Upgrade VMM 2012 R2 to CU6 and Configure an Azure Subscription

I was asked recently to upgrade our VMM to the latest CU6 rollup,

This is the process I followed:

Upgrade VMM to CU6:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3050317

(If installing manually make sure you install the server update before the console update)

(if you use an App controller server you may need to install the CU6 Console on that too)

 

 

Azure Subscription,

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/mt125377.aspx

Create the certificate in Visual studio command prompt (Make sure run as admin)

 

makecert -sky exchange -r -n “CN=<CertificateName>” -pe -a sha1 -len 2048 -ss My “<CertificateName>.cer”

This will add a cert to your personal certificate store, you need to export this as a crv

Then go to your Azure portal > Settings > Management Certificates

Upload your exported cert

Import the certificate to your VMM server

Open the VMM console, in the VM’s and services tab there should be Azure Subscriptions. In the home tab select add Subscription.

In the Display name put whatever you think will be recognisable

Enter the subscription ID (you can find this on the Management Certificates tab in Azure Settings)

Click browse on the certificate and you should be prompted to select the one you imported.

Select finish (you may be prompted to allow the application access to the certificate, select allow)

Your Azure VM’s will now appear in VMM

Note. Once you configure the subscription in VMM it will appear for all users.

 

Thank you
