With Windows Server 2012 we get a new version of Hyper-V.
As a best practice Microsoft recommend that you install Hyper-V on Server Core. Not a problem.
PowerShell allows us to administer, configure and manage our Hyper-V install. It also allows us to script complex tasks.
Anyone that had used Exchange will know how complex these commands can be.
Well with Hyper-V in 2012 we get over 100 Cmdlets which are used for managing not only the host, but networking, storage and VMs.
I’m not going to list them all, instead here’s a link to the Hyper-V Cmdlets
Have a search through and then think about your most common tasks that you perform on a daily basis………………………………………….. Great now think how much easier your day would be if you created your own little script library to perform those tasks.
