Hyper-V Training – Day 3

#Hyper-V

So its Wednesday and day 3 … today was more SCVMM

Just great, Windows Update bounced my laptop and lost this post .. Greeaaaat. So let me try and remember .. Oh, what is cool is that you can create a Windows 2008 Failover cluster.  You can then install hyper-v on both nodes of the cluster.  Now when the cluster is created you can actually “cluster” a virtual machine so it can failover to either node … kewl
