How to Handle NTFS Folder Permissions, Security Descriptors and ACLs in PowerShell

1. Overview Some time ago, I was automating a few tasks with PowerShell and needed to set NTFS permissions on a folder. I was tempted to use the good old ICACLS.EXE command line, but I wanted to keep it all within PowerShell. While there are a number of different permissions you could want to set for a folder, my specific case called the following: -          Create a new folder -          Check the default permissions on the new folder - ...

Configuring Remote Management of Hyper-V Server - in a workgroup

I have received a number of questions about how to go about setting up remote management of our free Hyper-V server (not the one that is part of Windows).  So I thought I would sit down and write up a set of blog posts to talk about how to do this.  Today I am going to talk about how to remotely manage a Hyper-V server from a Windows 7 desktop when in a workgroup environment. I am going to assume that you have already installed Hyper-V server and have configured the server name, workgroup name and networking appropriately... [Lire la suite]

Hyper-V Dynamic Memory test for VDI density

Hi, I’m Michael Kleef, senior technical product manager within the Windows Server and Cloud division. As Brad Anderson and I discussed at the TechEd Europe keynote today, Dynamic Memory, a new feature in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, can increase Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) densities by 40% compared to Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 R2 and also well above a leading industry solution. It’s also not just a benefit to VDI. Our Technology Adoption Program (TAP) customer data also highlights that other server workloads benefit... [Lire la suite]

Moving a Virtual Machine Between Hyper-V Hosts

A virtual machine (or VM) is an entity that is stored on one virtualization host, and that runs an instance of an operating system and uses resources that are presented to it by the virtualization software on that host. In Hyper-V, a VM uses a set of configuration files, and one or more virtual disks (in the format of VHD files). There may come a time when there is a need to move a VM or more between virtualization hosts. I will not go into a debate of why this needs to be done, however, I will just mention that the most common... [Lire la suite]

Updates to Dynamic Memory UI in SP1 RC

In the release candidate build of service pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 we have updated some parts of the Dynamic Memory user interface. There were some top-level goals that we had with the Dynamic Memory user interface in the Hyper-V Manager (our MMC interface).  Specifically we wanted users to be able to: Quickly see if their Hyper-V server was “in a good state” Quickly identify if specific virtual machines did not have enough memory Know how much memory was being used by each virtual machine Know how far...

Enabling Dynamic Memory on Windows Server Standard and Web Editions

With the release candidate build of service pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 you can now enabled Dynamic Memory on the standard and web editions of Windows Server.  However – there is a slightly different process to do this on the various versions of Windows server: Windows Server 2003 / Windows Server 2003 R2 All you need to do for these operating systems is to update the integration services.
