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. One of the traits that they describe as being necessary …

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. Since its release in Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V supports cloning of Domain Controller VMs. Cloning may seem an incredibly naughty task for a domain controller! 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. Microsoft touts Routing and Remote Access but there is no way I will go there. First it’s a total pain to setup and run. 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. I am not sure how it is implemented but if there is a pay-wall…

Workaround for Updating a Hyper-V Generation 2 VM with KB2920189

During my last updating round, I noticed that a number of VMs in my Windows Azure Pack lab, had problems with security update KB2920189. Reading the Microsoft Security Advisory, it states that Microsoft is revoking the digital signature for four private, third-party UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) modules that could be loaded during UEFI Secure Boot. These UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) modules are partner modules distributed in backup and recovery software. When the update is applied, the affected UEFI modules will no longer be trusted and will no longer load on systems where UEFI Secure Boot is enabled. The affected UEFI modules consist of specific Microsoft-signed modules that are not in compliance with our certification program and are being revoked at the request of …
