The credentials supplied to the package were not recognized (SCVMM 2012 SP1)

I finally got around to setting up SCVMM 2012 SP1 CTP2 in my test lab today.  One of the first things I tried to do, after getting everything setup, was to do a shared-nothing live migration.  However this failed with the following error message:


After a bit of investigation I discovered that this was because I had not configured “Run As” accounts for my hosts.

What I needed to do was:

  • Find the source host (zeta in this case) in SCVMM
  • Open Properties
  • Go to the Host Access page
  • Configure a Run As account:

Once I had done this I was able to migrate virtual machines without any problems.
