TechNet Webcast: Using Virtual Machine Manager and Windows PowerShell to Deploy HP Windows Server 2008 Academy Labs (Level 300)

We have deployed 660 virtual machines for the student labs that are a key part of the week-long Academy. Provisioning and lab setup was administered using Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2007 and Window PowerShell. This fast-paced webcast summarizes the IT professional experience of using a Windows PowerShell script and Virtual Machine Manager to automate the deployment of virtual machines (VMs). We review the HP academy, introduce Virtual Machine Manager and its features, walk though how the VMs were deployed via the scripted process, and discuss the benefits of using Virtual Machine Manager and Windows PowerShell to manage the VMs once they have been deployed. We also give you tips for using the Virtual Machine Manager Windows PowerShell cmdlets! Attend this presentation to gain the confidence to start automating the administrating virtual environments using Virtual Machine Manager and Windows PowerShell.
