Extension to December 1st of The Great Big Hyper-V Survey of 2012
As most of our readers know by now is that we are currently asking users of Hyper-V to complete our second edition of The Great Big Hyper-V Survey. Last year we had several hundred people who took part in the survey.
Our original plan was to close the survey after one month, but after some consultation with Aidan Finn and Damian Flynn, we decided to keep the survey open until December 1st.
You Can enter the survey here:
Meanwhile I had also offered a free copy of our Microsoft Private Cloud Computing book, which is a great resource on several System Center 2012 products and deployment of Hyper-V in a Private Cloud scenario. Because we have kept you waiting for another month, I am pleased to triple the number of books offered as a prize.
Both Aidan Finn and Damian Flynn were so kind to each offer an extra copy so now we have three Microsoft Private Cloud Computing books available.
So here is another opportunity for you to win one of the three books or enter the survey if you have not been able to do this. We are stressing that this survey is read by Microsoft and we are still able to influence what is important for the next release of Hyper-V. Be our guest!
All you need to do is tweet or blog with a reference to this blog:

A hotfix has been released today for Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V servers which are unable to access LUNs over a Synthetic Fibre Channel after a VM is live migrated to another host in the cluster. This problem can occur if the following conditions are met: You have two Windows Server 2012-based computers that have the…

If you are a regular reader of this blog you have noticed that a lot of content that is written is related to Windows Azure Pack (WAP for short), formerly known as Windows Azure Services for Windows Server. There are also numerous good other blogs as well as videos about WAP written by fellow MVPs…

Not very often do I remember a Windows Update KB article off the top of my head, but this time I have talked and written about KB2855336 so often that it was probably written into my short term read-cache.. If you have been careful and missed the first version of this update because you rather…

In my last blog I sent out a red alert on a killer Windows Update that had not been sufficiently tested. The net result was a full crash of a two-node System Center fabric management cluster. The fabric was still in the making and backups were only provisionally taken in the form of Virtual Machine…

A while ago I wrote a blog about problems with virtual guest clusters and NIC teaming. See this link. I ended this blog with a workaround: disable checksum offloading. Today I received a message from Microsoft Premier Support that they found the root cause for this problem: The NetFTflt (Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter Performance…

[Update July 13, 2013 - I was able to deploy the newly issued KB2855336 to all of my physical and guest cluster nodes. There have been no issues so far. The same KB will also show up in most of your VMs as it is a collection of 21 updates touching all kinds of bugs…

Today I received word from Microsoft that I am re-awarded as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Virtual Machine. When I received my first award for Cluster back in 2009, I could not begin to understand its consequences and how much such an award would mean in terms of recognition, access to knowledge, direct contact…

Update June 26, 2013: Cristian Edwards notified me that he has updated the script to now support using a cluster name. That will save you some typing if you cluster counts 64 nodes. See end of blog Update July 1, 2013: Great to see that Niklas Akerlund and Trond Hindenes made great extensions on the…

Recently I was involved in an implementation of a private cloud based on Hyper-V Server 2012 and System Center 2012 SP1. We’ve build a two node Hyper-V cluster (HP DL 980 servers) dedicated for Fabric Management. Both nodes in the cluster have a total of four 10Gbit interfaces (Emulex). Two of them are combined in…

We already know that we wouldn’t have to wait four years to get significant new features in Windows Server & Hyper-V. Looking at the list of builds since the first version of Hyper-V, we can observe there were considerable intervals between the releases of Windows Server 2008 (R2) and Windows Server 2012. We’ve seen three…
