Another example of a really useful utility is VSPlus written by Jin Mao. VSPlus is essentially a thick client implementation of the web admin interface to Virtual Server 2005. As you may know, Virtual Server 2005 has a very comprehensive scripting capability fully documented in the programmers guide for Virtual Server which is installed in the Start menu when you install Virtual Server.
Why do I like this utility? Without having to try very hard, I found three really great reasons with functions which I hope the product group take on board in future releases:
All wasn't perfect though. There were a couple of things which I problems with. However, remember is a work in progress rather than a polished finished product. I clicked accidentally on the "Reset VM" icon on the toolbar and didn't get a "Are you sure?". Reminds me of the joke about "...if Microsoft made cars....". VSPlus also crashes a few times, but I could live with these just for the ease of saving images and duplicating VMs easily.
While this is a great utility I can not put much faith in it. The author has not worked on it for well over a year and refuses to open up the source.
Cannot download this tool.
This is the result after I click the download link and agree to disclaimmer:

Aldine - It's not a Microsoft tool, so you would need to contact the author directly. I notice there is an email link on the site. You might want to try VMRCPlus - http://www.microsoft.com/DownLoads/details.aspx?familyid=80ADC08C-BFC6-4C3A-B4F1-772F550AE791&displaylang=en
