The System Center Team is pleased to announce the Beta of the Virtual Machine Manager Self Service Portal 2.0 SP1 (VVMMSSP 2.0 SP1). This public Beta is available through Connect. The VMMSSP 2.0 SP1 Beta allows an organization to abstract physical resources and assign these services quickly and efficiently.
What’s new with VMMSSP 2.0 SP1?
Import virtual machines: Allows DCIT (Datacenter) administrators to re-import virtual machines that were removed from the self-service portal and also import virtual machines created outside the portal but managed by VMM.
Expire virtual machines: This feature provides the user the ability to set an expiration date for the virtual machines that are being created or imported so that the virtual machines auto-delete after the set date. This feature also provides users the flexibility (through role-based access) to set or change the expiration date for the virtual machine.
Notify administrators: This feature provides functionality to notify BUIT(Business Unit) or DCIT(Datacenter) administrators about various events in the system (for example, Submit request, Approve request,Expire virtual machine, and so on) via email through SQL server mail integration.
Move infrastructure between business units: This feature allows DCIT(Datacenter) administrators to move an infrastructure from one business unit to another when the system is in Maintenance Mode.
This tool is available now, and we are very interested in your feedback. Check it out.
