  17. 17. © 2013 Edgile, Inc. – All Rights Reserved 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.

  18. 18. © 2013 Edgile, Inc. – All Rights Reserved  The AlwaysOn feature is a high-availability and disaster-recovery solution that provides an enterprise-level alternative to database mirroring.  Introduced in SQL Server 2012, AlwaysOn maximizes the availability of a set of user databases for an enterprise. An availability group supports a failover environment for a discrete set of user databases, known as availability databases, that fail over together.  An availability group fails over at the level of an availability replica. Failovers are not caused by database issues such as a database becoming suspect due to a loss of a data file, deletion of a database, or corruption of a transaction log. Note: Requires SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition Virtual Machine Manager Database SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn
  19. 19. © 2013 Edgile, Inc. – All Rights Reserved In System Center 2012 SP1, SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn is supported in the following components:  App Controller  Operations Manager  Orchestrator  Service Manager  Virtual Machine Manager AlwaysOn is not supported in the following components:  Data Protection Manager (DPM)  Configuration Manager Virtual Machine Manager Database AlwaysOn and System Center 2012
