Create, Configure and Manage VMs within Corefig

Dec 31, 2012 at 8:23 AM

Thanks for the hardwork porting this tools to HyperV Server 2012. This comes handy on many occasions. Almost all functions went well, except when adding server role, it freezes.

If I may, would it be better if creating, configuration and managing VMs' be integrated within Corefig? Although, Coreconfig miss this, it will make Corefig more useful if integrated.

I know nothing about code, however, I do believe it is possible. Been using PShell command from TechNet and was able to creat, configure and manage VMs' albiet, unsuccessfully. I don't know. My VM was created, configure and started successfully, but there is no GUI to interact in OS's setup process. 

I try to export VM from HyperV 2008 R2, failed. Use Win8Ent on VBox and create VM's in HyperV Server 2012 remotely, just like HyperV 2008 R2, success, but troublesome. (newbie here, :D)

 

Thanks.

I will look into the issue about adding server roles.

As for the rest, I'll put it on the wish list as a possibility. You're right that there are PowerShell commands to create, update, export/import etc on VMs. They wouldn't be terribly difficult to code in, but designing a decent interface for them is hard. I know that Microsoft's preferred method with VMs on Hyper-V is remote management, not console management, and I tend to agree with them.
