Virtual Machine Servicing Tool 2012 Beta

Maybe you have missed the servicing tool that you used to rely on in the Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2-days?

Well, I am happy to announce that it`s preparing for a comeback.
This tool is designed to work with System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager.

When you have played around with Windows Server 2012, I you noticed the option to install roles and features on your offline VMs VHDs as well? Guess what, the Servicing Tool will take advantage of that, and leverage this new option.

You can now service the following:

  • Offline virtual machines in a SCVMM library.
  • Stopped and saved state virtual machines on a host.
  • Virtual machine templates.
  • Offline virtual hard disks in a SCVMM library by injecting update packages.

  • To read more and download the Beta, visit the Microsoft System Center - VMM blog.
