Installing SCVMM on a host with a name containing "-SCVMM-" fails with Error 257


 


Well, the title says it all. If the host you’re trying to install SCVMM on has a name that contains “-SCVMM-” in upper case letters, setup fails with Error 257.


Example: MUC-SCVMM-1


Resolution: Use a slightly different name, like “MUC-SCVMMR2-1” or “MUC-SCVmm-1”,


The reason is that the uppercase string “-SCVMM-” is used internally for host cummincation by SCVMM.
