Hyper-V R2: Changes to the Virtual Machine Settings UI

Hyper-V R2: Changes to the Virtual Machine Settings UI

  • Comments 2

One piece of feedback we received for Hyper-V is that people wanted an easier way to look at the settings for a number of virtual machines, without needing to keep on closing and reopening the virtual machine settings UI.  To help with this we have added a new toolbar to the virtual machine settings UI:

Settings-1

You can use this to move from the settings of one virtual machine to another by either selecting the new virtual machine from the drop-down, or by using the forward and back arrows to move through virtual machines.  If you open the settings dialog for a single snapshot on a virtual machine you can use this to move back and forward between the snapshots for the virtual machine in question.

Cheers,

  • Great.

    But a still-greater addition would be adding columns to Virtual Machines main list. For example, I have limited RAM, and want to know how much RAM each running machine is using, and the total too. Network connectivity (which is connected and which is not) is also something I'd be happy to have there.

  • Jonathan -

    Yes, we have spent a fair amount of time looking into how to expose more information through the Hyper-V Management console - but unfortunately no changes will be made there for R2.

    Cheers,
