Hyper-V Program Manager
This is just a little tip - but I thought it was worth sharing. If you ever find yourself wanting to start or stop Virtual Server from the command prompt under Windows, you will need to run the following command:
net stop "Virtual Server"
net start "Virtual Server"
net stop "Virtual Server
Hehe. I've been doing that for quite some time now :)
Guess I'm one of those too lazy to type the extra quote.
How about sc start "Virtual Server" instead? Less characters and you don't have to wait for it to return. sc is the preferred way to interact with services.
sasv 'Virtual Server'
(PowerShell), even shorter ("sasv" is alias for "Start-Service", as "spsv" is for "Stop-Service").
That's just plain lazy ;)
Dropping the last quote works for many programs. It's a side-effect of the way the C run-time parses the command-line into the array that's passed as the second argument to main().
Is there an equivalent service name for Virtual PC?
Virtual PC runs as a normal process (virtualpc.exe), not a service.
