Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
For those of you running Microsoft Virtual Server, we have a new treat in store for you. Originally developed by Paul Despe then enhanced by Matthijs ten Seldam, VMRCPlus is a new VM client display and management tool. This tool will be available shortly on the Microsoft download center, TechNet online download centers, and in the companion disk of a new book written by Robert Larson & Janique Carbone. As with most if not all of our resource kit type tools, there is no support for the tool. However, here's a list of the goodies in the tool in case you are brave enough:

I have always found the standard management tools that are bundled with Virtual Server are somewhat uncomfortable
WOW - this looks very cool. I confess to mostly using VPC over MSVS - really for only one feature:
I frequently need to capture the active window for documentation - and you cant do it from the VS console, VMRC, or even Terminal Client. You can from the VPC desktop.
If that is in VMRCplus ... I may have to switch to MSVS full time!!! Nice work Matthijs.
During the last month, due to some testing we had to carry out with a software project, I needed to work...
As mentioned here - VMRCplus is a free tool that allows you to use Virtual Server without having the
Authentication is a significant issue.
I do not normally log into my local workstation as a domain administrator. As a result (it appears), I get the rather generic and largely useless "does not exist/unavailable/permissions" error message.
Further, using "Run As" doesn't appear to work either. I was surprised at that. And RDP is not a great alternative.
This, to me, is the single biggest issue with VMRC+. And it's a shame, because we could sure use it.
