Hyper-V RC1 Released

May 21, 2008

The much anticipated Release Candidate 1 release of Hyper-V hit the Internet yesterday.  You can now download the x64 and the x86 versions of this update.  Microsoft has also made some release notes available that you should read before deploying this update.

There is also an update required if you want to manage the RC1 release of Hyper-V using a Windows Vista x64 or x86 PC.

Kurt Roggen also reports some changes in this build of Hyper-V based on customer feedback@

  • Integration Components for Windows Server 2008 guest’s included in Integration Services Setup Disk
  • New icons/graphics for Hyper-V Manager and Virtual Machine Connection – including a “Now” icon in the snapshot pane
  • IPv4 Address Migration – when creating a new Virtual Network bound to an adapter with a static IPv4 address the IPv4 settings are migrated to the new virtual adapter

We don’t have long to wait until RTM!
