Virtual Machine Manager

  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) looks pretty cool especially as it can do lots of things "on the fly" and convert VMWare images to VMM issues - this might convince me to try Virtual Server/ Virtual PC again as at the moment my preference is VMWare.
  • Demo of integration with SCOM – SCOM reported a problem with a server having network problem.  A wizard was run to take the SCOM recommendation of moving the VM to another host to resolve the issue which it did on the fly and seamlessly.
