SIM 6.2 can't see Windows 2008 server core as a Hyper-V host

I just installed SIM 6.2 and it doesn't seem to be able to identify my 2008 server core as a Hyper-V host and all the VMs are showing as unknown. I've installed WBEM on the server core. Am I missing something here to get it properly see the host and VMs? Thanks.

Re: SIM 6.2 can't see Windows 2008 server core as a Hyper-V host

Here's some more information when I try to discover the host (I provided domain admin credential for WBEM):

The Central Management System (CMS) cannot communicate with the
CIMOM locally installed on the managed system using the WBEM
protocol, Identification will try to identify Windows systems using
the WMI Mapper as proxy; for Linux and HP-UX systems, check
credentials by going to Options->Security->Credentials->System
Credentials. For Linux systems also check if the HP WBEM provider
is installed.


Minor: Identification cannot get computer system hardware data from the
WBEM / WMI providers.
* Running Virtual Machine (VM) Host (non HP Integrity VM Host)
Identification...
Normal: The system is not a VM Host (non HP Integrity VM Host), or WBEM
credentials may not be specified so skipping VM Identification.
* Running WS-Man identification...

Make sure the account being used to access the system is a member of the 'Distributed COM users' group locally or on the domain.

Re: SIM 6.2 can't see Windows 2008 server core as a Hyper-V host

I fixed the problem myself by restarting the SIM server and deleting then re-discovering the hosts. But now I'm having new problems:
1. All the virtual machine guests don't have any IP showing in the SIM. They just show as associated with the host but no information about the IP, OS, etc.

2. In SIM server's event viewer I keep getting event id 3072:
Component: Software Version Agent
Error: Could not read from the registry sub-key.
Cause: This error can be caused by a corrupt registry or a low memory condition. Rebooting the server may correct this error.
