SCVMM console takes forever to open : Fixed

I had a problem when launching the SCVMM console, I would get the log in prompt fast enough but it would then just sit there for about 5 minutes before it would actually open up.  From that point on everything worked perfectly fine again.

Turn out the problem was because the SCOM ( System Center Operations Manager) server had gone offline.

You can confirm that this is the same problem by looking at Settings | System Centre Settings | Operations Manager Server



If you attempt to make a change to any of these settings it will again bog down for a few minutes not doing anything. but then it will give you the solution.


Run the following from PowerShell as an admin

Remove-SCOpsMgrConnection -force

The defunct SCOM server is removed and then you are free to add a new one in again.
