Install SCVMM 2012 SP1 on Windows 2012 with SQL 2012

Today a blog post on how to install SCVMM 2012 SP1 on Windows 2012 with SQL 2012

First of all the requirements for SCVMM 2012 SP1 on Windows server 2012
See for more information.

– Domain account for SCVMM with local administrator rights on the SCVMM Server
– SQL Admin account to create the SCVMM Database

1. On the SCVMM Server – Install the WADK (Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit)

2. Optional – On the AD Server –
By default, VMM encrypts some data in the VMM database (for example Run As account credentials and passwords in guest operating system profiles) by using the Windows Data Protection API (DPAPI). The encryption of this data is tied to the specific computer on which VMM is installed and the service account used by VMM. Therefore, if you need to move your VMM installation to another computer, the encrypted data will not be retained.
Distributed key management, however, stores the encryption keys in AD DS. Therefore, if you need to move your VMM installation to another computer, the encrypted data will be retained, because the other computer will have access to the encryption keys in AD DS.
