I recently had the opportunity to chat with Rodney Fournier, Senior PFE at Microsoft, about building and running a testing infrastructure with our virtualization and management products, including Hyper-V R2, SCVMM, Operations Manager, Configurations Manager, PowerShell, well…Rod works with the whole stack basically. You kind of have to work with the whole stack to get a good pre-production test, don’t you?

Some useful links if you are in the same situation:
- KMS error codes (it is not as hard as some think to set up KMS so that you don’t pull a VM out of storage only to find that it won’t start because it missed it’s activation period)
- Configuring SCVMM PRO
- Network Mix (you can use VS 2010 to constrain network bandwidth on your VMs for tests)
