Resource Metering in Hyper-V

In this blog post I will show you how you can measure the usage of host resources by Hyper-V virtual machines. This is yet another feature that was introduced in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V that isn’t immediately obvious and is driven by using Windows PowerShell. So why should you use resource metering in Hyper-V? Read on to see why this feature is so important. Why is Hyper-V Resource Metering Important? The American National Institute of Standards and Technology gives us one of the best definitions of a cloud in their Special Publication 800-145, entitled “The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing.” In this document they describe a cloud as having five essential characteristics.

Hyper-V and the Cloneable Domain Controller

In-Depth Hyper-V and the Cloneable Domain Controller Is the new feature an IT game changer or an unnecessary headache? By Rick Vanover 09/19/2014 Sounds funny, but believe it or not, it’s real.

In fact, I grew up with my Active Directory practice of preferring to address all situations through dcpromo. This includes removing a failed domain controller, moving roles around and transferring to new hardware or a new virtual machine. Windows Server 2012 has a new option that you may want to consider with Hyper-V … Or should you stick to how you’ve been doing Active Directory? Domain controller cloning in Windows …

Run a Router on Hyper-V – Naked ALM

I want to run a router on Hyper-V so that I can run many VM’s, each with internet access, on corporate and hotel networks.

Second I need to run a whole Windows Server just to have basic DHCP and internet access. Overkill much! There must be a better way. The problem is that on most networks that I connect to there is some sort of one-MAC-one-IP rule. I am often onsite at companies on their Guest Wi-Fi and in hotel’s.

Default Hyper-V Storage Paths Explained

by Aidan Finn – May 6, 2014

In my travels, I have noticed that the default storage paths used by Hyper-V can cause some confusion. To be honest, I don’t like how Hyper-V stores virtual machines by default; System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) handles the folder structure in a much more attractive fashion. In this post, I will explain where Hyper-V stores virtual machine files by default, and how you can manipulate those settings to get a better configuration. Hyper-V Storage Path Settings There are two default storage paths defined in each host’s Hyper-V settings. You can find and edit these paths by opening Hyper-V Manager, connecting to and selecting your host, and choosing Hyper-V Settings from Actions. Here you …
