What's new with VMMSSP 2.0 SP1?

  • Import virtual machines allows DCIT (Datacenter) administrators to re-import virtual machines that were removed from the self-service portal and also import virtual machines created outside the portal but managed by VMM.
  • Expire virtual machines feature provides the user the ability to set an expiration date for the VMs being created or imported so that the vms auto-delete after the set date. This feature also provides users the flexibility (through role-based access) to set or change the expiration date for the vm.
  • Notify administrators feature provides functionality to notify BUIT(Business Unit) or DCIT(Datacenter) administrators about various events in the system (for e.g., Submit request, Approve request,Expire virtual machine, and so on) via email through SQL server mail integration.
  • Move infrastructure between business units feature allows DCIT(Datacenter) admins to move an infrastructure from one business unit to another when the system is in Maintenance Mode.

You can get it through Microsoft Connect.
