System Center Virtual Machine Manager docs

Hello guys,

Here are some nice documents about System Center Virtual Machine Manager. If you want to use them be my guest.

VMM Ports and Protocols

When you install the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) server, you can assign some of the ports that it will use for communications and file transfers between the VMM components. While it is a best security practice to change the default ports, not all of the ports can be changed through VMM. The default settings for the ports are listed in the following table.  Continue reading “VMM Ports and Protocols”

Required Rights and Permissions for VMM Administrative Tasks

The following table is a reference to the rights and permissions, both within and outside System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), that are required to perform common administrative tasks. Within VMM, role-based security determines the VMM operations that a person can perform and the objects on which the operations can be performed. For more information, see Role-Based Security in VMM.

Role-Based Security in SCVMM

Beginning with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008, VMM implements role-based security to provide finer control over who can do what within the virtualized environment. This security model supports delegated administration, which was not available in VMM 2007. Self-service user roles replace the self-service policies that were used to administer virtual machine self-service in VMM 2007.

Dynamic Memory vs Memory Overcommit

De laatste tijd kom ik steeds vaker op internet posts tegen van mensen die denken
dat Memory Overcommit en Dynamic Memory hetzelfde doen, of zelfs hetzelfde zijn.
Dit is NIET zo! Deze post is bedoeld om dit te verduidelijken.

Time Synchronization in Hyper-V

There is a lot of confusion about how time synchronization works in Hyper-V – so I wanted to take the time to sit down and write up all the details. 

There are actually multiple problems that exist around keeping time inside of virtual machines – and Hyper-V tackles these problems in different ways.

Problem #1 – Running virtual machines lose track of time. Continue reading “Time Synchronization in Hyper-V”
