System Center 2012 SP1 CTP2 – Virtual Machine Manager Improvements #1

I cloud not resist to install the CTP2 of System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager. First I have to say the CTP2 of Virtual Machine Manager runs unbelievable stable and fast. If you may have worked with other releases of VMM you know what I mean.

I had not much time to check for everything which is new but I found two interesting things which are in my opinion great improvements.

Hyper-V Host Hardware – Logical network connectivity

In my opinion the new design of network adapter pages with the logical network selection is a great usability improvement, and makes much more sense now.

This things will maybe change until RTM of System Center 2012 SP1 but at the moment they look pretty good. I am sure there is a lot more in CTP2.
