[isapros] Re: Hyper-V is so damn kewl...

Hyper-V has "issues" with their offloading.

You have two options for ISA 2004/6:
1. change (add) this
HKLM\System\CutrrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
Name: DisableTaskOffload
Type: DWORD
Value: 1
(reboot the machine)
2. use legacy NICs

You have one option for TMG:
1. use legacy NICs

This problem is fixed in the RC1 builds; I'm using synthetic NICs all around.
That's why it took me so long to get this deployed for myself; they had to fix 
the networking problems.

RC1 should be available to "normal folks" soon.

How does the legacy NIC effect an ISA deployment? Any issues? I haven't
been able to deploy Hyper-V yet with normal NIC drivers.

thanks,

Hyper-V is hardware-based (e.g., uses the hardware virtualization).
As of SP1, Virtual Server R2 adds "hardware-assisted" virtualization.
AFAIK, the only VMWare product that dies this is ESX...

Which are you implying is hardware-based virtualization?  Or were you
just "saying"? :)

Egenera looks pretty good for hardware-based virtualization, though.
The client I'm working at currently will probably be setting up a couple
of chassis sometime in the near future.  Should be interesting.

        SCVMM is intended to be the management tool of choice; that's
why they're building it.
        RC1 should hit the streets soon; it'll be well worth the time to
grab & install it.

        I was most unimpressed by the hyperv management console. The
system center/virtual machine manager was the only way I would ever use
it, but you need to be using multiple servers to warrant that, but given
that the vmm was built on powershell it would be a good thing to drive
from the cli if you are so inclined. That and running (read) managing HV
on SC was near impossible unless you had rsat or another hyperv machine
you could connect to the console (which wasn't available at the time).
You were supposed to be able to use wmi to drive it but I was told that
MS hadn't finished the docco on that. It might be great when they finish
it.

        Vmware beta2 has some nice things about it and you can use the
ESX client to manage it. Having used ESX and Virtual Iron in production
I would say they have a way to go but I'm keen to setup an environment
at work. We have 60 or so standalone vm boxes that dev and qa use and we
are looking at using something to consolidate them, hyperv seems like it
will fit the bill there.

        Got my ISA 2006 server running on Hyper-V now.
        I'll soon migrate to TMG (probably not today; gardening awaits).
