  • Start and Stop Hyper-V using .NET application

    Is there a way for a .NET application to create/start/stop Hyper-V virtual machine?I'm looking to create an automated means of starting/stopping virtual machines from a C# application. I know you can do it via P/Invoke but that's not the best option for me. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks!

  • Which VMware API should I use for a read-only application?

    I'm looking to write a simple application in C# that polls a vCenter for all of its ESX servers (followed by each ESX server for all of its VMs). Basically, it will collect real-time analytics and put them into a database. This is where I'm stuck: I can't figure out which VMware API to use. Which...

  • Why are so many languages written for the Java VM?

    I'm flabbergasted by the number of languages that have been written for Java VM. Why are so many needed? What is it about Java that makes so many people write new languages for it as opposed to building a new VM for each new language?

  • Remote processing on Azure Virtual Machines

    I have long-running apps (simple console apps/Windows services) on multiple Azure Virtual Machines. Occasionally, I will do a code refresh and need to stop these processes, update the code/binaries, and then restart these processes. Generally, I use PSTools (psexec) to do this remotely.  I’m...

  • Is there a reason why we shouldn’t use ESXi?

    One part of our company has 3 identical DL380 G5 servers. One of them is running VMware with one VM on it.We've started the process of migrating them over to be running ESXi. Two of the physical machines will have %99.99 of the time exactly 1 VM (the others will have two).The major advantage we're...

  • RDP issues via EC2

    I’m using Hyper-V to build a VM on my machine so that I can RDP in. I used the API to export the VHDX to VHD and upload it to AWS. The problem is that I have no security keypair to access the newly created EC2. To solve this, I created a private AMI and re-instantiated a new EC2, setting the...

  • Scripting control processes in Hyper-V VM

    I want to script a Hyper-V VM as part of a build process so that it’ll be able to launch processes specific command-lines. I’ve looked through this library, but all the operations seem to be at VM controller level instead of controlling the OS within the VM.

  • Implementing dynamic languages on a VM

    I am trying to prepare a virtual machine for handling C or some other dynamic language like Lua VM, Parrot, or Python VM. Where can I find a tutorial for doing this, apart from looking at code and design documentations of the existing VMs?

  • Path to config file in Hyper-V?

    Where does Hyper-V store the path to the config file for a given virtual machine? I thought it would be in the "rootvirtualization" name space, but it’s not there. What WMI object or field stores the path?

  • Testing OS Kernels on a Virtual Machine

    I’ve written a C+ Assembly kernel to be used in conjunction with my operating system (Windows 8). I’m having problem testing it though because it cannot easily be run on top of the OS. Is it possible to use a virtual machine to emulate my computers hardware for the test?

  • How can I revert ESXi 5.1 to snapshot daily

    I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to revert a virtual machine to the previous snapshot every day/night. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to do what I want. This is what I tried so far: - snapshot.action=autoRevert --> The VM has to HALT, REBOOT doesn't work the same. I don't want to power on my VM...

  • Hyper-V is destroying our WiFi internet connection

    This is the first time our company is using Hyper-V (on Windows 8). When we created a new virtual network switch, which was external, it somehow bridges the VMs network adapter with the WiFi. This is killing the WiFi's internet connection. What are we doing wrong?

  • Can I write a program that detects if it is running on Citrix?

    Is there a way to create a program that can detect when it is running within a Citrix environment? This may sound strange, but we run systems in a number of different environments and Citrix requires programs to function in a specific way. Is there a reliable way to do this?
