System Center Virtual Machine Manager Beta 2 Released (SCVMM) April 25, 2007

Posted by Björn Axéll in SCVMM.

Today Microsoft released the updated beta version of Virtual Machine Manager (beta 2). As they promised, there is a lot of new functionality, here is some of the new features:


  • Completely new, easy-to-use and intuitive UI based on the System Center look-and-feel (same as System Center Operations Manager 2007, Service Desk and System Center Essentials)
  • Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Conversions (Windows Server® 2000 or Windows Server 2003 are supported)
  • Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) Conversions – Using the Windows PowerShell® interface, converts a VMWare disk or a whole VM to the analogous VS vhd\vm representation
  • 64-bit VMM server support
  • Every VMM component is now remotely installable, including the VMM server, library server, delegated provisioning portal, administrative console and data store
  • Full Windows PowerShell support with documentation – automate away!
  • Better overall performance and scalability


You can download the SCVMM Beta 2 from Microsoft Connect
