Managing Hyper-V Integration Services with Windows Powershell

Not that long ago, I completed another blog entry for Altaro’s Hyper-V Hub regarding the management of Hyper-V Integration Services using Windows Powershell. powershell

Some people will look at that statement and say to themselves “Well gee…  why would I want to do that? Managing the integration services is easy enough via the GUI. Why bother with Powershell?”

Ok…  Valid statement, when your talking about a small number of VMs.

What happens when your talking about 1000 VMs? 2000 VMs?

Do you really want to manage the settings via the GUI on that many VMs?

I Didn’t think so. Work of this magnitude, with the potential for automation, is really where Powershell shines.

In said post, I lay out all the associated Powershell cmdlets, and demo how they are used to make the various changes possible when manipulating Integration Services.
