Silversands Customers


Hyper v rapid deployment program siemens standard drives

Hyper-V Rapid Deployment ProgramSiemens Standard Drives

  • Manufacturing arm of Siemens Worldwide

  • Pro Microsoft organisation

    Using Windows, SQL2005, SCOM 2007, SCCM 2007, ProClarity, Exchange 2007, SharePoint + SCDPM Soon

  • Silversands Customer – We implemented their existing VMware Virtualisation platform.


Siemens key aims for hyper v rdp

Siemens Key Aims For Hyper-V RDP

  • Prove Hyper-V Performance and Reliability

  • Prove High Availability capabilities

  • Manage existing VMware virtualisation environment with SCVMM

  • Investigate SCVMM to Opsmgr integration

  • Overall – prove if Hyper-V and SCVMM could offer an alternative platform to VMware Virtual Infrastructure long term

  • The RDP took place in April 2008 and lasted 12 days


Already invested in virtualisation why change

Already invested in Virtualisation – Why Change?

  • Further benefit from existing global Enterprise Agreement

  • Better integrate with Systems Center Operations Manager (Opsmgr)

  • Aim to reduce 3rd party product support

  • Single point of support for both guest OS and Host Server

Hyper v host setup server core

Hyper-V Host Setup – Server Core

No GUI Here!

  • start /w ocsetup Microsoft-Hyper-v

  • w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags:DOMHIER

  • netsh interface ipv4 set address name="" source=static address= mask= gateway=

  • netdom renamecomputer <ComputerName> /NewName:<NewComputerName>

  • WinRM quickconfig

  • slmgr.vbs –ato

  • localgroup Administrators /add <domain>\<username>

  • netdom join <ComputerName> /domain:<DomainName> /userd:<UserName> /passwordd:*

  • cscript C:\Windows\System32\ Scregedit.wsf /au /4

  • cscript C:\Windows\System32\ Scregedit.wsf /ar 0

  • serverWerOptin /query

  • netsh advfirewall set currentprofile settings remotemanagement enable

  • netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Remote Administration" new enable=yes

  • netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8

  • sc query type= driver

  • pnputil -i -a <driverinf>

  • wevtutil el

  • wmic pagefileset where name=”<path/filename>” set InitialSize=<initialsize>,MaximumSize=<maxsize>

  • start /w ocsetup FailoverCluster-Core , MultipathIo , WindowsServerBackup, SNMP-SC

  • Wuauclt /detectnow

Better still automate the server deployment process using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (Update 1)

Hyper v clustering

Hyper-V Clustering

  • Cluster base configuration much simpler than W2K3

    • No service account definition

    • New cluster validation process

  • Simpler Geo-Cluster networking

  • Easier resource configuration

  • Enhanced Quorum

  • VSS Integration

  • GPT disk support

  • Note: MSCS 2008 Clustering requires SCSI3 Persistent Reservations – can affect older arrays

  • Remember to apply the recommended cluster patch

  • http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951308


Hyper v backup

Hyper-V Backup

  • April 2008

  • Limited integration options for Hyper-V backup

  • Utilised built in volume shadow backup

  • Fairly complex backup and restore process

  • Now

  • Mainstream backup products support Hyper-V

  • Provide image level backup with file level recovery


System center vmm 2008

System Center VMM 2008

Available VIA Server Management Suite Enterprise (SMSE) or Standalone


Scvmm to vmware virtualcenter integration

SCVMM To VMware VirtualCenter Integration

  • SCVMM to VMware Integration simple to configure

  • Extend SCVMM features e.g. Powershell integration

  • Extends Opsmgr coverage without utilising 3rd Party Tools

  • Intelligent placement enhancements

  • Will need to go back to VirtualCenter console in some cases


Scvmm pro tips experience

SCVMM PRO-TIPS Experience

  • Actually fairly complex to configure even if Opsmgr is well managed.

  • Don’t expect a deluge of pro tips in the beginning.

  • MS recommend allowing a bedding in period before expecting VM performance tips to work well.

  • Extensible so should capabilities should improve over time as management packs are released.

  • Not an install and forget option – you definitely get what you put in.


Summary were the original aims achieved

Summary – Were The Original Aims Achieved

  • Prove Hyper-V Performance and Reliability

  • Prove High Availability capabilities

  • Manage existing VMware virtualisation environment with SCVMM

  • Investigate SCVMM to SCOM integration

Overall – prove if Hyper-V and SCVMM could offer an alternative platform to VMware Virtual Infrastructure


Future enhancements

Future Enhancements

  • Windows 2008 R2

    • Hyper-V 2.0

    • Live migrate

    • Cluster File System

    • Increased CPU Core support

    • Hot Add Hardware

  • Powershell 2.0

  • Reporting Pack for SCVMM imminent


Considerations for your own hyper v proof of concepts

Considerations for your own Hyper-V Proof of Concepts

  • Infrastructure planning and preparation key to achieving results

    • Network Setup

    • Storage Configuration

    • Management requirements

  • Consider sizing your virtualisation candidates to determine your POC layout

  • Ensure all the current patches are applied – makes a significant difference.

  • The Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 3.2 is useful in identifying and sizing consolidation candidates
