New Virtualization Bits

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith


So I got some new bits for the Virtualization beta that I have been working on and the changes that they made, are all to the CLI so no real GUI still. That would be ok but all the Powershell scripts that I had written no longer work since they interface directly with the CLI. So I had to make some modifications to my scripts, but I will say that after seeing the changes that were made, I was able to make my scripts much more efficient. Soon I hope that I will not have to use my scripts. For now though, using my scripts it takes me about 1/2 the time to provision databases and find the snapshot that I want to provision from. My script also makes it very easy for me to provision a new VDB from an existing VDB. It is very cool and very fast. They also fixed the file_id issue that I was having earlier. It is pretty nice being in the Beta for this and being able to provide feedback that really drives the product.

More to come on this as I get new bits.
