asked on

adding hosts (cluster) when SCVMM is a VM

Is it possible to add the cluster on which SCVMM is running as a VM in SCVMM ?  I know it's not supported.  When the cluster is refeshing it seems to freeze because the VM is unavailable.  

Thanks

But when the host cluster is refreshing, SCVMM will freeze before being migrated by  the host.  As you know, SCVMM is managed at the failover cluster level (the other VMs are managed from SCVMM)

I've been adding the host cluster 3 times to reproduce the problem.  Each time the host where SCVMM was installed got a blue screen, rebooted itself.  SCVMM has been moved to another host but the refresh host cluster operation has not been completed.  

I could complete the operation.  But I really think SCVMM shouldn't be placed in a cluster.
