This is a live demo by Travis Wright and Jim Pitts recorded in Berlin at TechEd EMEA.

In this demo we show how you can automate the provisioning of Virtual Machines using Service Manager to control the automated part of the process and using Opalis to do the automated provisioning of the VMs via SCVMM. This pattern of creating automation can be repeated over an over to automate all kinds of other things like: User provisioning/de-provisioning, VM moves, VM clones, New VMs, Start/Stop VMs, Software distribution via SCCM, Maintenance Windows with SCOM, and on and on.

This video has everything, including troubleshooting when there is a problem on first run. If you want to see how these solutions work together, and how easy it is to build out workflows in Opalis, take a look at this video.
