  • Dell Latitude E6400, STOP 0x101 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V

    My work recently gave me a new Latitude E6400 (the E6500 was just a bit too heavy) which is a great machine for running virtual machines out of the office. It has an internal 7200 RPM drive, a modular drive (120GB 1.8" 5400 RPM) and I can connect an external 2.5" 7200 RPM drive via the eSata port. It also supports up to 8GB of RAM, ...

  • Home Data Centre Upgrade #3

    After adding extra disks to the home "data centre" and then getting a new backup device (Dell RD1000), today I took a punt on upgrading the RAM. When I originally bought my Dell PE SC1430 it was rated at a maximum of 8GB RAM. The latest models offer a maximum of 16GB of RAM, and after finding nothing on the interwebs that might ...

  • SCVMM 2008 Beta 1 install fails at the WAIK prerequisite step

    I was just trying to install SCVMM 2008 Beta 1 today. When installing the SCVMM 2008 Server, it failed installing the WAIK prerequisite asking me to instead install this manually. Attempting to run the WAIK msi directly from the prerequisites folder (\prerequisites\WAIK\1033) failed asking me to "Insert the WAIK setup CD". I think this ...

  • Converting from VMWare Server to Hyper-V RC0

    This Easter weekend, having a bit of downtime, I decided to convert my virtual infrastructure at home from VMWare Server to Hyper-V. The major blocking issue was a lack of RAID controller drivers from 3Ware for their 9650SE-series cards, but thanks to Justin Ho it seemed like I was good to go. The timely release of Hyper-V RC0 meant that I could ...

  • Windows Hyper-V and Wireless adapters - using RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Service)

    I see that Ben Armstrong has posted instructions on how to use Windows Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to give your Hyper-V virtual machines access to networks via a wireless adapter. However ICS does not appear to work if the network that your wireless adapter is connected to uses the 192.168.0/24 subnet (as this is used on the internal ...

  • Moving a Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V virtual machine

    Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V stores a list of virtual machines in %systemroot%\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\virtualisation\Virtual Machines. In that folder are a set of symbolic links, that are linked to the actual config files for each virtual machine. To move a virtual machine:Shut down or suspend the virtual machineDelete the symbolic link in ...

  • Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V backup (Dell RD1000 review)

    Meta: IIS and Kerberos Part 6 is coming (for anyone interested in IIS still reading this blog) The Windows Server 2008 backup feature no longer supports direct backup to disk (you'll need third party backup software to do that). You can backup to disk though - either to a SAN (or network share). Or to disk based backup media like the Dell ...

  • Upgrading the home "data centre"

    At home I have a small virtualised lab running a number of server services. Unfortunately when provisioning my server, I didn't really consider the space needs of the virtualised Windows Home Server. Originally, I bought 2 x 500GB disks for my server, but that doesn't leave much space for the WHS after catering for all the other ...

  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2007 RTMs

    Well, I've been very busy wrapping up the first drafts for all the chapters for the upcoming Professional IIS 7.0 book (as well as taking part in a couple of Tech.Ed events), so there's been very little blogwise. However I noticed today the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2007 has RTMed according to Microsoft. So, we now ...
