How to tell if Desktop Delivery (VDI) is a Relevant Option

These are a few key reasons that Desktop Virtualization or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is such an important driver currently and how to tell in the future if it is a relevant delivery option.

• Minimum device resources in each device tier and the cost–tier relationship.
• Ubiquity of Internet connectivity.
• Hardware relationship to operating system base requirements.
• Operating system hardware dependence, configuration complexity, and size compared to local storage cost/size.

Copy vhd's to your Hyper-V server via Powershell

What do you do if you want to copy your vhd's from a share to your storage on your Hyper-V server?

I guess cut and paste...

What if you don't want to get your fingers all sticky from the GUI?

Lets try some powershell:

First lets create the directory so wh acn have a copy of the vhd's where we want it. Lets create a folder in the c:\ drive called VHD-staging

New-Item c:\VHD-staging -type directory

Great now we have a directory.
Now lets connect to the share:

New-PSDrive -name P -psprovider FileSystem -root \\\ShareName

Why reconfigure proxy.xml for your vCenter and XenDesktop?

Wow, a lot of jumping between XenServer, Hyper-V and vSphere this week. It really was fun, fun, fun until I had to take my daugher’s T-bird away. But that is yet another story.

Today’s topic is everyone’s favorite xml file, proxy.xml. What fun! Ah, the pleasant days spent in a customer’s datacenter, conference room, or cube hacking away at this file. I could tell you stories only fit for the “National Enquirer”. Unfortunately today I am only going to tell stories about why this particular CTX article is so important.

Use Powershell to add the Host to SCVMM from your XenDesktop DDC

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. A case of pneumonia and Kylie had bronchitis so I'm a bit behind.

Here is an interesting bit:
I grabbed some code from bsonposh.com and added it to some code scraped out of SCVMM to get something to automate adding a host to SCVMM.

I used bsonposh.com Set-myCredential.ps1 to save a credential file:

$user = "xendesktop\administrator"
$file = "c:\scripts\credentials.enc.xml"
$Credential = Get-Credential
