PowerShell Management Library for Hyper-V

A project to provide a PowerShell management library for Hyper-V

Hyper-V Web Manager

Hyper-V Web Manager (HVWM) is a web-based management utility for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V role. The web manager will eventually give you most of the functionality that is available in the Microsoft Management Console for Hyper-V.
The project is not an official Microsoft project and is not developed by Microsoft employees.

Hyper-V Server 2008 Local Management scripts / UI

Hyper-V Server 2008 is based on Server Core and has no local management possible. One must have a second machine (either Windows Vista SP1 or Windows Server 2008). This project intends to develop various scripts and put them together in to a small user interface for easier / local management of hyper-v server. Most of the functionality (except VM console access / Guest Install) achieved using Hyper-V Management MMC will be mimiced here.

Hyper-V Powershell Snap in

A Powershell snap-in to access and manager Hyper-V Servers (locally or remotely)

Hyper-V Machine Recovery Tool

Small tool to recover/import Hyper-V machines which were not exported. This will include snapshots related to the Hyper-V machine.
