  • SCVMM 2008 R2 sucked hard, so hard to the point that I use it only for the Self-Service portal. I hope this is a much better release and it fix the problems that it had with clustered Hyper-V environments (HA requirements for VMs, P2V limitations, etc.).



  • Ben have you blogged about the setup you actually use to play with this stuff. Looking to build my own test lab
