VMM 2012 SP1 Service Stops Every Night

If you have the System Center Configuration Manager 2012 RTM agent installed on a Windows Server 2012 server also running the System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 agent, you might find the VMM service unexpectedly stops each night. There is nothing obvious in the event logs about why the service stops, but each night the hosts will move to "Not responding" in VMM because the service is not running.

This is caused by an inventory process in SCCM that causes the VMM agent to stop. You can uninstall the SCCM agent using this command:

C:\Windows\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.exe /uninstall
