    The documented process is pretty simple. Uninstall SCVMM with Retain database option, Reinstall pointing to AlwaysOn listner and existing VMM database then done. However, when i try to do this i get this in SetupWizard.log.

    It looks like the SCVMM install process is trying to perform an ALTER statement on the database that is not supported while the database is in a mirrored state (AlwaysOn). Note that the account i’m running the setup from is a local admin on SCVMM server and I explicitly specify service account info in the wizard. Service account is an SA and has DB OWNER rights over the VMM database.

    and not sure if there is other supported methods to do this. I found some posts talking about registry hacks to change DB connection strings but not supported by MS.

    I think if you call MS support with this issue, they will quickly resort to those registry hacks that would be technically unsupported without them on the line.
