SCVMM (Error 2910) : VMM does not have appropriate permissions to access the resources : Host needs attention

 
If you get this error in SCVMM and your hosts are managed on the perimeter network, this is caused due the Host on a Perimeter Network that was previously able to communicate with the System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 server no longer can.
 
A manual refresh of the host will result in a job failure as shown here:
 
 
 
 

The password used by the VMMAgent Service Account has expired, or the Service Account itself has been disabled or deleted. This may more frequently in a workgroup environment where password expiration default is set to 48 days.

Check if the policy ‘User must change password at next logon’ is enforced there will be an initial successful connection between the Perimeter Host and the VMM Server, followed by subsequent communication failure

 
Quick fix:
 
  1. On the Perimeter Host server, right-click My Computer and the click Manage.
  2. Open Local Users and Groups, and then open Users.
  3. In the right-hand pane, locate the service account for VMMAgent that begins with ‘SCVMM*****’.
  4. Right-click the service account and then select Properties.
  5. Click to clear the User must change password at next logon check box.

       6. Click to select the Password never expires check box.

     7. Click OK to close the ‘SCVMM***** Properties’ window.

     8. Refresh the Perimeter Host in the SCVMM Admin console again.
