Hyper-V host is added to SCVMM, several hardware IDs are added to the Multi path I/O (MPIO) list. One of these hardware IDs are not compatible on VMware Workstation.

Information
To see a list of hardware IDs added by SCVMM run:

Get-MSDSMSupportedHW

It’s worth noting that when the MPIO role is installed, the only ID in the list is a generic entry for Vendor 8 Product 16.

Solution

Boot the Hyper-V host to the last known good configuration. Once it’s back up, add the Hyper-V host to SCVMM again. Before rebooting, remove the MPIO entry for MSFT2011SASBusType_0xA by running the following PowerShell command:

Remove-MSDSMSupportedHW -VendorId "MSFT2011" -ProductId "SASBusType_0xA"

Now reboot the Hyper-V host.

Description

When uninstalling CA iTechnology iGateway you receive an error that says, “The iGateway can not uninstall because the following components are still using the iGateway: Spindles defined in Spin.conf. Please remove the above components before uninstalling the iGateway again.”

Solution

Browse to C:\Program Files\CA\SharedComponents\iTechnology & open spin.conf in Notepad.

Remove the line that says:
<Spindle Prefix=”/ITMClient” Directory=”” Spar=”ITMClient.spar” Description=”ITMClient” Version=”8.1″ Config=””>ITMClient</Spindle>
Save the file then try to uninstall again.
