Are you a Hyper-V user? Don't miss these useful tips by Virtualization Review:

-Use PowerShell to create a list of all your virtual machines(VM) including name and IP address without logging or going to networking tab.

-Enable router guard and DHCP guard options to avoid unauthorized networking accesses. You can do it using VM libraries, PowerShell or Set-VMNetworkAdapter cmdlet.

-Run Measure-VM command in PowerShell to get a VM resource utilization report. Remember to enable this option in VM first.

-If you have a Hyper-V cluster, you can use Cluster Validation Wizard. Remember to run in occasionally after deploying the cluster.

-Try Windows Server 2016 nested virtualization. Keep it in mind for your upcoming upgrades.

-Stay tuned to Nano Server, the small operating system which provides four main functionalities: Hyper-V, failover clustering, file server and other storage functions and reverse application compatibility.

-If you’re often using Hyper-V, consider using Azure stack. It allows to run Azure services in your own datacenter and it has nearly everything most environments need.

UDS Enterprise is compatible with Hyper-V, enabling the deployment of virtual and physical desktops, applications and other Windows & Linux services with Microsoft’s hypervisor.
