SCVMM PRO Tips & SCOM 2007 R2 CU3

7:06 am in Uncategorized by Kurt Roggen

Be careful when implementing SCVMM PRO Tips with SCOM 2007 R2 CU3.  Cumulative Update 3 will break the PRO Tips with Event ID 26319 appearing.
You should implement SCOM 2007 R2 CU4 to solve PRO related issues.

Also interesting to know is that CU4 adds SQL 2008 R2 upgrade support for SCOM 2007 R2.

SCVMM 2008 R2 SP1 Available Now!

8:19 am in Uncategorized by Kurt Roggen

On behalf of the SCVMM product team and I am proud to announce the availability of SCVMM 2008 R2 SP1 RTM. 

Support for new features of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

  • Dynamic Memory: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V supports Dynamic Memory enabling customers to better utilize the memory resources of a Hyper-V host. VMM 2008 R2 SP1 allows administrators to create and deploy Virtual Machines onto Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V hosts and will report on the memory currently in use for these VMs where Dynamic Memory is enabled. Using Dynamic Memory for supported VMs allows for more efficient utilization of memory, with consistent performance, and higher consolidation ratios.

  • Microsoft RemoteFX: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 introduces a new set of end user experience enhancements with Microsoft RemoteFX. VMM 2008 R2 SP1 allows administrators to create and deploy Virtual Machines with RemoteFX enabled to qualified Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Hyper-V hosts. This enables a rich, local-like desktop environment over the network.
