VMM – One Liner to dismiss failed state

A colleague asked me today about a one line command to remove the ‘failed’ state of all VMs, I thought I’d share this in case anyone else has had this problem:

(remember to run from VMM powershell)

Get-SCVirtualMachine | Repair-SCVirtualMachine -Dismiss

VMM Version Numbers

To identify the version of VMM you are running find the about information as per the screenshot below:

vmm

This will pull up version information including Service Pack and Version number:

vmm2

The Version number can be converted to a KB article (Update Rollup) by using this site: List of Build Numbers for System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)
