Hyper-V Program Manager
As mentioned here - VMRCplus is a free tool that allows you to use Virtual Server without having the web interface installed - and it is now available for download.
Now to add a bit of background for those of you wondering where the heck this tool came from - and why it is being released now.
VMRCplus was originally developed by on of our testers, Paul Despe. He originally developed solely for his own uses - but he made it available internally for people to use. Well -as happens - from time to time someone outside of Microsoft would see someone using this tool and go "Wow - can I get that?". The problem was that the tool wasn't really "end user ready" and Paul shifted onto testing Windows Server virtualization a while ago - so could not justify the work needed to bring it up to the necessary quality.
Thankfully, Matthijs ten Seldam, a consultant at Microsoft offered to take over the project and to do the work to get it ready for others to use - and now we are here.
Nice product, but this from the documentation is rather limiting: "VMRCplus can manage a workgroup server when installed locally on the host.
Management of remote workgroup servers however is not possible. The Virtual Server COM API does not provide a form of ‘connect as’ when connecting to a remote host."
I am glad to see this tool got released! I loved this tool when I helped support Virtual Server as a contractor at Microsoft. This also makes it a lot easier to test "alternate OS" VMs running under Virtual Server (for SCSI support) than through the webpage.
I created a blog for VMRCplus. See my URL.
I can't connect to Virtual Server with VMRCPlus
"Access is denied. (Exeption from HRESULT:0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
Sames issue as Nikola here,
is there any solution (runas or else) to connect to a workgroup hostserver, from a domain client?
Mod @ MCSEboard.de
I am also getting the error
Has anyone found a solution?
Help! Great tool but I cannot use it?
I'm having loads of problems with VMRCplus. Any time something bad happens to a server I'm monitoring VM on it throws all manner of errors. It regularly hangs as well.
I use it on several machines on a number of unconnected domains and keep seeing the same problems.
It really is a great tool but I'm afraid it doesn't have the quality I normally associate with Microsoft products.
Indeed, it is not a Microsoft product. It is a tool made by two guys at Microsoft - which has not been through the Microsoft release process.
About your Question per mail, no didn´t find a solution. But a definite answer look here:
