Copying from Virtual Machine Manager FAQs

Can I add the VMM server as a host?
Yes. In VMM, you can add the VMM server as a host. If you use the VMM server as a host, you should take the cumulative performance requirements of all components—including the VMM service—into account when deploying virtual machines on the server.

You can also run Virtual Machine Manager inside a virtual machine.


You can have SCVMM on a VM but you should be careful with the placement of the VM. As a good practice never place the SCVMM's VM on a host you are to manage with the VMM itself. If something happens to the Host leaving the VMM's VM unreachable/unmanagable, you will lose the management of other hosts (and their VMs) managed by the same VMM server.

Hope that made sense

Shahid
