Join PowerShell expert Jeff Hicks as he demon how to manage just about everything in Hyper-V from creating new virtual machines, to managing snapshots to health reporting.
It seems you can't walk across the datacenter without tripping over some piece of virtualization software. If you run a Windows shop, more than likely that software is Microsoft Hyper-V. Even better, Windows 8 can run Hyper-V directly, giving you an instant test environment. But it doesn't matter if you need to manage a desktop Hyper-V setup or a set of corporate servers. You can do it all from your desk with Windows PowerShell.
This session, led by PowerShell expert Jeff Hicks, will have plenty of live demonstrations showing how to manage just about everything in Hyper-V from creating new virtual machines, to managing snapshots to health reporting. If your laptop has Windows 8 or later with Hyper-V you are welcome to follow along but this is not a hands-on lab.
You will learn:
- How to manage Hyper-V virtual machines from the PowerShell prompt
- How to create a new virtual machine
- How to build Hyper-V management reports
