PowerShell, Hyper-V and WMI

February 15th, 2011 by and tagged , ,

I’ve started an article over on the PowerShell Survival Guide Wiki to drop in quick hits how to do “stuff” with Hyper-V, using PowerShell and the native WMI interface of Hyper-V. The WMI namespace for Hyper-V is  “root\virtualization”. Turns out managing Hyper-V isn’t as hard as I thought, at least in no small part because working with WMI in PowerShell is actually pretty straightforward. I’m still learning and poking around, but this stuff is all over the net if your bingle skills are good. Today I added the simple steps needed to create a VHD, either dynamic or fixed, to the Wiki page. Any one who wants to join in is more than welcome – that’s what a Wiki is all about after all.
