Also, in this month’s issue of Technet magazine, there is an article on SCVMM R2 RC by Paul Schnackenburg. Its definitely a good read as it explains much awaited Hyper-V’s virtualization features such as Live/Quick Migration of VMs between hosts, self-service portal, new PowerShell VMM-specific cmdlets and much more.
