Learning Hyper-V Lesson-1

So far I have learned two hypervisor VMWare ESX and XenServer . Done some big implementation with these hypervisor. Now I have started implementing Citrix solution on Hyper -V 2008R2 . Yeah  at SYN2013 Citrix has formally announced  Hyper-V 2012 support with XenDesktop 7 and will support XD 5.6 with Hyper-V 2012 post October. Though some post claim that they have done implementation of XenDesktop 5.6 with Hyper-V 2012 but Citrix do not support it. Main reason is SCVMM 2012 where MS has made changes to API significantly. XenDesktop uses SCVMM significantly to manage and control virtual machine.

Anyway with this post I will explain how we install VM tools on Hyper-V VM: It is called "Integration Service". With XenServer it is called Xen tool and with VMWare it is called VM tool

I will also carry out few series on how cluster is setup and how Hyper-V is integrated.
