MDT Monitoring is very usefull feature for IT Pro that deploy or Capture Windows Image very often.

Two weeks ago suddenly i receive in our community system a very simple question from a user but to be honest i didn't have any answer for him.

I found it very intresting so i start and search for the solution.


The question was:

Is it possible to have the logs use a unique name so it doesn't keep adding to the same BDD file?

Before start to explain what was the solution it's recommended read previous articles like 

HYPER-V Automatic Virtual Machine Activation

Windows Server 2012 R2 introduce a feature called Automatic Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA). Until Windows Server 2008 R2 the only feature to activate Virtual Servers in HYPER-V Host was to login in Server and follow the steps to Activate with the License Key.

With Automatic Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA) this can change and activate Virtual Servers that are in HYPER-V Host without need the Licenses Keys that you have for different version of Windows. 

Now let's explain how can use this feature


In my previous articles i wrote about Live Migration without HYPER-V Failover Clustering.

But Last month while  setup a HYPER-V Failover Clustering. encounter an error.  

Today i talk about the specific error and how can resolve it without need to search hours in Goodle to find the solution.

The error was the Event ID 1196 and appears after create the clusters in HYPER-V Hosts.

So let's start


In the first Part explain some of the reasons that requested to move Virtual Machines in different HYPER-V Hosts.

We found out that Live Migration has different Move types and different Move Options that can use. 

The most important is that Live Migration can move the Virtual Machine from one Hyper-v Host to another without no impact on virtual machine availability to user.

This time i will explain the rest of Move types and options that can use it.

Different reasons like storage space , lack of resources as RAM , CPU  or migrate to a new Server requested to move virtual machines in different Hosts.

Fortunately HYPER-V has many options to move virtual machine from one HYPER-V to another HYPER-V Host. 

Today i will explain a how can  use Live Migration in non Clustered Environment to move a Virtual Machine from one Host to another.

In the past i wrote articles that describe different Options to move a Virtual Machine in new HYPER-V Host

Windows Server 2012 HYPER-V has a great feature that to be honest until few months ago i didn't know it. The feature is the Domain Controller Clone. As IT Pro you must know that to restore a Domain Controller it's not so simple. It's not only a Restore from a Backup. You must have prepare a plan with specific tests to Restore successful a failed Domain Controller.

With a simple words everything else as restore , copy , snapshot except rebuilding from scratch it has the potential to create more problems in the directory.

In my Review of Nakivo Nakivo Backup & Replication  v7 Review  i had emphasize the feature of  Nakivo that can  install and use it in Synology and WD NAS.

Today i would like to inform at May 4th Nakivo Release a new Version of VM Backup that you can install and use it in QNAP NAS.

After read the the news i decide to publish it in the blog.

Nakivo Backup & Replication v7 Review

In today world backup software it's not the most exciting thing for Directors or CIO in a company. Company must spend some money for the Backup Software and  Windows Licenses to be idle most hours of the day.

For this reason Backup Software must be easy and reliable.

How can enable Dhcp and Router Guard in HYPER-V

Windows Server 2012 HYPER-V has some advance features that don't use it but you can protect you from different incidents in your environment or security issues.

Small environment which use HYPER-V maybe don't need these advance features but large environments with lot of Virtual Servers  maybe it's very useful.
