Using Virtual Machine Manager as a Cross-Platform Management Tool
In the last chapter, we set up System Center Virtual Machine Manager. Even so, our VMM server really doesn’t do much yet. As such, this chapter is all about putting Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) to work. The main goal of this chapter is to show you how to connect Virtual Machine Manager to both Hyper-V and vSphere and to demonstrate how to use it as a cross-platform management tool. We will start out by bringing our virtualization hosts under management by deploying the required agents. As we go along, I will show you some techniques for using VMM to manage your virtualization infrastructure.
