I headed down to Byward Market this evening and picked up a Beaver Tail for Tracey and I to split. I am in Ottawa on my Hyper-V course and Tracey has come along for some rest and relaxation. Supper was wonderful and the walk around town was nice as well.
The Hyper-V course I am taking is 6422A – Implementing and Managing Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V at CTE Solutions. It is part of their Microsoft Skills Week promotion they had going on. So far it has been pretty good. I am already using Hyper-V in the production environment at work, but I was looking to expand on my skills a little more. A lot of times when we learn things on our own, we learn what we need to know and don’t get to know some of the other features which can help us out. By taking the course, I find myself picking up new things and getting ideas for how I can better support my environment.
So far, I am Day 1 of 2 (the course was compressed into a 2 day course from 3). Our first day saw us creating Virtual Machines, creating VHD disks for use later. We also learned about snapshots. remote administration and high availability. Tomorrow we will learn about physical to virtual migrations, using Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) and Powershell scripts for use on Hyper-V.
